Skyway Models
12615 Renton Ave S
Seattle WA 98178
Phone 206 772 1211

Only Models and modeling supplies. They have older and new kits. Yesterday I bought a Takom M 103A2 and the old Monogram 1/32 F3F biplane. Largest model shop I have been in in 30 years.
Prices are near MSRP but that means no shipping, and they stay in business. Worth the trip.

Yes, there is more than just these 2 isles. You will be there awhile.


Plus 1 on Skywaves -
On a trip to the Pacific Northwest a few years back I accidentally discovered this shop . Fortunate accident indeed . LOTS of old and rare kits - largely aircraft IIRC . Love a shop with kits piled floor to ceiling and they are few and far between these days .

I visited here last spring.
Great 1/35 (man scale) selection.

I know, it’s a Hobby Town, but this one is really good and has been owned by the same couple for a bunch of years. They have a large plastic kit aisle and all the supplies you could need. Highly recommended.

HobbyTown in Vegas was a good hobby shop. A lot of static plastic and supplies. It’s closed down now

Visalia Hobbies in Visalia, California has static plastic and supplies.


This is a Hobby Town,but the owner is a model guy,lots of kits, paints, weathering products, and AM. The local model club meets there on the first saturday of the month.

Probably the best hobby shop in all of Tucson, AZ. Largest stock of static scale models from all the major manufacturers; Tamiya, Dragon, Takom, Bronco, MiniArt, MasterBox, Fujimi, Hasegawa, Bandai, Meng, Ryefield, ICM, Trumpeter and more; plus a large assortment of RC cars, model trains, Legos; paints, diorama supplies, etc…

Irate this shop a solid 5 stars on selection, prices and the staff is very knowledgeable.

If you’re in Tucson, AZ, I strongly suggest giving these folks a visit.
