Best store in the city is Model Land on 26 Ave SW. They have EVERYTHING you could ever want to build.

They are ok but there's hardly any good planes in stock right now. Better bet is great hobbies in deadmonton, Tower Hobbies/horizon, balsa usa etc in the states.

Action Hobby in ogden is not bad

If you have any interest in art, artists and makers I strongly suggest you follow the #ArtAdventCalendar on twitter for the month of December. Last year over 400 hundred artists took part in a daily post of their work, this year will likely be more. It was started by @Jayispainting and artist out of Edmonton.

Itís a great way to brighten up your timeline and discover some very talented and creative people. Go check it out and follow some of your favorites

Geez I really like that. And I'm not much of a art person.

Hey! Just wanted to let people know that I am taking part in my first Artisan Market this Sunday.

It will be at the wildwood community center from 10am - 4pm.

If you’ve ever wanted to check out my work, please come on down and introduce yourself.

Not quite the same kind of making but I have my LED lightshow up and running smoothly. Good mix of technical/electrical plus the computer programing side of things. Also had to brush up on my HTML skills which are now non-existent for creating a website for song requests mortgagejordy.remotefalcon.com

Here is a video of this years show.

This isn't mine, but I want to show it off anyways.

My nine year old daughter was using her new sketchpad last night and came up with this (it's not typically what you'd expect at that age):


Spoiler!



I'm pretty sure of where the inspiration came for it, and it's going in a frame in my work room.

A real dad would have that tattooed on his neck already.

Making progress on the Giant Scale F4U Corsair, this is the most challenging kit i've worked on.

Special shout out to @surferguy for these sweet new tap handles. He also made a great one for our office keg as well. These ones are on my home taps...
