Hey, I was wondering if there are any modelers up here in canada. 

Also, is there anyone from saskatchewan?

Thanks,   Mark

There are a few of us. I'm in southern Saskatchewan and the only builder in my community.

Cool! I'm in the yorkton area.

We're a fair distance apart. I live about a hundred miles south of MJ near the Montana border although I have relatives living in Esterhazy which as I recall is not that far from your location. Are you able to get kits and supplies in your area or are you like others, myself included, having to drive into Regina or Saskatoon to get what you need ? As I recall I've only been in Yorkton a couple times in my life and both were brief stops.

I mostly order online, there is a good hobby shop in winnipeg, it's called hobby sense.  Then there is redline hobby, been there a couple of times, not bad selection.

There is a good hobby shop in saskatoon I was there earlier this year, nice varied selection/full line hobby shop with railroading, rc and diecast.

I also use ebay.

Heven't been in Winnipeg in years. Redline has become iffy. The original owner sold it a couple of years back and it has slipped quite badly since then although the last couple of times I've been in he had a nice selection of preowned kits at decent prices and of course no tax.  Express Hobbies in Saskatoon is excellent with the best selection of paints I've ever seen. They carry the complete Tamiya line, spray & bottle laquers, enamels & acrylics, Alclad, Mission Models Gunze, Valejao and several other lines. Also of course an excellent selection of kits. I did the long trip up there last week to stock up on paints for the winter modelling season. As I often tell others, "if you're a modeller in a small out of the way community then you have to be your own hobby shop." Have you ever checked out the hobby shop in PA. I haven't visited it in a few years but it did have a good reputation. Did a trip to Calgary and Edmonton about three years ago and while the number of shops has decreased the quality of the remaining ones is still good. If I can I prefer to shop in he brick & mortar stores rather then online for the simple reason of helping them stay in business after all there are not that many of us who still play with plastic. Enjoying the chance to chat, although there are model clubs in both Regina and Saskatoon both had to shut down their monthly meetings because of COVID. Keep on building,
