About Us

     Skyway Model Shop is for plastic model builders, by plastic model builders. While many other hobby stores have a selection of generas, we cater exclusively to the building of static, plastic model kits. We carry no RC fuel - our aisles are instead filled with model kits and more supplies and tools than probably all other hobby stores in the state of Washington combined!

     Skyway Model Shop first opened its doors the day after Thanksgiving, 1994. Emil Minerich had long been active in the Seattle area plastic modelling scene, but wanted his own chance at bringing a great hobby to the region.
