Very sad indeed. As a regular customer of Great Hobbies, I just received an email from them concerning Hobbico. Both JR and Hobbico are very important to our hobby as virtually all of us have products from one or both of them. . Hobbico is not just Hobbico products but also Great Planes, Top Flite, Dromida, and many others. Neither JR or Hobbico are out of business yet but both are in serious difficulty.
