A visit to HQ Hobbies

I’m currently in Milford, Connecticut accompanying my daughter to a competition and I found a hobby shop! HQ Hobbies is a 21 year old shop run by Randy and his assistant Pumpkin.

As usual with an American shop there are a lot of AMT/Monogram car kits. But the shop also carries some reasonably priced Eduard kits. There’s also a whole Gunpla section which is surprising considering Milford is a small American town.

Of the more interesting stuff here is a whole wall of Verlinden products although they are mostly for the armor genre.

This is Pumpkin the shop assistant. She is also a medical assistant dog and has saved Randy twice already!

Due to luggage space I didn’t buy any of the 1/48 Eduard kits but I did get away with a 1/72 one. The highlight of the haul though, is the Flex-I-File Compass Cutter.
