Stay away from Action Hobbies. owner i believe name of Andy is very rude to customers who wants to look around first before buying.

heard him talking to this one walk-in, non-hk, but asian customer who wanted to ask around for some parts, ...
this andy guy was really rude, asked the customer to go somewhere else.
apparently he only wants to entertain hk-people as customers.

hope this Action Hobbies shop closes soon..

Most guys in these shops seem very rude but are very helpful once you know them and they see your face coming back.
The main reason is they don't speak good English so are a bit shy..

I be never been kicked out of a shop in kwang wa for looking around.

Taking the Star Ferry to my Hong Kong hotel in the Kowloon side!




After checking-in to my hotel in the morning,
I quickly made my way to the Mongkok area by subway.





Here are maps that I found from RCTech Members
RockDragon & RevMaxx! If anyone is going to this area
of HK for the 1st time, use it! Its extremely helpful!
THANKS GUYS!!!





This Map shows the spots of my R/C shop targets!




My first Bullseye is the Waigo Hobby shop which opened early (10:30 a.m.).
Its on Tung Fong Street and very near the Yau Mae Tei subway station. Look for
Barry for any assistance. He speaks English very well and is super helpful. The shop
has a lot of Tamiya and Yokomo stuff.





Ahh...finally...the famous KWONG WA STREET! South Asia's R/C Paradise!




Since it was still a bit early (about 1 PM) most of the other shops were
still closed. Fortunately, CHIN NGAI HOBBY (GPM) was open. Owners
were very nice & they even gave me directions to Pizza Hut for lunch...
where I took my time until the other hobby shops opened!





Just after the GPM shop, I made my way to a small mall just off from
Kwong Wa St. - KING's HOBBY had some decent stuff so I made
sure to take note of their prices while I made my rounds to the other shops.





Just down from King's Hobby was RACING MODEL SHOP. It also had ok stuff.
Beside it was a vacant spot which had a hobby shop... but I guess they closed?!





No idea what the name of this shop was...but if I remember right its
prices were similar to its neighbors... though the owner was very friendly!





For Hong Kong standards MMC was a big Model/Hobby shop with a mix
of R/C, AirSoft, Plastic Models, etc. They were one of if not the the most
expensive shop for R/C stuff. Even though they had a few things that other
shops were out of, I felt they were very overpriced in comparison.





By this time I was sure the other shops on Kwong Wa St. were open. My
first stop was ACTION HOBBIES. In my research before my trip it seemed
they were one of the most competitive shops with prices and amount of items.
I had not seen any Orion packs & so I was hopping they would be available here.
Unfortunately, they were out of stock but talk about amazing timing...a shipment
was arriving that night & I was promised they would be available the next day! What a SCORE too!




Here is a picture of ACTION HOBBIES store owner Andy Lam.
He speaks English very well & has Awesome prices at his shop! Be sure
to hit them first when you go R/C Shopping in Hong Kong!




Here is a picture of On-Road Racer Dick Wong. He works with Andy at the
shop and is also very helpful if you have any questions regarding their stuff!





Across Action hobbies is TQ RACING MODEL. The store owner, Ching,
was also very cool. The shop was full and busy so I couldn't get a picture
with Ching. I scored one of my chargers here and it definitely is another must
stop for those R/C shopping for deals!





Just beside TQ Racing Model is HOBBY HOBBY. It had a few things of
interest but I notice the store owner was a bit too occupied on the phone to
answer any questions. He did smile though and was friendly but his shop only
had a few things of interest to me. Basically I was on the hunt for Electronics & Electric Off-Road parts.





Just a few stores down was WAILE MODEL CENTER. This store seemed more
geared towards helicopters and Planes as well as Nitro stuff. It had some Electronic
stuff of interest to me... primarily Lithium capable chargers. The one I was looking for was out of stock though. The store was also quite busy so I didn't have much of a chance to ask too many questions.





This shop had quite a bit of good stuff.
They had the most Off-Road parts for:
AE & JConcepts

Lung, the guy in the red shirt, seems to be one of the owners. The store
has 4 friendly & fat lazy cats lying around the shop. Prices were alright on
some items but pricey on others. I did purchase a few small items from
them though. here is a link to their online site so you can see what they
have at their shop:


http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/index.php...a63c186ac61e55




Here is one of the bigger and most complete hobby shops on the street.
HARMONY MODEL Co. has a bit of a reputation for being pricey... but
actually I found the price to be decent. I got a good discount especially
after purchasing a number of items in one shot.




Here is a pic of HARMONY'S store owner. One of his recent guests in
2007 was Gil Losi Jr.! He made sure to show me the picture he had
of them together when I was at his shop!





On my first day this shop was closed. But the day I was leaving CHALLENGER
MODEL TRADING CO.
was open... and with lots of good stuff! I got my 2nd charger here since all the other shops were out of stock. The price was quite a bit higher but averaging the two made getting both still a good deal.





Towards the end of my "tour" I visited WING JET MODEL CO. Nothing really
stood out at this shop but if you are looking for Tamiya stuff this is probably the one
stop you should make. They also sell a lot of plastic models with dioramas.




*Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the very last hobby
shop I visited... JET HOBBY on Victory Ave. (away from
the other shops & near the pet shops). The store was crammed
with stuff... mostly HPI and Hot Bodies stuff. So if you use these
brands, you got to hit up this shop!



THE END


Let review this OP again. Seriously I have bad problems with Harmony, End up spending my few K's HKD somewhere else. I don't understand why people are still thinking HK is a hobby haven.
