Welcome to Episode 6 of the Scale Model Podcast.
In this podcast, I aim to entertain, inform, and hopefully promote the hobby of scale model kit building, with interviews, reviews and news about the scale model hobby.
Our guest today is Anthony Goodman from Goodman Models
Anthony has been interested in models as far back as I can remember. His Dad is an HO scale model railroader and I caught the bug from him. Many Saturday mornings were spent at Niagara Central Hobbies during his early and teen years! He is a model maker interested in all sorts of vehicles – He loves Japanese sci-fi Animation from when he was a kid – especially Macross, Robotech, Gundam, but he does enjoy all subjects – from armor to aircraft!
Anthony is really interested in delving deeply into techniques and tools from the model building hobby from the past masters right up to today’s cutting edge. He got involved with creating the Super Sanding Blocks as a way to finance his hobby passion and it proved to be a rich experience. For him, using tools to make tools and models really drives his passion and the enjoyment of scale modeling.
