Kyle interviews diorama expert Takuji Yamada with Stan Hyde from G-Fest 26!

We did it, guys! This is the last podcast recording I brought back with me from G-Fest 26 last month, and I’m thrilled to share this interview with master sculptor and diorama builder, Takuji Yamada. Yamada’s skill is incredible, please make sure to check out the links below to his book and museum and more! You will also hear the voice of modeler, G-Fest staffer and friend of the podcast, Stan Hyde.

Mega thanks to the staff at G-Fest for allowing me the amazing opportunity to chat with these amazing guests!
