I VERY MUCH appreciate Notch 8, especially when Pierre Oliver demonstrates a modeling technique.  The interplay between accomplished modelers Trevor Marshall and Pierre Oliver is worth all of my TMT subscription!  The last two episodes on buiklding flat resin kits has been very good.  Although I have built a number of resin kits, I have many more to go.  That effort has been on hiatus while my dream monster layout has been under construction, but Pierre and Trevor have me itching to pull out a box (car) and start building (modeling) again.  Most of us develop our own techniques for flat kits, but it is always interesting to see other's take on the process.  Given Perre's experience, I have been all ears and eyes on this set of episodes.        --Bill Decker

Very much enjoyed the first two parts on building flat resin kits but is there going to be additional parts?  Very interesting and hope there is more to come soon.  All the best, mike garber
