About Us and Our History

Sunward Hobbies: About US

Whether you’re a hardcore hobbyist, a pushy parent, or a budding builder, Sunward Hobbies wants to help. As a family owned hobby business since 2004, we understand the satisfaction of building a model kit from start to finish. Procrastinating builders-turned-collectors are welcome, too.

We started as a small operation in our home and expanded online. Our passion for model rocket kits grew, so we began selling them. As our clientele expanded, so did our product line. The online catalogue included model paints, plastic model kits, glues and epoxy, diorama accessories, books, hobby tools, airbrushing, rocketry, and crafts.

Now we operate from our storefront at 111 Miranda Ave, Toronto, serving customers online and in-store. We focus on delivering the most diverse line of hobby paints, modelling tools and un-assembled kits. If you’re gift shopping or just buying for yourself, we aim to carry something for every type of hobbyist.

Just like we shared our hobbies with you, we hope it encourages sharing your hobbies with family and friends.

Thanks for coming by.  We would love to hear any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may have. You can easily contact us.
