HOBBIES R FUN - YOUR LOCAL HOBBY STORE – JUST A CLICK AWAY!

COVID19 - The impact of the pandemic is now easing.  The deliveries of our orders is back to the new normal.  With repsect to deliveries within Australia, the days of overnight delivery are now a rarity but a delivery of 2 to 3 days is the new normal. With respect to the international deliveries, it is now a mandatory requirement that ALL overseas shipping of goods must have tracking.  This has forced us to increase our postage for international orders from $4 to $25.  This does not imporve the delivery times but does provide the security of the tracking process.

The second impact we were facing has not necessarily eased.  We are still having issues receiving our stock from overseas.  We source most of our stock from the USA and China.  A small amount is sourced in Australia but those sources are usually relient on stock from USA or China as well.  We have worked with our suppliers to try to resolve the delays and this has been partially successful.  If you do require soemthing urgently, please let us know and we can do our best to source this for you asap.  If we cannot, we will let you know.

If the item you are looking for is "Out of stock" here, check out our eBay store - HobbiesRFun4All. We may have what you are looking for listed there. We don't double up with our stock, we maintain an allocation to each site to prevent selling the same item twice - which usually ends up with someone being disappointed, including us.

 

We ask for your continued patience, for you to stay safe and look out for your neighbours. 

 

This is the website of Hobbies R Fun, an internet based retail store operating from Sunbury, Victoria, Australia. We specialise in the provision of DCC Decoders and accessories as well as other small electronics components. We also offer products for sale on eBay (look for HobbiesRFun4All) and see our great feedback score for reference.

This is a part-time business; we all have a full-time day job to attend to so I ask that our customers be patient. We do answer emails and messages - eventually. We sometimes need time to research answers and we have to fit this in between the day job and family commitments. We will answer all questions, even if it is to admit I don't know the amswer and cannot find a solution...

A key part of our service is advice - offering our hard learned knowledge with fellow modellers. We are prepared to go as far as offering our services to install decoders, both mobile and sound, for those who do not have the inclination or equipment to install their own.  We also repair locos and other rolling stock, correct installations that have not worked and generally return your equipment working better than when you sent it in.

To get more information, to ask for a current price list or to place an order, please email me at info@hobbiesrfun.com.au

 

And we have many internatonal customers from all continents...

This website is a construction zone, an unfinished layout. The bench work has been completed and most of the wiring.  We will continue to develop the scenery and structures so that we will maintain a fully functional website.  However, like all good layouts, it will always be in a state of growth.  We will change the scenery, rotate the rolling stock and may even re-align the right of way occassionally but we will retain the solid structure which will allow us to do this with ease.
