An enjoyable trio

Really like the variety of styles from the three presenters. Good, gentle argument and discussion. Love the variety of topics too. And in Julian, I’ve now found the only other person who’s seen Condorman!

Love it but

Love the show but one thing would make it amazing. You need to get rid of Julian. If I want to listen to someone talk down about stuff I like, talk to everyone like they are beneath him, talk to everyone like they are stupid, or just plainly act like what he thinks is above everyone else I would go have a conversation with my teenage son. I love listening to David and Ian but when Julian speaks makes me want to go ground my son. Get the entitled child off the show!!! Yes I would say the same thing face to face.

Great way to take your hobby with you

Fount this podcast through the Fine Scale Modeler site. I enjoy scale modeling of all types and this podcast provides a great way to stay in tune with my hobby during commutes and other non-work bench time. The hosts are fantastic—knowledgeable and experienced but don’t take themselves too seriously and enjoy bantering and poking fun at each other. The show and hosts are located in Australia, while I am in the US, and it is also great to here the perspective of scale modeling on an internationally level. The show is an informative and fun way to stay tuned in to the scale modeling hobby.
