Episode 10: Subject Selection & Project Planning

Plastic Model Mojo - Tue, 04/21/2020 - 00:00

Dave and Mike shake down a couple of libations, with each straying a bit from their norms.  Then it's off to the mailbag to see what the listeners have had to say since Episode 9.  Listener mail has a new added feature staring with Episode 10.  In addition to their general commentary, listeners are asked to consider a specific question.  Episode 10's listener question is "How long do you keep your hobby related periodicals"?   That is how long do you let magazines, etc. accumulate before giving them the toss?  Let us know, Mike needs to finish cleaning up.

After an update on their current projects and recent expenditures, the guys take on the topic of selecting subjects to model, and what type of planning they do leading up to the actual build.

Mike and Dave close with a couple of solid shout outs to a few upstanding scale modelers out there who are currently helping their fellow hobbyists
