Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence

  Happy Mid-August! The weather has been pretty mild here in Wakefield. We have finally been able to open some windows and give the air conditioners a rest. The shop has been quite busy lately and continue to bring in new stuff and restocks almost daily. We just received the new releases from Games Workshop and a pile of Gundam and Tamiya kits today. The new August releases from John Jenkins and King and Country is on the way. Most of our partners over in Hong Kong are having major supply chain issues out of China. We have seen many delays and smaller amounts of product. This is happening with so many things we sell at the moment it has been a rough Summer getting product!

    I am off to Florida this weekend to help my daughter move into her dorm at Flagler College in St. Augustine. It has been a busy Summer for me. Anyways now on to the news!


Above is a great American Civil War diorama sent in by one of our customers out in California.
