Hello guys I've always been interested in model building but i never really had the time to start, i recently had a job related injury and I've been spending quite a lot of time at home so i decided to start model building. Im currently building the ship and i bought the car last week. Ive been having trouble finding paint and modeling tools around here, if anyone knows a good store around here or a good website please let me know I'm very new at this. Any suggestions or comments are welcome. Thank you

Hi, Andres, and welcome, fellow Bay-Stater!

 

There are plenty of good hobby shops in eastern Massachusetts. I patronize the Spare Time Shop in Marlborough. May I also suggest The Hobby Bunker in Malden, which is within walking distance of the Malden Center Orange Line stop? 

 

Other good stores near Boston:

South Shore Hobby, Weymouth.

Harry's Hobby,, Norton

 

If you're down the Cape, Centerline Hobbies in Hyannis is also very good.

 

Also, as a member of MassCar, I'd like to invite you to our meetings on the third Wednesday located at 45 West St., Medfield. Take either Rt. 109 or Rt. 9 (depending on where you're coming from) to Rt. 27. If heading south, turn left, if north, right, onto West St. in Medfield, we're on the left in a big metal building, in the landscaping company's office. We start about 7:00.

Welcome aboard, Andres.  Great place to be ... generally very helpful people here.

 

Speaking of helpful people, and a couple in your neck of the woods, I see you've already been connected to Charlie, so you should try to hook up with Anny Smith, too.  She's from Mass also.

 

Sit back and join in!

Good to know, Jim. Thanks for the tip.
