    WHAT’S ON THE BENCH



    Stuart – Slow and steady progress on the 1/72 Hasegawa YF-19.  Got to try the Dspiae MT-EC circle cutter for the first time and I’m really impressed.  The wheel hubs for the YF-19 nose gear are around 3mm and it did a fantastic job.



    Geoff – Plugging away on the 1/32 Revell Lysander, but took an Easter break to build three old molds with some of my grandchildren.  Old Hasegawa 1/72 f105 Thunderchief and A4 Skyhawks and a very old Monogram 1/72 Bearcat.  No paint, kids snipped some of the parts and I did the gluing. Then decals placed as per kids instructions!   Also getting back to finishing the Hobbycraft 1/48 P-26 Peashooter that I started in the last century!

    Terry

    Still having fun with a couple of Bandai Yamato kits, both are 3-ship sets.  I did start a Garmilla’s Fleet set to join the Cosmo Navy set.

    Disney did not renew the Star Wars license for AMT/MPC kits in North America.

    “Disney did decide to hold licensing to USA and Canada and cut Mexico out of making it a full North American release. Usually, Mexico does get to get in on the fun on new releases… I wonder if there’s a time limit on this first go around to where we see it open up in a year to other markets”

    Model Officers Mess 48 hour build for Models for Heroes.  – need to add correct link

    WonderFest Model Boot Camp

    Wonderfest Spraygunner day seminar.

    How we can help: I know Wingsy Kits, Special Hobby and others have suggested charities for a monetary donation.  I’d trust any of those the companies share.  We should remind people to be media savvy and research any other charities. There will be scams, there always are.  I’d remind people that Polish and other neighbouring nations which have charities actively helping as well as internal Ukrainian needs.

    Second: Be media savvy when sharing information.  Don’t get caught sharing disinformation or misinformation. Warfare is online as much as on the ground, know the source of the information and don’t share immediately or you might be helping the bad guys.

    Stuart – A bit more work on the AT-ST, lots of other things have been keeping me from the bench.



    Geoff the Graf Zeppelin awaits installation of the fins, control and power cars.  As it is very close to being finished, of course it’s time to move to another project!  I started on 3 V-1’s – two in 1/72 and one old Testors kit in 1/48.  They are all in the painting stage, so ….of course time to start ANOTHER new kit.  So I started on the ancient Revell D-558 Skyrocket (molds in 1955, a year before I was born!)

B2rick ,

Excellent!!

Great way to stay current with modeling trends. I enjoy this show! Keep it up guys!

Warner F ,

Um click great topics but you can’t actually listen

The host says “Um” several times a sentence and makes a clicking sound with his tongue or something. Makes this impossible to listen too. It’s a shame because I’d love to be able to listen to the this bit it’s impossibly annoying

didiumus ,

Very informative!

This podcast is a great way to stay up to date with the hobby!
