The Latest Hobby News

Ten days ago, we reported that Hobbico was broken up after their bankruptcy filing, and the radio control portion of Hobbico was purchased by Horizon Hobbies along with the online retail (Tower Hobbies) and related assets. A group of rocket modelers pulled together a company called Estes LLC to successfully purchase the Estes portion of Hobbico. Yesterday, one of the final portions - Revell Global, Revell AG, and Revell USA (in one bundle) was purchased by a German holding company. Revell AG will continue on!

Early this year, we also reported that Arma Hobby had discontinued production of Attack Squadron resin kits, conversions, and detail sets. It took a while, but Brengun in the Czech Republic has acquired the molds and will start releasing the former Attack Squadron products under one of their own brands. Stay tuned.

That's all for now, go build something!

Respectfully,
