FSM Scale Model Basics videos
Posted by Tim Kidwell on Thursday, March 17, 2022 9:28 AM

Around 2012, Aaron Skinner and I started shooting scale modeling how-to videos for FSM. We produced quite a few of them, but they were really gonzo, seat-of-the-pants affairs back then--almost everything was shot on a Kodak Flip.

Anyway, we've begun refeshing all of those videos and adding new topics, too, as FSM Scale Model Basics. There are nearly a dozen so far and we're dropping three new ones every month. If you're looking for advice on modeling basics, from removing parts from parts trees to filling seams to choosing glues, check out the series

And if you have a question for us, drop one into this thread. It may be a good topic for a future video. 

Thanks!

Thanks for doing the video refresh!  I've been enjoying watching them.  They're great refreshers and I usually pick up something new from.

Always looking forward to the next the one. :)

Yeah, Aaron and I made a lot of videos between 2012-2016. I left the magazine for a while to work on other projets for the company, so that slowed things down on that front. But we're back up and running and have a lot more coming. Stay tuned!

I see they are also up on youtube. That's a smart move and will get the magazine and the hobby more good exposure. I haven't watched all of them but the ones I have seen are well produced and very well photographed. These are especially useful for those that are new to the hobby.YesYes
