ModelGeeks’ Podcast Ep51

“The Old Dominion Open Re-Cap” RStOR Benchtime. While I had the airbrush full of paint yesterday I went ahead and resprayed the M3 Stuart base with tan acrylic. The base was really dark and I wanted to lighten it up a bit. Citadel through the airbrush wasn’t the brightest idea but nothing another session inContinue reading “ModelGeeks’ Podcast Ep51”

On The Bench Ep158

“Models For Heroes 48hr Build” Bench RStOR. All this talk of the Models 4 Heroes Birthday Bash this weekend has been effective. At first I was ambivalent about participating but after listening to James in this episode I decided I’ll build my recent 1:48 XF5F Skyrocket acquisition. And while I prefer doing the yellow wingContinue reading “On The Bench Ep158”

Plastic Posse Podcast Ep64

“Scale Models for Veterans/Models 4 Heroes, Zach Pease & one thing would you improve” Moscow Bench News. Good on you Ivan for catching the 40k bug! As for myself, I picked up a set of Fenrisian Wolves the other day but have yet to break into them. Friday night at Da Momma’s Boyz I tookContinue reading “Plastic Posse Podcast Ep64”

February 2023 Modeling Podcast Roundup

My Modeling Mews. February found fellow modeler Bob and me heading over to the Northwest Scale Modelers Show at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA. It was everything promised. Last I heard there were over 6000 folks attending the two days but I haven’t heard numbers for modelers displaying or models displayed. All IContinue reading “February 2023 Modeling Podcast Roundup”

Plastic Posse Podcast Ep63

“Jeremy Moore, Regaining Lost Confidence and Is It Good or Bad to hop Scales/Subjects?” Seattle Bound. Silly me, I thought I could get this quick review done before heading off to the Northwest Scale Modelers Show but someone had other ideas for this morning’s routine (and by that I mean chasing the string). Bags andContinue reading “Plastic Posse Podcast Ep63”

Scale Model Podcast Ep110

“Nuremberg Toy Fair” Seattle Bound! Modeling this week consisted mostly of finishing my “Angels’ Revenge” diorama for the Northwest Scale Modelers Show this upcoming weekend. That and pulling out the models I plan on taking to the show. This will be my first time going and I’m looking forward to seeing all the models andContinue reading “Scale Model Podcast Ep110”

Plastic Model Mojo Ep 83

“Charting a Course” Dateline Meow-cow, Idaho. While I haven’t gotten to the bench a whole lot this past week, I did make a trek up to Spokane with friends and hit B&B Hobbies and Hobbytown hobby shops. Somewhere in the past week or so I saw a post online about the XF5F Skyrocket and decidedContinue reading “Plastic Model Mojo Ep 83”

Model Geeks Podcast Ep49

“Intakes …. Yep, they suck!” Benchtime, Moscow, Idaho. The base for Friedrich is coming along nicely. The resin has set up and I added snow using the toilet paper + glue method. Once the “snow” is dry I’ll add some frozen tuffs and Valhallan Blizzard to complete the scene. Weathering Friedrich with oils and attachingContinue reading “Model Geeks Podcast Ep49”

Plastic Posse Podcast Ep62

“Catching up with Uncle Night Shift, Passion For Your Work, Balancing Realism vs Impressionism” Bench Update: Moscow, Idaho. I had a bit of negative modeling this week at the bench. Maybe not really negative but a learning experience nonetheless. I painted the Thunderwolf Cavalry wolves but really didn’t like the way they turned out soContinue reading “Plastic Posse Podcast Ep62”

January 2023 Modeling Podcast Roundup

From My Bench. Inspired by a Squidmar Miniatures Youtube video (Painting Space Wolves & Unique Snow Base) I set about starting a base for Friedrich (though not quite finished). This involved creating a depression in the wood base, buying a Blue Angels model kit and cutting it up before embedding it in epoxy to createContinue reading “January 2023 Modeling Podcast Roundup”
