I would like to start this issue by saying “Thanks” to everyone who helped make our Fall Swap Meet a huge success. After starting the day with some questionable weather, Mother Nature decided to help us out after all and, although we did not always have sunny skies, at least it did not rain. The turnout was terrific and I think that everyone had a good time. I personally know of several individuals who stopped in the shop and were all smiles as they either sold their wares, or scored a great find. And Murph wielded his tongs in magical fashion as he served up hot dogs, chips, and drinks to a hungry crowd.
Now that the swap meet is over we turn our attention to the coming holidays. First up will be Halloween. We have stocked a number of O scale Halloween cars for those of you who have “spooky” layouts, or would like to create one. Below are some of the offerings we have.
Other notable new arrivals:
- Fire vehicles in HO scale
- Train sets in O, HO, and N scales
- Dromida Ominus Quadcopter (see review)
- 1/25 scale semi-trailers
- Gundam model kits
- Star Trek model kits
- R/C battery chargers from Duratrax
Visit our online store to see these great products and many more!
We are also busy working on the Big Dog Scenic Railway, the railroad line that circles the inside of the shop. For those of you who have not been in to see us for a while, we now have an O scale railroad that completely circles the shop. Murph is busy working on Mt. Westcamp (named in honor of one of our long-time customers that passed away), while Butch is building custom made bridges to span the many gaps we have.
We are also adding a lot of new inventory for the coming winter season. In addition to the metal train signs we feature on the train side of the shop, we now have metal auto and oil company signs above the modeling tools section. Take a look….
Another new product that just arrived is the Ominus quadcopter from Dromida. Colton and Butch put the quad through its paces. To read their review, click here.
