Scale Model Supplies
Scale Model Supplies is one of the largest suppliers
railroading and hobby items in the Midwest. The business has been
family-owned since 1982, when it was in
its original location at 523 Lexington Avenue, just a few blocks
from its current location. Many of our earlier customers remember
the old shop -- and how small it was!
The business grew and needed a larger location, but we didn't
want to move too far away for the sake of our loyal customers.
Now located at 458
Lexington Avenue (a
bowling alley in a former life), Scale
Model Supplies has LOTS of room and a much
larger inventory, including new hobby items, such as slot cars,
die cast items, more model kits, plus stamp and coin collecting
products, memorabilia, and even dollhouses!
Having a hobby is an increasingly popular pasttime!
If you are a hobbyist, you are one of the highly
intelligent people who find enjoyment and fulfillment in nurturing
your imagination! It's been said that hobbies can increase
eye-hand coordination, patience, and attention-to-detail -- skills
that often enhance your job and/or school performance. We think
hobbies also sharpen one's analytical skills and offer a sense
of accomplishment leading to higher levels of self-esteem. That's
why hobbies are great for kids -- and everyone, really. Having
a hobby opens the door to a lifetime of learning and enjoyment.
