Looking for a Hobby Shop where I might find a 1/16th Petty Charger.

Try  "The Hobby Stop" at exit 77 off I-77 in Rock Hill- I would call them first 803-327-4121.  They do have a website.

John,

 

Your best bet may be a Hobby Lobby with their 40% off coupon. There are several Hobbytown USA locations, depending on where in Charlotte you will be there could be one close by.

 

The Hobby Stop in Rock Hill is about 30 minutes from the downtown area of Charlotte, haven't stopped in awhile but their plastic section has shrunk over the years. Take John's advice and call first. Use the internet to see where the Hobby Lobby and Hobbytown USA locations are and how close you may be to one.

 

The Hobbytown USA in Mooresville has a big selection but their pricing tends to be right at MSRP, which can be a shock to the system. The one in South Charlotte is more reasonable but it is not a very big store and selection is more limited. Nice people at both shops.

 

Happy Hunting!

There is also a Hobbytown USA in Monroe on Dickerson Blvd, which is off 74.  It's a bit of a drive from Charlotte, maybe like a half-hour due to traffic lights, but they do have a lot of stuff and a fairly knowledgeable staff.

Glad you were able to find the store and the kit!

 

How was their plastic selection?
