  1. Since several people seem to have let the topic drift off the original post and are just lashing out at each other, and I'm not seeing anyone actually discussing the OP, we're going into lockdown. Ironic, isn't it?
  2. My take would be an increase in the price of kits. Production would drop, less kits means cost spread across fewer kits, companies going out of business may lead to fewer distibutors, meaning less competition. I don't think 2008 led to kits getting cheaper.
  3. Drop the politics, thread stays running, simple as that.
  4. The hobby shop where I work has had one of it's busiest weeks, despite having reduced hours. Nobody was tire kicking. Lots of paint and supplies sold. We're going to be doing takeout and delivery orders going forward. I'm not getting any time off to build models.
  5. Most retail spaces here are now in the extra silly range, the mall has a lot of empty spots at this point, so the boss got a good deal. Hopefully it'll last.
  6. BC Shaver and Hobbies, after 67 years in Victoria's downtown core, has been sold to a new owner and has moved to a new, shiny location in Hillside Mall. The new owner has great plans for taking the place online and expediting more sales via the intrawebs. https://imgur.com/a/1yW08dl
  7. Nope. We're a bit behind the curve on that, we're expecting to be open in a week or so.
  8. Somebody bought ALL of the vacuforms and every a/c accessory on the second last day! We'll get more, I'm sure. *Looks in basement* yeah, pretty sure!
  9. I know what you mean. It's going to take YEARS to get that funky smell into the new carpets!😃
  10. It's east of downtown on Hillside avenue, aboot 5 km/3 miles or so. https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Hillside+Shopping+Centre/@48.4458558,-123.3352772,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x96e9085a5fd57b25!8m2!3d48.4458558!4d-123.3352772
  11. BC Shaver and Hobbies in Victoria BC Canada has been sold! It took almost a year, but the deal is done! Today is the official last day at the current location of 742 Fort Street, and mid June we'll be reopening at Hillside Mall! Alvis Hobby Shop Flunky
  12. Meanwhile, in the Great White North, the Endless Waltz takes another turn... https://www.fliegerfaust.com/canada-military-news-2636737040.html?utm_campaign=RebelMouse&socialux=facebook&share_id=4596824&utm_medium=social&utm_content=FliegerFaust&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0jTeMCC9wrgIAMlkfu2wJXEBaq12Gr-g3ZTOTKK7qgOd-Z13b3qiD1lTg
  13. The last surviving Northrop N-9M, test vehicle for the XB-35 flying wing program, crashed today into a prison yard in California. The vehicle is completely destroyed, it appears the pilot may have lost his life. https://abc7.com/historic-small-plane-crashes-at-state-prison-in-norco/5264698/ Alvis 3.1
