Last year I found Mike Duncan’s The History of Rome podcast. So far I’m about 35 episodes in and I like it very much. A couple of weeks ago I found his other podcast Revolutions. The first series covers the English Civil War (1642-51), The Protectorate (1653-59) and The Restoration (1660).
With that in mind, this video from the Royal Armouries caught my eye when it came up at the end of another video I was watching. I really wish the audio quality was better, but it is what it is.

Sometime in the early 90s a new magazine for plastic model builders hit the market. I don’t remember the name anymore but IIRC it was primarily for aircraft modellers. What I DO remember is a Vampire on the cover with the heading “Sexy Vamps!”.
Mom later told me I was about to catch hell for bringing “that kind” of magazine home until she realized it was about model airplanes…
