We're getting out of the cold & heading for the beach in January, but I wanted to also check out any Hobby Shops in the Tampa / St. Petersburg area as long as they had a good selection of armor kits.

 

I found Ralph's Hobbies on the shop list, but surely there must be others.

 

Can anyone help?????

There are a few in the area.

Ralph's Hobbies 5208 66th St N # D, St. Petersburg, FL 33709-3137 (727) 547-8607. ‎ Ralph's is a great place with a very model swap-kind of feel. Ralph is a super nice guy and very knowledgeable.

Phil's Hobby Shop 6050 Park Blvd # 2, Pinellas Park, FL 33781-3230 (727) 545-1251 . Another great shop with a good selection of plastic and friendly staff. 10% off all plastic.

Charlie's Discount Hobbies 7530 W Waters Ave # K, Tampa, FL 33615-1597 (813) 882-4007 ‎. Not too bad, descent selection and good supplies. The owner is a very nice, cigar-smoking fellow. Helpful and knowledgeable.

House of Hobbies 37700 US Highway 19 N, Palm Harbor, FL 34684-102 (727) 943-5800 ‎.Tremendous plastic selection, Family can be a bit stand-offish but I have no issues. Dad is very anti-Obama, Mom likes to run, her dogs and her granddaughter, and just make the Daughter laugh and your in like Flynn.

Modelers-Paradise 13355 Belcher Road S, Largo, FL 33773 (727) 388-4903 ‎. German owner, was once one of the best plastic shops around but he has really let the "shop" go. It's hard to find, no A/C and he uses the warehouse space to store his boat. Also sells firearms, knives, large-scale R/C and aquariums?

Marchets Toys & Hobbies 2605 South Florida Avenue, Lakeland, FL 33803-3860 (863) 682-4312 ‎. Kind of a hike. Fair selection, some hard to find kits and books. Owner is a nice guy.

 

We have two Hobbytowns - weak plastic selection but lots of paint. Hobbytown USA 11727 North Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, FL 33618-350 (813) 964-5447 and 2464 West Brandon Boulevard, Brandon, FL 33511-4717 (813) 655-6366‎

 

Morris Kohl Enterprises 1202 West Waters Avenue, Tampa, FL 33604-2848 (813) 931-1626 ‎. Steer clear. Crotchety owner, little plastic more R/C.

 

I think that covers the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas.
