Default Is there any model airplane stores in Washigton DC?

Hi im in washigton DC for 3 days and im wondering if there are any hobby shops or a store where i can buy model aircraft in 1:400 scale. I know there is one in the Dulles Airport but my hotel is 10 minutes from Washigton National and i dont think i can drive 45 minutes for that. Is there any stores in the DC area? Thanks

Not much in the DC area for diecast airliners. There is Hobby Works in Fairfax VA and Rockville MD. Last time I checked about a year ago they had some dragon 1:400 airliners and a couple GJ 1/250 models. They also had some Century Wings (military). The Airplane Superstore closed thier storefront at IAD shortly after 9/11.

Greg closed the shop shortly after 9/11 and moved to the Orlando area to be closer to his aging parents and to help care for them. He only has the website. I miss being able to go to the shop.

Definately...I would sometimes waste a Saturday or Sunday driving out to Dulles and hanging out at the Airplane Superstore. Good times indeed...and too bad they're gone now.
