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.

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.

Fast, Faster and Showing Off the Good Stuff! My Model Bench. The IPMS Palouse Area Modelers show was a week ago (Oct 1st) and with that over I can get Friedrich back on the bench.

Podcast Roundup 10/6/2022

All Your Podcasts are Mine! Seattle, WA “Museum of Flight” Road Trip. Sometimes it’s better to let things slide when something really important comes up – and in this case, reviewing podcasts took a back seat to a trip over to the west side! Back in late September a couple of the guys from myContinue reading “Podcast Roundup 10/6/2022”
