A 1001Hobbies exclusive: the right accessories for your models
Are models your passion? Have you been building them for twenty years? 1001Hobbies has you in mind and has gone to great lengths to provide you with related accessories for each kit: supplies (Humbrol or Tamiya paint) and tools (brushes, clips, spray guns), not to mention mini-detailing kits (Eduard) and decals to customize your work.
Our mission: to enliven the model building community
We are convinced that model building is a highly fulfilling activity: patience, precision, an artistic sense, a taste for both history and technology, model building develops all of this.
We have therefore decided to embark on a mission to develop the practice of model building. 1001Hobbies allows you to share pictures of your greatest creations and rewards the model builders who participate in the site’s enrichment. Also, we will soon be organizing model building workshops in major cities, so that hobbyists can discover - or rediscover – models in greater numbers.
1001Hobbies loves clubs!
If you’re a member or the manager of a model club, the moderator of a specialized forum on the internet, contact us: our partnership program will help you earn free gifts as well as discounts.
