Plastic Model Mojo Episode 64: Favorite Model Kit Brands

Fri, 05/20/2022 - 00:00

Our Patreon is live... you can also support the show here.

It's Mike and Dave in the two-seater once again.  After digesting a healthy mailbag, and tackling the other recurring segments,  the boys from Kentucky ponder a question.  That question being what is your favorite kit brand.  Barrister Dave frames it like this... "If trapped on a deserted island for the rest of your days, and had to pick one.... what kit brand would you spend your time building?"   Coming from a philosophically different direction to the hobby compared to his ole'pal Dave, Mike struggles with this one.
