Our mission at King’s Hobby Shop is to promote and support hobbyists. Our staff’s cumulative expertise spans over 60 years of product knowledge and project know how. Our goal is to give our customers what they need to succeed in their hobby. We want our customers to enjoy their hobbies as much as we enjoy supporting them.

Drones, quad-copters, UAVs, whatever you want to call them; King’s now has them in stock. This is a new product line for us, but I think it is clear, the new toy today will be the next big career opportunity in aviation tomorrow. Just ask the F-16 Falcon pilots of the 147th Fighter Wing. One month they are flying F-16’s, the next they have transitioned to MQ-1 Predators. The UAV is as critical to the Air Force mission today as the P-51 Mustang bomber-escort was to WWII. The civilian applications are equally limitless. Forget swarms of drones performing same-day deliveries for Amazon, real estate agents are learning drones create the best virtual tours of houses available. Drone video services are exploding in Texas. Just look at the tens of thousands of drone videos posted on You Tube. Even the Boy Scouts of America are including drone piloting in their STEM program. Yes, drones may seem like toys, but there are already some very lucrative career opportunities in the drone business. Please come by and explore them at King’s.
You asked (and asked) and King's is proud to now carry the Bandai Gundam line. We will be stocking new releases and we can take special orders.
And we are fully stocked with new Star Wars: The Force Awakens models.
