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 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”

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”

Plastic Model Mojo Ep77

“Let’s be Clear” Mews from My Bench. The 1:48 Armory Fairey Flycatcher showed up on my doorstep today all the way from Ukraine! Looking through the kit I found PE, color schemes for four aircraft off the HMS Hermes, one off the HMS Furious and one off the HMS Glorious and 3D printed engine partsContinue reading “Plastic Model Mojo Ep77”

Plastic Model Mojo Ep75

“Aftermarket – Then & Now” On My Bench. This morning was 40k Warhammer painting. I’ve moved along with touching up the Space Marines but found painting the white insignia a bit disappointing. The raised insignia doesn’t have really defined edges so one I did looks a bit wonky. Not really being pleased I decided toContinue reading “Plastic Model Mojo Ep75”

Podcast Roundup 10/9/2022

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. The show was great with close to 150 models on the tables. Attendance was good and the door prizes andContinue reading “Podcast Roundup 10/9/2022”

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”

Plastic Model Mojo Ep73

On location at the 2022 MMCL Invitational. Breaking out the Litter. Bases by Tim this week got off to a good start with my finally getting around to painting up the Marsden Mat for the ACH-47A Chinook Gunship. After consulting my resident Vietnam Helicopter expert (Bob) and doing copious amounts of googling, I settled onContinue reading “Plastic Model Mojo Ep73”
