ModelGeeks Episode 28; "Can You Make Modeling Social, Hell Yeah You Can!"
Welcome to Episode 028 of the ModelGeeks Podcast.  In this episode we’re going to discuss hanging out with your modeling buddies and building away from the comfort of your bench…taking the hobby on the road! Do you have a group of friends who build? If so, make a plan to get together, do some model building, tell some tall tales, have a drink or two, and enjoy some camaraderie.   Of course we’ll also give a run-down of what’s new out there in kits, aftermarket, upcoming shows, and other news around the hobby. We would like to thank all the listeners for the support you have given the show over the past year now. We hope to see you out and about as we hit some of the shows, starting tomorrow (Feb 26th) down in Richmond, VA at the IPMS Richmond Old Dominion Open model show and contest. See you there! If you can't make it to the shows then you can still interact with us through social media, Facebook, Instagram, and email. We also want to thank each of our sponsors for their support.
