Score (but sad)


Master Member
Local hobby shop is closing... it's literally within walking distance, so it really sucks. However, I got this for a song:


So many models to build with this sucka!

Great score but I agree it is a bittersweet one. It's always sad to see a local shop go under. Our local shop has been dwindling for a couple years now, so it's just a matter of time till it's gone.

Nice score! But it's always sad to see a hobby shop close, and it's happening more and more. I used to go to Grandad's Hobby Shop in Springfield right off the Beltway, great shop. He didn't close, he just moved to West VA :(

Awesome score.

Most of the shops in the SF Bay Area closed several years ago.
Now living in the Ca Central Valley the closest shop is North Modesto, about an hour and a half drive one way.
