Sprue Cutters Union #11: Your Hang Outs

Modeling isn't really a social hobby on a personal level. I only know a handful (and that's being liberal) of modelers personally, that I see on a regular basis. Maybe some of you are different, and know tons of people who share your hobby and meet with on a constant basis to play "show and tell" with your latest creations, I don't know. I can only get social with most modelers by way of the computer, or by driving hundreds of miles to different conventions throughout the year.
Whether you have droves of hobby buddies, or not, one thing is certain...we love to mingle. It may be online, or in person, but we constantly love to connect with each other, and with the hobby. 

- Where do you gather? -

This could be taken lots of different ways so I'll let you have fun with it, but really my aim here is to know how involved we all are socially with the hobby. Clearly, we're all online, jocking each others blogs and pages and such. But aside from your own sites, where do you hang out? Do you have a forum of choice? Perhaps several, if you're anything like me...Do you attend a lot of shows? If so, where?

Certainly don't limit yourself to those several questions. Let us know where you go to exchange ideas and merriment with your fellow modeler!

 Remember, all it takes is a passion for this hobby and a blog to go along with it! All you have to do is write a post in response to this topic by Sunday and you can be a member of the Sprue Cutters Union. Take a look at the Sprue Cutters Union page for more detail. Once you've written your post, either email me the link or drop the link in the comment section below.
The goal is to send new readers to our sites, so don't forget to include the links to other modelers' responses when you get an opportunity.
Spread the word.
Join the Union!

    1. Indeed, but I'm curious to see your 'gaming' side of it. Your hobby is a lot more *active* than a standard scale modeler.

  4. Thanks for the continued blog-motivation, Jon. Here's my post:-

  6. Hi John, I'm sorry but I'm creating some work. My Blog "Scale Modeling My Way" will be closed as I mostly post to Martin's bench corner = http://malepo.blogspot.de/. I moved my old posts to Sprue Cutters Union to Martin's bench corner. It was just a blog too much, sorry.

    This week I will come back with some words with the new link then. Cheers Martin
