Products Page (aka stuff we have)

This is the train section, it is the first row that greats you as row come in the door, so it might as well be the where we start the virtual tour.  This is where we keep trains, slot cars, railroad scenic supplies, and train sets.  We have many brands including Athearn, Atlas, Bachman, True Line, Woodland Scenics, MRC, Model Power, Life-Like, and H&D.  We stock HO scale and N scale, but can order any other scale easily.  We also carry slot cars in HO (1/87 scale) and 1/32 scale as well as sets and accessories.  Many modelers find the railway scenic supplies useful for building better and more realistic dioramas for their models.  I knew different hobbies could get along. 

Our second stop on the tour is the tire section.  Well actually it is a tire wheel and rocket section.  Lets start with tires and wheels.  We have wheels to fit just about any car or truck you can think of, and probably a few you didn't.  Plus, we have adapters to make them fit just about any car or truck you want to.  We carry all the major brands, like Pro-line, Imex, HPI Racing, GRP Racing, Axial, Hot Bodies, Venom, Nitro Shoes, Traxxas, Kyosho, Ofna Racing, and more.  There are all types to suit all tastes, from racing slicks, to track pins, to mud tires, and even paddles for the extreme drivers.  Then Comes wheels, the easiest way to "bling" out your truck.  We have many choices of wheels from stock to aftermarket custom, including REAL Bead-lock wheels.  We also carry a selection of pre-mounted tires for people that don't want to mess with gluing.  Next is the rockets, we carry Estes and Skyward Aerospace, and all the accessories you need to fly.

Third Row is affectionately known as the R/C Isle or just oooooohhhhh  LOL!! Guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again no matter what your age.  We have have HPI Racing, Traxxas, Ofna, Tamiya, Hot Bodies, Thunder Tiger, Team Associated, Jammin, Axial, Kyosho, and more. Plus, We have FULL parts support for ALL the R/C cars and truck we sell, and we also service and repair in house.  These trucks come in all sizes from 1/18th that fit in your hand up to 1/5th scale trophy trucks that are more than 3 feet long, you have too see it to believe it.  We have electric trucks, nitro trucks, and even gasoline powered trucks.  They range in speed from the tame 35km/hr up to 134km/hr for stock trucks, and faster with some modifications.  These are not your typical toy R/C cars.

These are R/C Planes and Helicopters, they are all around the tops of the rows, just waiting to be flown.  We have electric and nitro powered planes in ready to fly (RTF), almost ready to fly (ARF), and also in kit form.  Plus we have all the radio equipment and building accessories and tools you need to build them too.  We have Helicopters from the easy to fly dual rotor helicopters right up to the advanced 3D capable expert model helicopters.

Plus aftermarket accessories from Golden Horizons (GH), Axial, MIP, Robinson Racing, TGN, Outerwears, Jetpro, RPM, Integy, Jammin, Venom, Castle Creations, Novak, and many more.  We also have replacement motors for your vehicle (and rebuild kits).

This is the fourth row, the military row.  Once again, a little misleading, but it IS mostly military though.  Where to start?... okay, the armour, that covers the kits like tanks, armoured personnel carriers, half tracks, military transport trucks, figures, and diorama building sets.  Next would be helicopters (these aren't the r/c ones), some are military and some are civilian. Then comes planes, we have both military, and civilian in many scales from the tiny 1/144 to the large 1/24.  Lastly in this section we have ships. They range from small fishing boats, to large pirate ships, to aircraft carriers and battleships, and everything between.

These are the model car and truck kits, they go on almost as far as the eye can see lol, and in a whole other section too. What can I say, Al and I both started in the hobby with model cars, so they will always have a special spot with us.  We carry all the major brands like AMT/ERTL, Revell/Monogram, Lindburg, Tamiya, Testors, and many more smaller companies.  We bring in a large selection of kits to appeal to as many of our customers as we can, plus we can also special order anything we don't have in stock.  PLUS, we have been know to track down some hard to find kits from collectors from time to time too.  Come check the selection out.

Here is the BIG truck section, it is where all the truck and trailers, and firetrucks, and, dump trucks, and any construction equipment goes.  We carry all the latest releases from Italeri, AMT, Revell Germany, Lindburg, and Trumpeter.  In with the big trucks are also the Large scale car & truck kits, this means 1/16, 1/12, and 1/8 scale cars and trucks for the builders who like do build BIG!!.  Plus there is Space Kits in this section, like Star Wars, and Star Trek, and other sci-fi related kits, as well as Replica models of space stations and NASA rocket projects.

Plus we carry a good selection of Airbrushes and accessories to help you bring your paint to life.  Just around the corner from here are the paint brushes (and another paint rack).  All the knives, files, saws, and tools are just across the isle, and up at the counter is the selection of glue.  We have the old standby tube glue to the more modern CA glues and plastic welders we carry everything you need to build your kits.

Last, but not least, this is the die-cast section. We carry a selection of die-cast in 1/18 scale from companies like Shelby Collectibles, American Muscle (ERTL), Jada Toys, Welly Die-Cast, Sun Star, Foose, Highway 61, Anson, and Revell.  These make a great gift for the hard do buy for person on your list.  At the milder end of the range they come in stock replicas of production cars, and racing cars.  At the wilder end, they are slammed customs with 30 inch wheels and wild paint, or chromed out pro-street drag cars.  They come in many stages in between, plus a growing selection of movie and t.v. show cars.  Come check it out, and find something for yourself.
