Welcome to Episode 79 of The Modelgeeks Podcast!  I should be calling this one "Better Late Than Never"!  D-Ran here coming at ya with a heart felt apology for being late with the episode but life just seemed to get in the way.

We all have that one tip or trick that we've picked up along the way that's helped us become just a little bit better at the hobby.  In this EXCITING episode the Geeks will discuss what their favorite tips and tricks are.

PMM Totally Massive Modelsphere: June 2024

Plastic Model Mojo - Fri, 06/07/2024 - 00:00

Discover the irreplaceable blend of creativity and camaraderie that makes Wonderfest in Louisville, Kentucky, truly unforgettable. Join us on this special edition of the 12-Minute Model Sphere, now temporarily transformed into the "Totally Massive Model Sphere," as we recount our exhilarating experiences at the event. We had the chance to meet Canadian modeling celebrity Anthony Goodman, who dazzled us with his first-ever seminar at Wonderfest. We'll share our reflections on the event's evolution, its significance in the modeling world, and the impressive displays that captured our imaginations.

What happens when sci-fi modelers from across the globe come together for one epic gathering? We explore the unique bond among modelers, recounting heartwarming stories of road trips, friendships, and the thrill of seeing one's work appreciated by peers. We'll spotlight exceptional talents like Jason Eaton and discuss the fascinating techniques used for weathering both traditional aircraft and fictional spacecraft. Plus, we share practical tips on maintaining a dust-free workspace and conquering the dreaded "Shelf of Doom."

Finally, get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the magic of model-making. From the pioneering efforts of Millicent Patrick to navigating the complexities of licensing agreements for iconic franchises, this episode is packed with inspiring stories. Hear from industry experts Bruce McRae and Jeff Groves as they offer their unique perspectives and celebrate the growth of our dojo community. We wrap up by encouraging everyone to share their completed models proudly, reminding our listeners of the endless creative possibilities that lie ahead.

Stuart - Started on the Tamiya 1/350 Yamato, the mould is from 1973. The plan is to build it out of the box with just an aftermarket wood deck. Started working on the hanger deck crane and hanger deck doors.

[foogallery id="3728"]

Geoff - masking and painting on the Martin Mars waterbomber, the Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and shuttle and a 1/48 V2, but just starting a 1/48 XF-85 Goblin.


Terry - A lot of work done these past two weeks, since Toshi is getting me up around 5:15. The Regult is getting decals and detail painting. The XP-47H is now in dull coat with some pastel work. I hope to have it finished the week after Wonderfest. I’m starting to paint the Yamato Dreadnaughts, with some fresh AV Game Air paints. Also, since I’ll be painting red I’ve started putting paint on a Crusher Joe Harpy fighter which has been awaiting paint for the better part of a year. Productivity!

Seans Custom Model Tools




Stuart - Same as before


Geoff - Finished Red November by W. Craig Reed. Good read about the submarine experiences during the Cold War. Started Operation Corporate by Martin Middlebrook - a history of the Falklands War. I don’t know a lot about that conflict, so this is quite interesting.


Terry - Still reading the same books. Travel and meetings have eaten into my lunch time.




Went down to a Model Train show/sale at the Elgin County Railroad Museum.
