Episode Info

Episode Info:

The weekend is finally here and so is March!  Episode 62 of the Bench Time Podcast we have with us special guest Mark Schreier of Foggy Mountain Models Craftsman Kit Structures!  Mark shares with us a bit of insight into the makings of On3 and O scale craftsman kits which Foggy Mountain Models is known for and he tells us a lot about how they can be detailed out to look super realistic just like HO Scale kits can.  He also tells us all about a new and first ever release of an HO scale kit which is soon to be out April 6 and 7 at the The Great Scale Model Train Show in Timonium Maryland and on his website

Then we get into placing smaller structures in places we all often forget about or are just too small and tricky, like between tracks and on turnouts and corners.  We have a look into the brick and stone block textured paper products that we have spoken of on the Podcast many times and have shown incorporated in some of our models and layout.  Mark sells these sheets that are just fabulously detailed better then any product we’ve seen, and we chatter on about their application and how easy they really are to work with.

Throughout the show we share ideas about the older kits and how they were made then as compared to years back, and how they start accumulating in piles on a shelf and the debate within ourselves of if we should save them or build them (we choose the latter everytime). So during our walk back in time to our early years of building kits and how much they too have changed~  This was a great episode you all need to check out and listen in as you build whatever is on your bench this weekend! Enjoy!
