    Hello all
    Iím looking for Hobby Shop recommendations while in the Seattle Area.
    Staying at Ramada Tukwila, Seatac Airport 15901 W Valley Hwy.
    So any suggestions that arenít too far away would be appreciated.
    Looking for Carrera stock, and 1/25 car models.
    Thanks

    Several choices in the Seattle Tacoma area! (my "home town" for over 50 years...)
    Here's a few from the OWH Raceway Directory:

    If you are interested in 1/24 scale racing, be sure to check out Pacific Slot Car Raceways,
    in Edgewood - not far from Tukwila. Host of this year's 2014 USRA Div 2 National Championships.

    Pacific Slot Car Raceways
    1/24, Drag


    2908 Meridian E - Suite 104
    Edgewood, WA 98371
    Phone: 253-446-5039

    ------------------------------------------------------

    For Carrera 1/32 scale stuff, there are a few choices of Raceways / Hobby Shops:


    Fantasy World Toys & Hobbies – NO TRACK
    1/32


    10011 Lakewood Ave SW
    Lakewood, WA 98499
    Phone: 877-318-7144
    Get Directions | Visit Website

    (Best bet for Carrera stuff)
    The track is gone - and the former retail store is now combined
    with the warehouse & mail order shop & is now open to the public.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    132 Slot Car Raceway
    1/24, 1/32


    3030 68th Ave W - Unit E
    Tacoma, WA 98466
    Phone: 253-564-1445
    Email: sales@132slotcar.us
    Get Directions | Visit Website

    (call first - not positive if still open - new raceway - same owner - opening very soon in Tacoma)

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    NEW Scale Racing Center in Tacoma is opening in Sept - but I believe they are having a PSSRA club race this week.
    Alan Smith of 132 Slot Car Raceway, Scale Racing, & Slot Car Illustrated, is the owner.

    You should definitely try to check out this place while in town.
    Not open yet - but they are still busy getting ready, and I'm sure you could stop by if you call ahead.

    More info on Facebook:

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    In Lake City - North of Seattle - is Red Devil Raceway
    1/32 scale raceway - not sure if they have Carrera, but they have most other 1/32 brands.

    Red Devil Raceway
    1/32


    10000 Lake City Way NE
    Seattle, WA 98125
    Phone: 206-729-2235
    Email: gerry@reddevilraceway.com

    -----------------------------------------------------

    While you're in the Seattle / Tacoma area - you should try to get in touch with the PSSRA local 1/32 scale club.
    They race on Wed nights at about a half dozen various 4 lane club tracks in the South Seattle / Tacoma area.
    More info on Facebook Page - (closed group - need to join group):
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/PSSRA/

    --------------------------------------------------------

    For non-slot car / plastic models of all types - you should check out Skyway Model Shop.
    HUGE inventory crammed into a small shop!!!
    (I used to live about a block away from this place for a couple years)

    Skyway Model Shop
    12615 Renton Ave S
    Seattle, WA 98178
    (206) 772-1211
    http://www.skywaymodel.com/
    --------------------------------------------------------

    In all cases - be sure to call ahead before driving - as many have limited or flexible hours.

    I hope this helps!
