  • Hello.

  • Yvonne s today.

  • I'm gonna talk to you about my experience at Kinta Hobby.

  • And so for this video, I just want to tell you guys a little bit about the event.

  • Just so for those of you who may be in the area and interested in going next year, you can kind of hear my thoughts now on now that I've experienced the first Major Kinta hobby event there that they pulled off and I think it was a really big success.

  • I had a really great time.

  • I know the other guests also had a really great time.

  • So I just want to show you guys a little bit about it rather than doing like a log video of like my trip.

  • I didn't take a ton of video.

  • I was kind of just there to just kind of enjoy the events, helping out with the event everything.

  • And so I wasn't taking a lot of video a lot of time, but it takes some videos, so I'll kind of lay that in here throughout this video.

  • Now that I'm just kind of talking about the event for me to get Thio, they're too quite a long time I had to take a train up from where I live here in Korea, up to Seoul on then a bus from Seoul to Inchon, where the actual airport is, then fly from Inchon to Dallas and then fly from Dallas to Santiago.

  • So it was a little bit of a trek is like 30 hours, and I've had traveling just to get to Chile on.

  • Then Once I arrived there in Santiago, they picked me up and we drove to a venue tomorrow, just not too far from there.

  • About an hour is a really beautiful city.

  • This is my first time in South America.

  • So it was really interesting just to kind of see what everything was like.

  • I'd honestly didn't really know a whole lot about Chile going into this.

  • So it was really interesting for me just to kind of go to a place that I really had no idea what it was gonna be like.

  • Eso First of all, the weather was beautiful.

  • It was nice and warm and like summertime, whether they're about drugs during the day, it would get really hot.

  • But the wind was still really cold, Like, I guess, from mountains or from the sea.

  • Either way, I guess it's between mountain and seats.

  • So the wind was still pretty cold.

  • It was nice, was refreshing even when it was super hot.

  • It was very comfortable, Whether I think so, it was nice for me because here in Korea now it's winter.

  • So it was a nice change of pace for me the first day that we were there, we went around a little bit on Dhe.

  • Then I had some free time and like the late afternoon evening to just kind of walk around.

  • So I was just walking around the area.

  • You know, tomorrow is really, uh, popular area, I think among chill as I've heard really calm or become touristy area, there was a lot of restaurants, and, uh, it was like a really nice coffee shop that I found.

  • And it was right near the beach from the venue, which is the Hotel Higgins.

  • There, in like the center of a needle mark.

  • To walk to the beach was like a 20 minute walk walk down there and saw the beach at sunset.

  • That was really nice.

  • Eso has had a really kind of relaxing, chilled out first day, Just kind of exploring around the area.

  • Just want did a lot of walking.

  • Really?

  • Um, well, the staff was kind of doing a last minute preparations for the event.

  • So just kind of like hanging out there that night, though the other guests all arrived.

  • So in total, like the guest judges and presenters, we there was four of us that were the judges for the event that we also gave our master classes throughout the event.

  • So the 1st 1 there was Pablo Albornoz.

  • Hey was from Argentina right nearby.

  • So he was the closest on also Vinnie Pompeo.

  • He was from Brazil, so he also came from there.

  • Uh, Pablo was there also like his representative of ale.

  • And Vinny was also there, representing Amol Bai.

  • Big on.

  • And then the other guest was fresh.

  • Nathan, he came from Singapore is a detailed super detail like scratch building.

  • Dire Emma modeler on dhe, other things, airplane models, things like that as well.

  • And the other two guys as well mostly aircraft.

  • And they also do think tanks and military models like that for the gumpawa.

  • Then there was me doing the gumpawa and scifi MEChA models and things like that.

  • So those were the four guests.

  • Um, next day, Saturday, after some nice breakfast there at the hotel, we're doing the last minute preparations.

  • Getting everything set up for the event in the event kicked off around 12 31 o'clock.

  • Once everything was all brought in, everyone l was coming in and checking in their models and getting older models set up on the table.

  • So in the space, we have, like the main space in the main hall there and in the center, we have the space for all the models for the contest still will be displayed.

  • And then on the outside of the room, we have the space for the vendors.

  • So they had, like, your normal vendors.

  • They had a couple of different hobby shops with some different models and supplies, paints and all that kind of stuff like this.

  • Staff from the from the shops were all there to help advise people about different products and things like that.

  • It was really cool.

  • They also had a couple more really interesting vendors as well.

  • One of the vendors was, ah, local beer vendor.

  • Just really cool, really a great idea.

  • I think so.

  • It was nice.

  • Uh, you could just get some beer right there in the event from just a local beer brewery that was cool on another one was also just a business of ah guy and his girlfriend who make these custom display cabinets.

  • They're really great.

  • I got to know them pretty well as well.

  • Just over the short time that we were there on the stuff that they make was also really cool.

  • So I should also take this time to mention that down below.

  • I'll put a bunch of links down below put links to the pages of the other guests.

  • The ones that do have pages like Suraj doesn't have a page for his modeling, But if I can try to find out just like a couple of examples of his work or something on some blood, tell me, Put down there just so you guys can see his work about Vinnie, as you know, has a page Pablo, I think maybe also just as a page.

  • I'll check.

  • I'll put their stuff and then I'll put some links to some of the vendors that we're at the event down in the video description as well.

  • You guys can check that out again.

  • Just if you're living in the area you couldn't know aboutthe shops on.

  • And then also, aside from the main hall, they also had a space outside to where there happen to be the hotel swimming pool as well.

  • But there was also ah, couple of tables set up their outside.

  • One was like a local like Transformers group.

  • I think it was, and another one was like a local group of like war reenactors.

  • So they had, like, all the different clothing outfits from different wars, like throughout history and historical copies of different weapons, things like that.

  • So they were going around with that.

  • So there was their table there, and there's a couple other tables also there.

  • We had a space as well for us, for the organizer's and the guests to display some of our models.

  • So some of the staff of the event had some of their models on display there, and I took my gun G 40 So that was kind of like the world premiere there of that because I hadn't yet shown it to you guys yet.

  • The complete A model, but I completed it just before I went there.

  • So I took that with me just to have on display there.

  • So I had that on display there at the event as well.

  • So the first thing was a lot of fun.

  • Over the course of the afternoon, we each gave our master classes.

  • Pablo, Vinnie, Suresh and I went in that order.

  • I'm just giving her classes to around about 15 people, so each for our classes.

  • That was pretty good in just a nice, small little group.

  • We could just kind of talk about what we talked about.

  • We talked about different things, of course.

  • Pablo and Vinny talked about painting, weathering techniques and things like that.

  • So rushed.

  • Talked about a scratch building.

  • I was talking about some gum pleh advice, things like that about aesthetics, complex sticks instead of net.

  • Once everything was all finally done and dusted and we finally got it over there.

  • We went for a very late to dinner before dinner.

  • Actually, they took us up Thio this space, like at the the top of this hill, like at the edge of town that we could like, see all the city so it's really nice day.

  • We all went up there, all the event staff and guests.

  • Almost.

  • Estelle is really nice, just kind of see the video, the whole city at night.

  • That was cool.

  • And then we went for dinner, which was kind of like a late dinner I had, Huh?

  • Soriano's, I think, was the name of it.

  • I had to check if that was right.

  • But just a mountain of French fries, then topped with a mountain of like barbecue pulled beef, not pulled pork was like that, but with beef and then some like fried eggs on top.

  • And so's a huge amount of food.

  • And it was like, kind of late.

  • And I was just, like, tired because it was a long, busy day, and just from the jet lag as well was the whole time.

  • Like all of us, the event staff was just working.

  • Super hard is that they were all tired and like for for us, I guess, to we're dealing with jet lag and it's like also does being tired, just working all day going around the event is chatting with people and everything, but it was some really good food We also tried some peace call us, which I wasn't really a big fan of its some kind of like Chilean cocktail, basically with the Pisco and Coke.

  • And it wasn't really for me.

  • So I think next time I go out, probably just stick with beer because there was some great Chilean beers there that had So I think that's probably I'll stick with next time.

  • Maybe no more peace call S O R P solo, anything like that.

  • But it was still cool to try, You know, this the different local drinks and stuff.

  • So that was good, eh?

  • So we had a nice late night Saturday.

  • Sunday We had to wake up super early, though, to judge all of the entries.

  • So we all were down there, Uh, between eight and 9 a.m. Not super early, I guess.

  • But between 89 a.

  • M.

  • We're all down there getting to all the judging.

  • So the judging was this done by the four of us and we split it up to the different categories.

  • So, like, for me, I judged the all the gum plus stuff and also the Star Wars on the mecha models on dhe the fantasy Minis and so like the stuff that's more towards like what I do And, like other guys, did judge other section sections of the the contest.

  • There was quite a few different categories, so there was a lot of room categories for people to enter.

  • There was a lot of model kits, and General, I was really surprised with how many model kits were.

  • There was really a good showing of a lot of stuff and a lot of really quality stuff there as well.

  • So it was nice.

  • What's really amazing about that is that this is like their first time really going at this kind of big sort of the event like this.

  • I think next year now that they've had one successful year and, like people around the area will know like, Oh, hey, that was like actually pretty successful.

  • There's a lot of people who didn't go this year because they weren't sure how the event was gonna go.

  • But now they've seen that it was a success.

  • I think next year they'll probably be easily, quite a lot more I would imagine than what they had this past year.

  • So if you didn't go this year.

  • Next year?

  • Definitely.

  • You should go and check it out.

  • Anyway, Uh, it took us a while to deal a judging because we were, you know, going at it and just doing all that aging, you know, thoroughly, properly in everything.

  • So it took us, like, three hours.

  • People were already coming into the event by the time we finished.

  • So we had to finish, like, under guard.

  • Had one of the staff members like guarding each of us.

  • Like what?

  • We're still doing the judging.

  • So that was That was good.

  • We were able to finish comfortably while we're finishing our judging.

  • So we finished all the judging.

  • Uh, we got some lunch we did on another round of master classes there.

  • For people who wanted to couldn't join me for the first day.

  • They could join second day.

  • So we did it.

  • Another round of our
