Big Apple Hobbies was a little hobby shop in Queens, New York between 2007 and 2012. It had been my local hobby shop and I was there quite frequently.

When the previous owner decided to close it, I jumped in thinking that it would be a cinch to run a small business in Queens in addition to addition to a full-time job in Manhattan.

So after a few years even I learned that this is not a very practical proposition and I (reluctantly) closed the store.

In the future you will see a few "off-the-beaten-path" products, both kits and such produced by us, as well as tools, accessories and materials unavailable anywhere else.

For any questions please email me at (replace "website" with the name of this website).

I'm sure you've all seen website with "forums" where there are all of 3 threads and zero traffic. Unless and until traffic warrants it I will not put in an actual forum, but on the other hand, if anybody emails question(s) that I think may be interesting to others, I will post both the question and answer on this page.
