Mike and Dave offer opinions on the exact same “Modeling Fluid” for a change.  Then it is off to a bountiful bag of listener mail, largely about Episode 11’s special segment about crossing scales and genres.  The guys update each other, as well as the listeners, on the status of their current projects and then break down all the scale modeling joy they have purchased in recent weeks.  The special segment for Episode 12 is “Our Modeling Space”.  Dave and Mike discuss the details of their past and current hobby spaces and solicit listener input.  So tell us what your modeling space is like!Salvinos JR Models, as mentioned during Episode 12:https://salvinosjrmodels.com/Starship Modeler Article Mike refers to when discussing his second hand laminator purchase:http://www.starshipmodeler.com/tech/fh_pe.htm Dave’s Wallet Breakers:https://www.micromark.com/1-x-1-x-1-Inch-Angle-Platehttps://www.micromark.com/2-x-2-x-2-Inch-Angle-Platehttp://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=product&a=show&id=51&l=enhttps://www.airfix.com/us-en/north-american-b25b-mitchell-doolittle-raid-1-72.html Mike’s Wallet Breakers:http://shop.hphmodels.cz/en/model-kits-in-scale-132/96-katapult-arado-ar-196-v-meritku-132.html Shout outs go to:On the Bench Co-host, Ian Keizers,  for helping Mike sort out IJN ship colorshttps://otbmodellerspodcast.libsyn.com/Goodman Models (Anthony) for the exemplary customer service Dave experienced when purchasing his product.  Get your’s today!https://goodmanmodels.com/ Support the show (https://www.paypal.me/plasticmodelmojo)
Mike and Dave tackle some technical difficulties to bring you Episode 11!   After a "modeling fluid" check-in and a run through of recent listener mail, the guys update their projects with a benchtop status report.  This is followed by a discussion of the most and least favorite announcements of recent weeks.The special topic for Episode 11 is "Crossing the Boundaries of Scale and Genre".  Mike and Dave discuss the aspects and merits of modeling subjects outside of your comfort zone.From Mike's project status update, here is the Stanley Surform Shaver:https://www.stanleytools.com/products/hand-tools/demolition-tools/files-surform/714-in-surform-shaver/21-115If you are interested in some tips to increase your productivity, please checkout this interesting Blog post by listener John Byron in the UK!https://jonbryon.com/2018/06/19/on-increasing-productivity/?fbclid=IwAR1N0uXBBQLgPeOBb9Vmtcn5WSZhLK21nDbDUt5nZCAKEwxCJFm9-PzwVP4Support the show (https://www.paypal.me/plasticmodelmojo)
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 hobbyistsSupport the show (https://www.paypal.me/plasticmodelmojo)

Love the podcast. Great to see another one to go along with the Aussies, Canadians and Poms! FYI - you'd be hard pressed to find an Aussie who actually drinks Fosters!!
