Yes, February 27th is here with only one more day to go to reach March. Sure the official start of spring is with the spring equinox in late March but just the word March sounds so much warmer than frosty February. After a sweltering winter of global warming with record cold and record snow falls, the spring is welcome and one can already see the first green shoots coming up. The earth is stirring and waking from a frozen hibernation. Likewise new warship kits are appearing at the break of spring. Here is one of the early shoots but this one is a big, burly bud in 1:350 scale.
