Podcasts for/about Scale Modeling?
Posted by Thlorian on Sunday, July 13, 2014 10:36 AM

I have several time-frames during the week at work where I can listen to the internet while I work.  Anyone know of any podcasts out there that I can listen to that are for Scale Modelers?  Or talk-show-podcasts for Scale Modelers?

I dunno about all-talk stuff but there are quite a few guys with youtube channels featuring model building that I've found very helpful. I've watched several by International Scale Modeler that were nicely done.

The closest thing to a podcast that I know of is "The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour ".

Also check youtube. Lots of users post their builds, present tutorials, and do reviews. There is also something on youtube and google called 'hangouts" where groups of invited users get together and discuss the hobby. All are well worth checking out. A word of advice. Don't restrict yourself just to your particular interest. I started out watching just scale model building. I now watch model railroading videos for weathering, landscaping, and structure building. Miniatures for figure painting. War gamers for all of the above. I even watch the crafting ladies for hints on sculpting with clay!

Once you start looking you will find than you could ever watch.

One caveat. Quality does vary from worthless to worth paying for. Just a personal preference but I refuse to watch the videos with nothing but music in the background and maybe some text explanation. I'm sure it has to do with me being a visual+auditory learner as I also cannot just listen to an audio explantions without video or pictures.

Yes indeed now there is an excellent podcast that should be exactly what you are looking for. It's called 'on the beach' a podcast for scale modellers by scale modellers. Also known as 'OTB' easy to find with a quick Google search. Good luck mate. Enjoy!
