I concur. They set me up with everything I needed when I got back into the hobby.

I'm sad to report that King's is due to close as of Dec. 31, 2008.

Word was published in this week's shop newsletter.

Sad to see the end of a local staple. :thumbsup:

I've been going there since I could barely see over the counter, now I'm 42.

Man, that's sad to here. Always liked to stop by there whenever I was in the

Austin area. Always ended up buying stuff from them when they had a vendor

table at ModelFiesta.

What was their reason for closing it down?

:thumbsup:

Just a quick shout-out to distribute the word... Kings has picked up a massive second-hand collection of 1/48th scale aircraft kits.

Full spectrum of stuff from WWI to jets; Testors and Monogram classics to top-flite Japanese manufacturers.

If you're anywhere in the area, or on your way to/from this weekend's Modelfiesta in SA, be sure to drop in!

Got to spend some time at Kings hobby today. I always swing by when I'm in Austin and get my fix. I really wish there was a store like this in Dallas. Awesome place!

I just wanted add how amazing this place is. I have had nothing but the best amount of experience dealing with all the staff here. Yesterday I was giddy as a school girl as I picked up two Monogram 1/48 AV-8B’s on consignment for less than $20!
