BC Hobbies Build Nights

Build, Meet, Learn!

Have you been looking to meet other local hobbyists that share your interest in plastic models? Do you want to learn new skills and techniques, or get a little help with a tricky project? Or do you want to go digging in our community parts bin for just the right pieces to customize your creation?

We are thrilled to announce that we will soon be hosting our first Build Night at BC Hobbies! This free event is open for plastic modelers of all skill levels, ages 10 and up, and is open from 5:30PM to 8:30PM on the last Wednesday of every month. Please review the rules & guidelines below prior to attending a BC Hobbies Build Night.

Connect With Your Hobby Community

Have a backlog of Gunpla, armour, aircraft or other plastic models? BC Hobbies Build Nights are a fun opportunity to enjoy building with others!

Hobbies don't have to be solitary all the time - it's lots of fun to build with a friend, or meet new ones who are into the same things as you!

If you're wanting to level up your hobby skills, you can ask a facilitator or other experienced modeller for guidance. Sharing our skills makes us better!

Rules & Guidelines

Respect Others
Maintain an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere by refraining from divisive topics and opinions.

Constructive Criticism
Please do not offer critique or commentary on another hobbyist’s project unless asked, and keep it constructive and supportive.

Accompanied Minors
Participants under 13 must have a parent or guardian present throughout the event.

Mindful Conduct
Given the potential presence of children, please refrain from inappropriate language or behavior.

Photography Etiquette
Obtain permission before taking photos of participants or their projects. BC Hobbies may take photos for event documentation.

Rules About Tools
You must bring your own kits, tools, and water-based acrylic paints. Avoid spray cans, airbrushes, and solvent-based paints for ventilation reasons. Younger modelers must be supervised by an adult when using sharp tools like hobby knives.

Parts Bin Usage and Contributions
The parts bin is a free community resource, and is meant to be shared by all attendees. Please don’t take more than is fair. Any contributions of old kits and leftover parts are gratefully accepted!

Facilitator Assistance
Our facilitators are here to help and give advice, but we can't build your model for you.


But where's this event space we hear you ask?

Just take a gander at this very detailed and professionally made map put together by our crack team of designers. Bring your kit to our event space around the corner in The Body Shops's old store space on the last Wednesday of every month and build to your heart's content! We can’t wait to see you there!
