I've been a modeler (nowhere near Rocketeer's level!) since I was about 7 or 8, and still enjoy it, but my hands just don't seem to want to cooperate anymore. I can't get the teeny-tiny fiddlybits to cooperate anymore, and my hand with a brush ain't what it used to be.

Still, we have several awesome hobby stores in the St. Louis, my favorite being Mark Twain Hobby Center, in St. Charles. Models, R/C Cars and Airplanes, Model Railroad in several gauges, I love to just go there and hang out a bit. It's cramped, but brightly lit, and not a single cubic cm of wasted shelf space.

I'm particularly glad to see so many kids there, taking up the various hobbies that keep the place open!

Sorry to hear about your loss, Rocketeer. For a modeler of your caliber, it must be particularly painful.
