I grabbed a few paints. Not much was left but they still had Vallejo and Testors.

Sad to say John there's only 2 left in the MKE area (that I know of)
Model Empire in West Allis, 70th? & Greenfield. Not much armor and mostly Tamiya kits. A few more planes but lots of cars & truck kits.
Happy Hobby on 78th & Burleigh, lots of older kits with few new kits added. Wide variety but pricey. Aircraft seems to be his niche.
Neither place is the type of store you'd want to hang out in, IMHO
I did stop at Hobbytown for their sale. At 20% off the kits still seemed overpriced. Not that I need anymore kits and I'm trying to slash the stash at this time. Did score some Xuron cutters for $21. How did I ever live without them And a bunch of Vallejo paint as the 2 shops mentioned above don't carry them.

Are there any model shops left in the SE area now besides Michaels and Hobby Lobby for modellers to mingle?

Darned shame that another shop is closing. I guess I'll head up that way tomorrow and hit Cabelas too.

I'll probably go back as well, some more paint I want to get. I think I'll pick up a kit also, it'd be nice to have one that's not 15+ years old.

Was there yesterday to pick up paints. Going back to see what kits are still available and of course get some more paints and accessories.

FYI In case anyone didn't know, the Hobbytown USA in Germantown on County Line Rd is closing. I was in there and stocked up on primer and other consumables. There are a lot of kits left of their inventory and the paint selection is pretty full. Discount was 20%. So not total blow-out pricing but not horrible.

I have many (couple dozen) WW2 tank models, 1/35th scale, to sell. My mom is moving and I have them in her basement and no where to go with them. Built them back when I was teenager. Big collection, don't want them going into the trash.

I've uploaded some examples. PM me if you have any interest. I'm in the Milwaukee area.

Also some aircraft.
