A Model Shop Model

#1

Post by TonyG2 »

1/24 scale from Acadamy. Now you can own your own scale model of a scale model shop. A nostalgic reminder of when you had that local hobby store that covered all your hobby needs before we had to rely on Amazon, Ebay et al

Interesting to see the Japanese ' interpretation' of a model shop! In the times there still were small model shops in Germany, they used to show some of the latest releases, yes, but the biggest space in the window(s) was occupied by built models. I remember the shopkeeper in the little town I went to school in, once have me the Revell 1/9 Kübelwagen for building it for his window - something way out of my budget back then!

Lovely! 1/24 is a popular doll house scale.
so, what scale are the built model vehicles on the shelf units?

In Yokosuka, Japan there were two hobby shops within walking distance from the base.
One was somewhat like the model but the second one was a combination store and home.

I sure miss being able to walk into a store that was totally dedicated to building models.
