Marty; R/C hobby on Meridian St in HSV is your best bet...the hobbytown over by university doesn't carry much plastic at all. The only swap meet In the area is the vendor section at the HSV model show last week....and the model show up in murfreesboro is usually pretty good for buying stuff...Welcome to Alabama...get used to internet shopping!!!

Marty, if you are new to Alabama and you are interested in all things model cars, you need to get a hold of Tommy May or Tim Kustom and check out their club.. They put on a great show every year.

You should still make contact though, and try to attend a show. You will be impressed by the friendly folks and the great show.
