R/C Land Surface R/C vehicles including cars, trucks and boats are one of our most popular product segments. The speed, action and customization options appeal to all ages. The HobbyTown USA® proprietary products add consumer value and significant dealer profits to this high volume category. R/C Air The Air R/C category is comprised primarily of planes and helicopters and is available in both electric and gas powered versions. Recent advances in technology have brought the skill level down so that even a novice can have a successfully flying experience. The HobbyTown USA® proprietary R/C air products also add additional consumer and dealer value to this high volume product segment. Games The game category is wide-ranging. There are both easy-to-play traditional family board games and strategic games for the more serious hobbyist that can be enhanced with detailed miniatures and landscapes that add realism to the playing experience. The element of collectability has created a market for gaming enthusiasts to buy, sell and trade for rare and strategic game cards. Specialty Products Our specialty product category is the most diverse offering in our stores and is highly variable from one store or market to another. Traditional hobby staples such as rockets, science kits, kites, slot cars and puzzles are just a few of the specific products that comprise this broad category. This product segment can be seasonal in nature and variable to meet the local market trends. In recent years we have expanded into more mainstream and recognizable brands such as Lego®, Mattel and Hasbro to offer select products that are not generally available or an alternative to the big box retailers. Models The construction of scale models is a timeless hobby. Models create a never-ending fascination by offering a constantly expanding range of choices in subject matter, scale, medium and price. Besides the kits themselves, there are many products now available as accessories for the modeler, such as reference material, detail kits, paints, tools, decals and periodical publications. Paints, Tools & Construction Accessories Paints and tools are essential elements in that they hold many other hobbies together. This product segment reaches across all product categories to meet basic needs or complete hobby projects. These items are ideal for “after-market” or add on sales. Railroad Model railroading is one of the most popular of the model hobbies. Fascination with trains goes back many years, but interest in model railroads found a larger audience with the advent of the electric train set around the turn of the century. Long before plastic models, leisure games and radio control, there was model railroading -- a hobby still going strong.
