There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Manitoba Model Builders is sponsored by
MMB will take a break from the workshops for June and July to let
members and their families enjoy the limited summer we get 'round these parts.
We will return in August on the last Sunday as usual, with a workshop as yet to be determined. We had plans in place but some issues arose so we will email when things are firmed up.
Hobby Sense together with Manitoba Model Builders invites You to start building your next model masterpiece, and bring it into Hobby Sense between Sept. 1st and Nov.30th, to be safely displayed.
The public can then vote on their favorite model between Nov 1st and Dec 15th. One lucky person will then receive a $100 gift card and Certificate from Hobby Sense.
START building, Have FUN and show us your NEW masterpiece.
Our last airbrush workshop has come and gone with a modest turnout given
that we are in to the summer...? ...season, so thanks to all that came out.
Unfortunately we were unable to let all attending to get their hands on
a gun to shoot some paint as I could not get the regulator hooked up
to the new manifold I installed on the compressor. All in all, I think we covered
some good tips and techniques while showing some stuff on a actual model,
even if it was a real turd...LOL...!! More info to come about the plans
for the summer stretch either here or in a club email.
NEW CLUB DISCOUNT...!
Starting next week, Artist's Emporium will be offering a discount on products
in their store to all registered MMB members. Just show your card
at the check-out and you will receive a 10% discount.
See you at the workshops...Laurie, resident Airhead
Take pics of your shop, bench, closet, corner, wherever you get away to create your masterpiece
Try for the sharpest images you can, and send them here and we will post for all to see.
We have dropped in 5 sheets of general airbrush notes to help you
get a handle on any issues you may be having with your airbrush. These are generic problems
that can create havoc with almost any and all airbrushes out there. They are in a downloadable
format so you can copy them to your 'puter for later reference.
MMB Airbrush Maintenance Service
During the normal use of your airbrush, problems pop up that can drive you crazy...!
If you are at your wits end, you can drop off your airbrush at HobbySense and we will
give it a full ultrasonic cleaning, check all components for wear and tear, re-lube all necessary fittings,
test and ensure all components are within spec and working properly. Should the gun require
replacement parts, we will notify you of what is required so you can purchase them
from your favorite dealer. The cost for this Maintenance Service is $35.00.
Put the "fun" back in scale modeling...!
Share the talents of builders
who have tried and tested many
of the techniques used in building all manner of model genres
Meeting at Hobby Sense, Manitoba Model Builders in Winnipeg will explore all the processes of building, painting, weathering, dioramas, airbrushing and expose all those "secrets" on how to get that special build you've always wanted. MMB...the place to be...!
