  1. News for May 2018

    From the Czech Republic, we now carry the GreenStrawberry line of science fiction detail sets. We're still adding the new sets to the database, stay tuned! From the Ukraine, we are expecting the Foxbot line of decals which include the 'digital' Fulcrum, Flanker, and Frogfoot decals and masks in 1/48 and 1/32. These should be here in the next week. From Russia, Begemot is sending over their newest release - 1/32 USSR AF insignia type 1955 decals. From Poland, Brengun has sent over a selection of kits, details, and diorama accessories in 1/32, 1/35, and 1/48. These will be online shortly. We're fully stocked on the HobbyZone series of modules including the latest OM13 Sprue Racks which have been popular as well as the S3base adaptors which turn the S3b/s wall paint racks into vertical storage modules complete with magnets to work with the other worshop modules in the series. We carry the full range of modular workbench products, portable work surface products, paint racks, specialty tools, and other hard-to-find products. We do not play the in-stock/backorder game in our store. If you can order it on our website, we have it in stock, and all orders received before midnight will ship the following business day. Our online store is set up to ship anywhere in the United States. APO/FPO and Canadian customers, please email us at sales@hobbyzone.biz if you also wish to order (the online store isn't set up for those destinations, sorry).
  2. Decal Jig?

    When I assembled the Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190D-9, I was impressed with the engineering of the wing/fuselage join such that the model didn't need to sit in the HobbyZone USA PS01 Aircraft Jig. After painting was finished and the decal process started, that's when I ran into problems - the constant maneuvering of the model to apply decals was going to damage the landing gear. The solution? Remove one arm of the PS01 and use the remaining jig to cradle the model while I rotate it around to apply decals! No landing gear were harmed in the application of these decals!
  3. News for March 2018

    New in the store: From HobbyZone.pl, we have the new OM13 Sprue Organizer, OM14 Storage Hutch (which was previously called OM13 while it was made exclusively for HobbyZone USA), and a new adaptor to convert the S3b and S3s Paint Wall Racks into vertical paint modules atop the modular storage system (S3base). The OM14 is in stock, the OM13 and S3base will be here (hopefully) by the end of the week. From Begemot, we have the 1/72 MiG-29SMT, MiG-29 Family Pt.1, and MiG-29 Stencil decal sets as well as resupplies on the popular 1/48 Su-35S sheet. All are online now. From Arma Hobby, we have a selection of their 1/72 injection-molded kits including the Fokker E.V, PZL P.7a, and TS-11 Iskra. From Shimomura, we have the new Alec Pin Wheel chamfering tool and a resupply of the Pro-25G Hypergate Cutting Saws and the Funtec Carbide Scraper. These are here and in the store now. From ResKit, we're expecting the new 1/48 CH-53/MH-53 wheels, F-4B/N wheels, F-4C/D/E wheels, F-100 wheels, F-106 wheels, and AH-64 wheels. We're also receiving a resupply of the popular F-102 wheel sets as well. These will be here hopefully by the end of the week. We carry the full range of modular workbench products, portable work surface products, paint racks, specialty tools, and other hard-to-find products. We do not play the in-stock/backorder game in our store. If you can order it on our website, we have it in stock, and all orders received before midnight will ship the following business day.

  4. Here's a sneak peek at HobbyZone.pl's latest creation, the OM14 Sprue Organizer Module.

These are made exclusively for HobbyZone USA as are the OM13 Storage Hutch modules. We've also expanded our selection of specialty modeling tools from Japan including some new Alec scrapers that are designed for the model car modeler, and some high-end Tungsten panel line cutters.

The latest shipment from ResKit has arrived to include additional 1/48 modern French AF armaments and Bf 109 crew figures.

All of our ResKit sets have free shipping in the US. Finally, the Academy 1/35 M1A2 SEP V2 TUSK II kit has arrived in the shop. This is the ultimate version as it has the SEP Version 2 details as well as the option for applying the TUSK II supplemental armor to the sideskirts and turret. This kit is also the first with the T158 individual track links as an option to the standard 'rubber band' type tracks. We'll be receiving the new Academy 1/35 Panzer IV Ausf.H which is an all-new-tool release and looks great! For more information, visit our website at HobbyZone USA (www.hobbyzone.biz).

No word from Arma Hobby if they've had a buyer for the Attack Squadron molds, so this may be the final opportunity to buy a set. We also have the 1/48 SBD dive flaps, 1/48 BRU-57 cVER, and 1/48 GBU-54 reorder as well. Finally, we've picked up a few of the Attack Squadron kits: 1/48 Grumman F2F, 1/48 MQ-8B Firescout, and 1/72 MQ-8B and MQ-8C Firescouts.

  9. Farewell Attack Squadron Products

    We just heard from the owners of Attack Squadron, Arma Hobby, and Adalbertus figurines. They have announced that all three product lines will be shut down once they process the last orders and they will turn their attention to plastic kits. While we have one last order coming, whatever Attack Squadron details and conversions we have or that you can find elsewhere, get them now. The company has yet to sell the production rights for their resin products and who knows whether any new owner can match the casting quality of these products. Last Call!
