A hobby is a regular activity that is done for pleasure, typically during one’s leisure time. Hobbies can include collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports, or pursuing other amusements. [Wikipedia]

From ParkZone about Rocke-Wulf 190A-8 and we couldn’t agree more:

“During World War II, few sights could make an Allied pilot’s blood run cold like that of a Focke-Wulf 190 headed his way. So fearsome was this fighter’s reputation that it was known to friend and foe alike as the ‘Butcher Bird.’ In the hands of Luftwaffe aces like Kurt Bühligen, it was practically invincible.

“The ParkZone® Focke-Wulf 190A-8 park flyer is a gorgeous recreation of this legendary aircraft that no warbird lover should be without. Modeled after a variant that first flew in 1944, it bears the trim scheme and markings of the airplane flown by Kurt Bühligen near the end of the war. Other scale touches include molded panel lines, a functional engine fan and a painted pilot figure as well as instrument panel, gun and cowl details. It’s equipped with a 15-size, 950Kv brushless motor that’s been paired with an E-flite® 30A Pro ESC. Powered by a high-output 3S Li-Po battery (sold separately), this combination will make everything from high-speed strafing runs to dogfights with other ParkZone warbirds an absolute blast.”




We carry all of the usual scales — N Scale, HO Scale, O Scale, G Scale — plus tracks for all gauges plus building supplies for all gauges. A huge selection of parts on hand. It’s fun to create and build!


Here’s another great Lionel train, a ready-to-run O-Gauge train set: The Polar Express. From Lionel: “Own the Polar Express train featured in both the best-selling book and the hit movie. Painstakingly designed to be true to the original, this exclusive Lionel train set features a die-cast metal Berkshire steam locomotive with a larger pilot, a headlight lens cap, and a unique whistle. Behind the locomotive and tender are two lighted coach cars and an observation car that features a rounded observation platform — just like in the movie! Silhouettes in the windows depict scenes from the movie. Four main characters are included as articulated figures with turning heads, movable arms, bendable waists, and jointed knees. They can be posed and placed on areas of the locomotive, tender, and passenger cars to replicate your favorite scenes from the movie.” [For big and little and everyone in between.]
