Charles Town, WV LHS

Recommended Posts

If you're in the Charles Town, WV area, (or going to the casino, LOL), check out the Hobbies Shop. Really nice folks with a good selection of kits at reasonable prices. They have some paints and supplies and are expanding their offerings as they can. They're worth supporting.

Thanks for the heads-up. There are a couple other hobby joints in that general area, too--Loco Joe's Hobbies in Inwood, the Rite-Aid drugstore in Inwood usually has some cool $10 Welly 1/24 diecasts, and there's a Hobby Lobby in Martinsburg.

Thank you back, Snake. I did not know about Loco Joe's. Sounds like a railroad place? I am closer to the HL in Leesburg, VA, but I may check out the M-burg one sometime. While I'm on the subject, I should mention the Hobby Hutt in Winchester, VA. Another nice little LHS.

Loco Joe's is heavy on RR but not exclusively. Maybe half. They had a very nice selection of cars, airplanes, and armor too--better than Hobby Lobby. Also Tamiya paints, AMT Parts Packs, some aftermarket wheels, Evergreen styrene, and tools and general supplies. Prices weren't horrible, either, and Joe's a nice guy. I dropped the better part of a C-note there. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area--and if you're coming up 81 in that part of the country, it's less than 10 minutes out of your way (and you can hit that Rite-Aid for the cheap Wellys on your way in or out).

Thanks, Snake. Turns out it is about a half hour from my house. I will definitely check it out sometime.

Went to Loco Joe's today. Nice guy with a good selection of kits at reasonable prices.

I thought so, too. And quite a few Tamiya paints, which I don't think anyone else in the area has now.

The Hobby Hutt in Winchester has a good selection of Tamiya paint. The Hobbies Shop has a small rack of Tamiya, a lot of Humbrol and Testors, and some Mission, Vallejo, and Spaztix.

If you are up in Michigan anytime there is a place called Great Lakes Hobby in Utica, Michigan.

If they don't have it in stock they will order it for you.

If they can't order it for you then you don't need it.
