Greetings from Winnipeg, Canada

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

My name is Stephen. I presently live in Winnipeg, Canada, but lived in London for a year in my early 20's in Leyton. Prior to my joining Britmodeller, I was a member of two other modelling sites: Starshipmodeler for my sci-fi builds, and Finescale for general modelling. The majority of my builds are 1/48 military aircraft (though lately I've become a bit of a Wingnuts addict) and when sourcing information I invariably found myself here. Obviously, the logical step was to become a member. I have since found Britmodeller is truly a complete modelling site and as I prefer actual modelling to reading about it, I foresee spending most of my online time here.

I have to say in my short time here, I have had a fantastic experience. You all are a wealth of information and everyone is very helpful and friendly. I did my very first group build here - a very enjoyable indoctrination to the site. I'm very much looking forward to meeting you all as I peruse and contribute to the pages here, and hope I can give something back to the site that had done so much for my experience and growth in this great hobby. I have a new blog site on modelling - imodel.blog - and I welcome you all to come and take a peek.

Cheers!

Stephen

Welcome from Northeast Alberta, the slightly charred segment. Yeah, this is a great spot. My # 1 go-to forum.

Winterpeg! I spent 4 uncomfortable years being an Air Force brat there between 1968 and 1972. Then after that I escaped to the Left Coast where I've managed to remain ever since :)

Welcome to Britmodeller; enjoy your stay.

I'm actually from Northern Ontario and at my first opportunity I'm moving to the East Coast and never looking back :)

I'm looking at retiring in Nova Scotia. I've vacationed there a couple of times and loved it. The geography is much more like my home on the shore of Lake Superior, and I love seafood :) The people in NS are fantastic - they are probably my biggest draw to that province. Love the old houses there too.

Where in the province of my birth are you heading for?

We really liked the South Shore: Hubbards or Mahone Bay. I do have some friends and acquaintances in Truro and one of them had suggested Wolfville. I think bottom line is we will see what the market will bare when the time comes. I'm always open for suggestions.

All good places. Wolfville is nice but can be a bit crowded during winter as it's full of university students going to Acadia. It's close to Windsor, where I lived nearby, before going west in 1980.

My grandparents lived in Hubbards and Mahone Bay! I've got many fond memories of endless summers spent exploring the beaches and back roads :)

Ah! Back roads. Wish we had some up here.
