Great Show, Great Topics

My favorite modeling podcast. It’s nice to see two people come at the hobby from completely different approaches (scale, genres, old versus new kits, etc), which helps keep the show interesting. Episode 63 (Ed Baroth) is great. So is episode 76, Waxing Nostalgic. But…they’re all good.
