Hobbystores in Maui

Heading for Maui for vacation in July and was wondering if there were any
Hobbystores there. Hoping for one that might carry some Japanese garage
kits.

Teresa,
I was in Maui in 2004. Between luaus and beaches, I made a quick look in the Maui yellow pages under Hobbies and could find no entries. Apparently, some people's view of paradise does not include plastic modeling.

I think if you are in Maui with you're honey and you're worried about hobby shops you may be way to into the hobby, bordering on obsession.

I do beleive that if I were in Hawaii with the lovely Mrs. Tauss I could find a few other things to see and do than another dang hobbyshop.

Kind of off topic but...
I visited Hawaii back in '87 and people warned me about the high price of gasoline. On Kauai, you really can't drive too far but I eventually needed to fill up the rental car tank. I pulled into a gas station and looked at the pump and the price was actually a little CHEAPER than my mainland gas station. I felt like I was getting a pretty good deal and my friends had no idea what they were talking about. As I was pumping the gas, it dawned on me that the price was per LITER not GALLON. With about four liters to the gallon, I now realized what people had warned me about ;^)
BTW: I didn't see a single model kit in all my travels on Kauai - and I did look. When we arrived in Honolulu, I found a combination army surplus store and hobby shop that had a few kits, but I didn't buy anything. I figured it was my honeymoon and I didn't want to start out on the wrong foot with my new wife. It must have worked - we're still married and I have still manged to amass an impressive collection of (mostlyy unbuilt) kits. ;^) I think she got tired and jealous of my involvement with "fine scale modeling" & IPMS and she recently joined a quilt club and has taken up quilting. Unfortunately, she's turned out to be a better quilter than I am a modeler.
