Listeners of the podcast know that one of my goals in each modeling project is to try new things. One of my current projects is really allowing me to do that. I am building the Minicraft B-52H for my brother who spent 20 years flying them. It is my first 1/144 scale kit (new thing #1)

While working on the kit, I used Tamiya lacquers for the first time. (new thing #2) See previous blog post. Also, on the recommendation of my podcast partner, I tried Citadel’s Nuln Oil shader. (new thing #3) So far I really like the way it came out.
