    I’m pretty sure it was your podcast where I heard mention of a new kit of a two-gunned tank. If I remember correctly there was some discussion of it being fictional, but here you are! Straight from the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung in Koblenz Germany, the actual article.

    WHAT’S ON THE BENCH



    Stuart

    Paint onto the YF19 and gloss coat put on. Engine nozzles and decals next. Starting to work on a nice Arma Hobby 1.72 Hurricane Mk1 trop. and taking some photos for the next big build…

    Geoff

    Real-life renovations in my daughter’s homes took priority, but managed to renovate and complete two projects from the 1980’s: a 1/72 Matchbox Vulcan and a 1/48 Italeri SR 71, both of which will hang from my grandsons ceilings!

    Terry

    I’ve been painting the Gamillon fleet, and have gloss coated those ships.  I did succeed in mixing a satin finish for the Earth defense ships.  Other than that, I spent some time filling gaps and fixing up a large-scale bust from Mark Yungblut’s collection. I used that at Wonderfest for a demo, and would like to get to painting it this year.

    Hello, I saw your podcast on Molotow Chrome.

    Can you tell me if i applied Molotow chrome to a clear piece of plastic eg a 1/24 windscreen or a clear piece of glass and then turned the plastic/glass around, would I still see a chrome effect 

    From the back face as well as the side i painted?

    Thanks, David

    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”

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!
