Internet hobbies is a fraudulent business. I ordered (3) models from them on 3/26/21, with a 2-3 day shipping per the information on their website. After a couple of weeks went by with no update on my order, I emailed them for status. They replied that my order was complete and would ship on 4/13/21. I never received the tracking number promised by them when the order left their warehouse, so I emailed them several times with no response. They finally responded on 5/4/21 stating that my order would ship the next day and I would receive a tracking number. Once again, no tracking number or confirmation was received. I emailed them back demanding a full refund, to which they replied "I have forwarded this email to my lawyer". I repeated my demand for a refund via email and the company replied "F%CK OFF". I called my bank and reported the company as a fraud. My bank refunded my money, but I am inclined to warn others about this horrible company.

You should check their BBB listing, plenty of complaints and I think I even put one there. They are worthless and threatened to sue me for stopping payment. That was two or three years ago and I've not heard anything yet.

Yeah, he's notorious. If you do a web search, you'll find many, many threads and posts, across forums, and across business rating websites, from people who have gotten burned by IH.

And here in the Herd, besides the thread Momo referenced, here's a link to a post in the thread about Squadron, in which another PA modeler and I talk about Internet Hobbies. I mentioned that I've been curious to drive up there and have a look. Apparently, the behavior pre-dates the advent of the Internet:


For online vendors, I'd stick with Sprue Bros.

Yeah, I tell people who have run-ins with IH to contact our AG's office, whether they live here in PA or not.
