March News #1 - New Products and Wes Coaster

March 2, 2023

Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence


After a long week I am getting caught up in the office. Last week we were quit busy in CA and at the shop. 2 days before the trip my son broke his wrist and we spent the night in the Children's Hospital. I got home at 7:30AM and then the next day has up at 4AM for the flight. After a delay in Boston we finally arrived at 2PM in LA. Joe and I decided to head South and check out the USS Iowa. On the way back we missed our Red Eye connector and spent 13 hours in the Detroit airport! If I missed a few emails I apologize.


Today in the shop we received about 20 cartons from UPS. We have a good restock of Tamiya, Vallejo, Mr. Hobby/Gunze, tools, models and more! 6 of the cartons were from Alliance our big game distributor. We are yet to open all of them but will have it all out by tomorrow.


Tomorrow we are hosting "A Song of Ice and Fire" tournament. If there is an odd amount I will even roll some dice! We are expecting some snow tomorrow so who knows what the turnout will be.


Above is a scene from last weeks West Coaster show that we ran.

The West Coast Toy Soldier Show

The show was a hit! This past Sunday in Garden Grove, CA e had the best turnout since 2018. Over 350 attendees plus over 100 dealer tables. We also had a Bunker Hill wargame in 28mm and a group of reenactors displaying in the lobby. We had a big crowd all day long . Most dealers said they had an awesome show and had a blast. We had about 20 dealers partake in room trading. The traffic wasn’t as busy as we had hoped but we all had fun socializing. Steven Chong from San Fran and Tom Dubel from MD were a great help to me as was ‘New Hampshire” Joe. I couldn’t have pulled the show off without them. Woody (the former promoter) was also a big help. He ran the raffle and used his loud voice when needed. His niece Emily was also there and helped at the front desk. It was nice to see old and new friends. The weather was horrible, lots of rain and snow in the mountains. Joe and I were able to stop at the USS Iowa on the way down from the Airport. I was hoping to hit some sights in LA but our flight was delayed 3 hours. I think that was the only day it wasn’t raining. We took the red eye home on Sunday. Sadly missed our connection at 7AM on Delta and spent 13 hours in the Detroit Airport. Luckily I had access to the Delta Sky Lounge. What a show and what a Monday!

Now it is time to start thing about 2023

The USS IOWA BB-61 in San Pedro, CA


This ship is massive. We got to tour it and walk through for about 2 hours. Then we shipped off to Sunset Beach. Man it was cold and windy for CA!
