As everyone must know by now, a lot of restrictions have been lifted for shopping. You will notice a "traffic light" style sign on the front door. Red indicates store is at capacity and you must wait outside. Green means limit of 5 can enter to shop and browse briefly or pick up on-line orders.
The awards point system is working as hoped and continues to make shopping and saving a great way to add to your model collection. Check out the HobbySense web site for more details.
Manitoba Model Builders would like to thank all the builders out there that shopped on-line for their hobby needs to help Hobby Sense deal with this very frustrating time in our lives. We hope that the special offers and excellent turn around time for orders will not be forgotten when we all get back to some sense of normality.
It's the small businesses in our city that help us to fulfill our needs for our pastimes, and we must stick by them through good and bad times.
Members and interested parties can still contact Darryl or myself for any information regarding the workings of MMB, or other related modelling items...see contact info at bottom of MMB main page.
As you are all very mush aware, Covid-19 has changed the way we shop, meet, travel, and most of all...visit our favourite hobby shop...;-) Igor has continued to bring in new releases and re-stocks to keep us builders happy with all things kit related. I cannot stress enough how thankful we are to have a dedicated shop open for our craft, so please support HobbySense during these tough times. I hope all are doing well, unlike our other founding member, Darryl Audette, who took a nasty fall and has been in a special leg cast for a few weeks now. His full recovery will take many months, and mobility is a real issue.
Hang in there gang, I think we are seeing a small bit of light at the end of this awful tunnel...now go build sumthin...!
There is a new link below to a video from Mark Rhodes down 'unda and his marvelous "Mesmerizing Paint Mixer"...chk it out
Try for the sharpest images you can, and we will post for all to see.
Needs waaayyy more storage on the walls for "stash"...LOL...!
There are times when your airbrush does NOT want to co-operate. You have cleaned it to the best of your abilities. but the brush is being stubborn and you've run out of options. That's where our new MMB Airbrush Maintenance Service comes in. Drop off your brush at HobbySense with Igor, and we will disassemble it, give it a proper ultrasonic cleaning, remove all old paint and debris, lubricate the necessary fittings, check all parts for wear and tear, and reassemble to perfect working condition. Should we encounter any parts that need replacing, we will inform you and give you the option to allow us to purchase needed parts and install, or leave that to you. If you decide to purchase the parts yourself, we will install at no extra charge. The cost for this service is $35CDN
Put the "fun" back in scale modeling...!
