Welcome to the Bench Time model railroading podcast! If you came to this podcast looking to hear about the latest in trains, you probably came to the wrong place... We focus on fine-scale modeling, craftsman style structures, and pay close attention to the small details.
This is a weekly podcast created with the intention to help you, the model railroader or fine scale modeler, or modeler of whatever floats your boat. We want to be able to get the best products, techniques, and ideas out in front of you, and talk about how we learned the right and wrong ways to model. We'll share our mistakes too so you can avoid them!
We aren't trying to sugarcoat anything either, so kick back, grab a beer, and go work on your layout as you listen to our model railroading podcast, because we're probably doing the same thing right now too. pb

Arrogant & Poor Quality Recording
Having listened to some of the early episodes of this podcast I can honestly say I came away thinking how stuck up these guys are. Very arrogant, and keen to criticise anyone who doesn’t adhere to their views of model railroading. Now, saying that, they are clearly very knowledgeable and passionate, which is great. However, it really irritated me how negative and condescending they were on multiple occasions - especially to the expectations they placed on newcomers to the hobby. Plus, you really need to sort out your recording equipment. I will listen to some of the newer episodes to see if they have turned things around as there is a wealth of content here that (so long as the guys are condescending still) would be very interesting to listen to.
