    ModelGeeks Episode 72; "Back to the Future"

    Welcome to Episode 72 of The Modelgeeks Podcast!  
     
    In this episode, the Modelgeeks discuss what they are in work on, what new items are out there that they may have picked up, and generally what’s going on in the hobby from the perspective of a bunch of primarily model airplane builders.
    Have you ever looked back at your past builds and thought to yourself; "I wish I could go back and give that one kit a complete redo."?  Well in this episode were going to do just that!  We each discuss, not only the kit we would like to rebuild but also discuss what kit or kits we would like to see re-tooled. 

    We would like to thank all you listeners out there for the continued support you have given the show. We hope to see you out and about as we hit some of the shows coming up this busy 2024.

Conversational but instructional

What a great group of guys who love the industry. Always love the personal stories but they really hit the mark w how they work on and complete tasks regarding model making. While their building techniques vary, this podcast may be the best when it comes to explicitly explaining just how they get to where they’re going. They’re empathetic w novice builders. Add the guys banter, laughter and attempts at humor and this is an excellent podcast.
