I've been going to the Hobby Place for around 25 years - I grew up around 2
miles from the place. They just started carrying import models again this
year. Their big money making business is RC cars, which is how they can
keep the prices of their models cheap. They have an excellent selection of
tools & airbrushes. They've got the recent kits - they had a MG Dom a
couple of weeks ago for around $60. The 1/144 Wing Gundam kits have been
selling really well there lately. They have always had great selection of
Tamiya and Hasegawa military and auto kits, but just got into anime again
