Mark Chisholm established Bear Hobbies to provide model enthusiasts with not only kits at the very best prices but kits that he personally recommends! Mark is a true 100% scale model enthusiast (fanatic may be a better description!) well established with over 10 years writing articles for Military Modelcraft International, Abrams Squad, Mig Ammos the Weathering Magazine, Military Modelling and many more!

We handpick our suppliers and select the kits and products that are only of the best quality and most current tooling. i.e. you won’t find old (won’t fit and impossible to build kits) stocked by Bear Hobbies!

Please note we are not a walk in shop as we specialise in mail order to give you the best prices!
