You probably have at least one airliner model in your stash waiting to be built. Finescale Modeler Magazine Associate Editor Aaron Skinner authored a book aptly titled Modeling Airliners. This week on The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour we chat with Aaron about his book and building airliners!
This week we chat with author Erik Simonsen about his new book PROJECT TERMINATED Famous Military Aircraft Cancellations of the Cold War and What Might Have Been. The subjects discussed in his book have been a topic of discussion among scale modelers for decades…especially What-If’ers!
This week I chat with some enthusiastic scale modelers who attended this years Family Flightfest at EAA’s AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, including Jeff Herne who is a regular exhibitor at the event. We’ll hear what some of the kids thought about the Make N Take which Zach Baughman planned and hosted as part of the event.
We’re taking your thoughts and comments about what new kits you’d like to see the manufacturers tool up to produce. This week we’ll take your suggestions for those you’d like to see in 1:72 scale. In the coming weeks the other scales will be polled.
I’d like to hear from you, so if you are a Skype user, contact us via Skype: theplasticscalemodelinghour or if you’re technically savvy enough with your smartphone or computer, record your comments and email them us. Or if a written email is all you can muster that’s okay too. Just send either to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep your response to your top three 1:72 scale kit suggestions! If you’re willing to be a guest on the show to discuss this topic, please indicate that too. I’ll follow up with you to schedule it.
This week on The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour a conversation with Master Modeler Carl Rees. At 67 Carl still enjoys not only building but scratchbuilding his passion-automotive subjects, but he also enjoys building ships and aircraft too.
Do you remember as I do wandering the aisle of the local hobby shop scanning the kits setting on the shelves, absorbing the images of the box art into your mind? As your eyes scanned your brain was recording everything, what the kit was, who made it and in what scale. Then suddenly BAM! you locked onto something that you saw triggered the I GOT TO BUILD THAT!
This week on The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour we spend time with two crewmen from Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron One One Three…VAW-113 The Black Eagles from their home base at Naval Air Station-Point Magu, California. Listen as we hear about operations onboard the E-2C Hawkeye.
It is with heavy heart I share with you the passing of a fellow USAF Veteran, Ed Rasimus. Ed was my guest on episode #4 . I am so glad I got to meet him and share his story with you. The books he wrote and signed for me will always be a treasured part of my collection.
