    Hey Japes, out of interest, where did you get your BenchVent? I got the plastic Exagon variant in 2013, with exhorbitant shipping costs from the UK, after the Aus distributor quoted me preposterous prices for a proper Benchvent (like $1600 for an entry level unit).

    I got my BV300S-D from GraphicAir on sale, ended up costing me about $500 delivered. They're AUD$449.65 currently and they'll tag it as a gift for customs to avoid the new GST rubbish.

    They've finished the series now but there's a pretty good selection of both armour and aircraft.

    This is a bit different, but I'll be streaming my entire current build on twitch to celebrate getting decent internet.

    It's a Trumpeter 1/35 KV-220 so it's a little bit different and very familiar to anyone that plays War Thunder at least.

    Looking to stream from about 8-11pm AEDST most nights. Day 1 is done with majority of the running gear and wheels completed. Not expecting any viewership, more just a fun thing to do on the side and a motivation tool.

    25 hour build from timestamps, really fun build for $35 and a pretty solid kit. Everything fit well, few minor issues like tow cables being super flimsy to put together and the metal barrel is rubbish so just used the slide-moulded plastic inclusion, but other than that it was great.

    Yeah apparently Australian twitch viewers can struggle viewing 6k bitrate even with 100/40, I've dropped it down to 3000 and haven't had any issues.

    Any Queenslanders going to the IPMS May meet with the Buy/Swap? I've never been to one and kinda keen.
