Website Links.

These are links to sites that I have found helpful and interesting


Ted's Hobby Shop

Everyone starts their hobby career somwhere and for me it was Ted's. I have fond memories of riding my bicycle there to pick up a model kit or to just check out their neat storefront window display. The people that run this store are very helpful and the fact that they have been in business for almost 60 years speaks quite eloquently for itself. A lot of RC stuff and a large wall of plastic models is complimented by arts and crafts supplies.

A great place to find an interesting birthday or Christmas present for either the young or the young-at-heart.
