I like small things and in my experience, small in many cases is proven to be better and effective then something big. This time I will talk to you about something small- this is a small Hobby shop from the small city Sedlcany and this hobby shop proves to be much more valuable then any others. Let’s talk about Hobbycentrum from the Czech Republic.
This is a small hobby shop in a small place, just half hour drive from Prague. Owner of the Hobbycentrum is Mr. Lubos Vinar, a great gentleman and passionate modeler. Work time is from 8 to 17 except for weekends. Inside are many things that you need; tools, materials, kits. Mr. Lubos is mostly focused on kit products from Czech but there are also kits from Japan as well as Europe. You can find here the full range of Tamiya products as well as some specifics. I came upon Hobbycentrum a few years ago when I was looking for some specific products and was not able to find manufacturers web site but I found the web site of this hobby shop and got it from here. After that all my orders are placed from this shop. There is no problem if something is not available since Mr. Lubos will get it for you in the shortest possible time and deliver fast.
Hobbycentrum has customers in the place where it is situated but most customers are not from Sedlcany so mail delivery is main work way. Sending is arranged overnight, after receiving order, parcel is sent the next morning and sometimes even in same day. Customers are from many European countries but also from America continent.
The range of products are constantly updated and among them are the decals designed and printed by this hobby shop, brand name APC decals (we have review some of them here). In this moment some new are released and they will be reviewed soon. What is interesting to note is that shop also offers a wide range of Alclad II products and everyone who has tried it, know their great performance in natural metal finishes. It is good also to note great range of Marabu and Kora products, who have work with, know what I am talking about.
Hobbycentrum is definitely the holder of trophy of excellence for their great work, serviceability, fast and adequate response to customers and I hope they will keep on this good work for many decades to come. You can find their web site here and if you don’t see something you need, just contact owner!!
My special thanks to Mr. Lubos Vinar for his time and attention during my visit to his small shop!
