I’ve been blogging now for about 11 years.  Recently at the suggestion of a long time modeling friend, Mike Baskette, he and I have begun doing a modeling podcast.  It has just gone live. Give it a listen.  Send any comments to plasticmodelmojo@gmail.com.

MMCL had its November meeting last night.  35 members in attendance.  Presentations on LEDs and on static grass.  Great raffle and a lot of show and tell items.

My favorite Modeling tools #10: Trumpeter seam scraper

I don’t know what particularly possessed me to buy this item from my local hobby shop.  For years I’d used the classic #11 Xacto blade for seam scraping and it worked very well.  But I picked this tool up and I must say, I am impressed.  It works well, better than the #11 blade.  It is solid-feeling in your hand and the scraper portion of the tool is hefty enough that it does a good job and you don’t get the flex that you sometimes get with a #11.  Sometimes I buy a tool and rarely use it.  That isn’t the case with this.  It is a tool I use all the time at the bench.  Worth the cost.

Friday was the MMCL “Friday Night Fights” club meeting. (A separate post on that soon.)  I took the Japanese truck and worked on it.  Then on Saturday I actually picked out a paint and got some on the wheel hubs.  The paint I picked is Colourcoats Ami-ero, which has a nice mustard yellow tint to it that I think will work well when I weather it.

Here is one of the wheels with the hub painted.  This will allow me to try out my Thinnerline cutter for the first time.
