I’ve missed posting a couple of days this past week.  I’ve been juggling a number of things, so posting just slipped by.  I will try to do better.

Not the right scale, but this is a really nice YouTube video build of the Airfix F6F in 24th scale. (h/t to Jeff “Inch High” Groves)

Beer review: Gumballhead by 3 Floyds brewing

Mike Baskette, my co-host on the Plastic Model Mojo podcast recommended this Indiana based brewery’s beer on our last episode. (episode 3).  As I am a fan of wheat beers, and I’d never heard of this one before, I had to give it a try.  Gumballhead is a bit different from most wheat beers. Most wheat beers have little or no hoppy taste.  I generally don’t like the bitterness of hops which is why I prefer wheat beers. Gumballhead has a significant hoppiness. The first sip shocked me.  However, the hop flavor fades in subsequent sips and half way thru my 12 oz, I found myself enjoying the beer.  It is a 5.6% ABV, so not weak but not overpowering.  Thanks to mike for the recommendation.
