How long has it been that WalMart discontinued it's sale of model cars and supplies?

I was rather surprised to discover that there was absolutely nothing for models at our new super store. That is just depressing.

I mean, I'm a geek and techno freak - but have such analog joys as building models gone that far out of style?

Even the isle at our local Michael's store is tiny...

Why in my day there was a whole isle dedicated to models of all kinds and an abundance of supplies!

Sigh...

Oh and this stuff has become EXPENSIVE! too! Holy Crap! 40 bucks for paints and glues? Thats more than the model cost!

Humph... things just aren't like they used to be...
