As I mentioned on a previous episode of the Plastic Model Mojo podcast, I had found a company making resin WWII Japanese bombs.  I ordered one of each of their sets and they arrived yesterday.  A review will follow. (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves, who spotted them in stock at HLJ.) Here is a Wikipedia article on the different types of Japanese WWII bombs.

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.
