THE Scale Modeling Deep-Dive

Huge fan of the show. Verifiable subject matter experts with fantastic insights. The depth may not be for everyone, but I’m all in. As a new scale model builder, this show keeps me hungry to learn as much as I can and is a fantastic bench companion. Check it out!

Good Enough but

The model podcast is a busy space which is not a bad thing. But honestly this podcast feels sorta juvenile. I like Wills YouTube content where he talks on his own (he gives great tutorials and has a lot to offer) but in the podcast sphere he seems to always want to dominate the conversation and push his opinions. It’s annoying enough it makes me not eager yo listen.

Philosophical Musings

Hosted by three expert scale model builders with somewhat different yet complimentary areas of expertise. Extended discussions between the hosts and equally talented guests cover philosophical issues as well abundant practical build advice. Most importantly – never a dull moment. It's a lively listen and I take lots of notes.
