I did a search on the internet and followed it with a search on yelp to find hobby shops in the city. I know from experience that online shopping has wiped out most such businesses and did not expect to find many. I was very excited to find Sun Entertainment because of its location close to downtown. A handful of hobby shops remain in SF and are in the neighborhoods far to travel. I honestly did check the website and saw no signs of model airplanes for sale but decided to visit anyway. The location is very easy to find and the shop is nice. It is very clean, well-lit and well-stocked. As I had expected it had no model airplanes. The owner or attendant was very busy playing with his laptop. I am not sure if acknowledged that they have no models or did not understand English well. Anyway he quickly returned to his important work (game?) on his laptop. I read the other reviews and they are good which took me there but don't think I go back even for modeling supplies which they have.
