In today's meet the modeler we interview Joshua Smith. Where we discuss the art, other modelers and a world scene of scale artist who are breaking out inta a new mainstream artform.

Modelers we talk about Ryan Thomas Monohan, Goon Hugs, Hank Cheng, Kevin D'Alenti, Alan Wolfson, Randy Hage, Marcel Ackle, Jens Trenckle, Ali Alemady and Henry Thong

In this episode, we talk to Mark Williams Joe Lemay. Mark is the founder of Imagine That Laser Art and a Canadian Artist. Joe is an expert in both local railroad history and was a huge influence in my modeling.

In this episode of Meet the Modeler, we talk to Evandro Lima from Brazil.

In this episode, we talk to Ramon Rhodes, the consummate modeller adjective 1. showing a high degree of skill and flair; complete or perfect.

Now since I started in this hobby, I have been a wood model kinda guy. Plastic models are a whole different beast IMHO. So talking to Ramon Rhodes is a huge opportunity for me to learn some insights into a segment of the hobby, I know little about.

Yet this segment of the hobby is probably the most popular among the young. I think that If I am going to get a better grasp on the hobby I so enjoy, I need to learn what I am missing out on. Ramon is a true gentleman, and I was honoured to enjoy this chat with him.

Ramon tells us how to win a model contest

Earlier this year I started seeing the posts of this cat from the UK, except he models the USA. How peculiar I thought to myself. So I introduced myself and asked him to have a chat with me. 

What I found is a small world, one that was very relate-able... 

What really caught my interest though was the methodical method of this modelling wizard. Usually, I am quite prepared to pick apart scenes in my mind's eye, to try and figure out how he did things. However, I was humbled a number of times, including the moment when he pointed out the mirror. THE MIRROR, I fell for that? Well, you will have to watch to see it happen.

Rob Clark is a gentleman and a great modeller. His photographs and blog posts are an inspiration for an international crowd, an accomplishment not many can achieve. 

I met Ulrike Strauch (Ulee) in the usual way. I first saw some fantastic images of her work on Facebook, and simply sent her a message. What I found was a German custom builder, that is highly talented, and not afraid to try something new.

Ulee’s scenery work is well sought out, in Europe. And after this interview was completed, my friend has started creating Tree’s so realistically, that I feel we need to talk again sometime next year. She is so very talented, and I do hope you agree.

Please, enjoy

What, Another low-cost craftsman kit? Yup, but this one is an interesting example of the cost of detail parts. While Jack em' up had less metal detail parts and was a wee bit larger, Bob's is smaller with more details parts.

These resin kits are a blast if you know what you're doing. And even if you don't, the exploded diagram is all you need, right?
