MMB club news and information


We are talking with Igor about adding  modeling "bling" to the store,

and with  that in mind we are looking to get finished models to show off and hang from the ceiling to get a bit of that 'ol school charm that used 

to permeate past hobby shops here in town. Give me or Darryl a shout if you think you might have a kit that would fit the bill.


Artist's Emporium is now offering a 10% on store purchases to all MMB members. Just show your memb. card at the time of sale.

See you at the workshops...Laurie, resident Airhead

"Dave's Workshop"

MMB Airbrush Help Line

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
