Model Boat kit Question.

I just recently bought my first plastic model boat kit, took me most of the day but I built it. I am definitely interested in going forward, but I don't want to stick to amazon, nor do I want to stay with small sized models. I would like to be able to buy both plastic and wood model boat kits that I have to assemble. I however have had no such luck in being able to find anything. Does anyone here know of a honest place where I could get both wood and plastic model boat kits that I have to assemble? Also can I have a place that sells big ship models as well? Any help would be much appreciated.

I build plastic models too but I mostly buy them from Amazon or Swedish hobby sites. Have you looked for a model/hobby store in your town? They would probably be able to order what you want.

It would be nice to see a photo of your finished model.

Hobby Lobby is the only thing my place has. But I will see about going to privately owned hobby stores. I don't have a way of taking a picture and posting it but in the future I would like to have an album on my profile.

Thank you, I forgot about hobby town.
