I know most of us are inherantly able to exist long periods of isolation as long as we can keep ourselves busy with our hobby.
But we all need human contact, it's a Hoooman thing.
I've been using a lot of video conferencing for work recently due to the lockdown, this got me to thinking why not get other like minded people people in a virtual room and do some modelling.
I can't use my prefered tools as work would get a bit antsy so Zoom is the next best thing.
It's really easy to setup an account and it's free just go to
The only rules are if I have to show you fat ugly face you got to show me yours, a lot of you know me already so I can cope with that, but you got to have a camera enabled and have the video working anyone not sharing the love will get booted
We can host drop in sessions for those who just want someone to talk about modelling or anything really, try to use normal radio etiquette (no I don't mean saying over every time you finish talking, I mean mute your mic or set it so we don't hear your death rattle cough or when you feel like screeching at the kids. Nothing worse than listening to someome sniffing, coughing or belching.
The free version has a time limit of 40 minutes and can host up to a 100 people, I'll post a link if anyone is keen feel free to join, look here for the latest link.
Link will be posted here:
'Yea, Though I Fly Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I Shall Fear No Evil. For I am at 50,000 Feet and Climbing.'
Sounds like a good idea to me if there are set times on set days of the week that we can stick to. We could do this for weeks on end and show what we were working on or what new kits had arrived in our stashes. And as you mention, if someone wants advice on how to fix or carry out something, it is far easier to do this by chat than to write it all out.
