As the other reviewers note, this store is hot, it could really use a good air conditioner!

I would have given it 5 stars were it not for the chaotic storage of items which means that many boxes get beaten up by being constantly knocked

Scale models used to be my hobby for a long time and I never thought i could put it aside. Oh well... Even though i don't build dioramas anymore, I still find it interesting to stop by the store to check what's new.

This store is located in a a basement on 45th street. I'm 33 and since I was a kid of 1 or so, I've made the pilgrimage to this store (or at least it's ancestors located in the same space) and have always been able to find the best selection of scale models and supplies outside of a mail order catalog. I recently visited the store after having not been there in many, many years. While they didn't have the specific model I wanted, the place is still an obvious haven for the serious scale modelling hobbyist and train hobbyist (not my bag, but I can see by the looks of the place...) Be forewarned though, it can get quite stuffy down there in the summer months.

Pros: selection, supplies, sorted by scale

Cons: hard to find, small/crowded, hot in summer

If you are looking for a hobby-related gadget, widget, thingamabob, or doohickey, it's at the Red Caboose. Your only problem will be finding it. You will soon feel at ease searching the haphazardly arranged inventory in the dingy, cramped store; that's half the fun. You can always ask one of the quirky but endearing staff, but the real fun is just browsing. There's something for every hobbyist. A kitty prowls the store; pet it at your own risk.

PROS: has everything, cute cat, friendly staff
CONS: can be pricey, close quarters
