Then along comes Joshua Bennett who has started a You Tube he bills as "Straight to the point no nonsense model kit tutorials, reviews and builds, other hobbies include art, cycling and baking" And that it is! This kid is fantastic and tackles modeling building like a seasoned pro. One can only hope he inspires others of his generation with his enthusiastic and expertly edited videos. View his You Tube channel HEREBe sure to subscribe and become a blobling today!!

here is JoshiBlob in his own words...

Hello, my name is Joshua Bennett, but most people know me as JoshiBlob. That’s because I have a YouTube channel called JoshiBlob where I make models. My channel is growing rapidly. I started modeling about six months ago, when I was 15. My granddad got me into modeling. He is a huge inspiration to me. He used to work with planes in hangars and on the lights on racetracks. I love listening to his war stories about all the planes he has flown in and worked on. He has since miraculously survived cancer, and I truly admire him for his bravery. If any of you modelers have an interest, you can check out my YouTube channel by searching for JoshiBlob. I hope we can all learn together.
