Do you remember the first time you watched with delight as a miniature train zoomed around the tracks of a tiny town? The hours spent in wonder and amazement at the diminutive beauty of a dollhouse? Or the pride you felt when you finished building your very first model car, airplane, tank or battleship?
Well, rediscover your passion at Pastime Hobbies & Miniatures located in Bayonne, NJ 07002. We are currently working out of our home and no longer have a brick and mortar store.

Hobby Paints, Supplies and Adhesives
Glue (adhesive) is one of the most important items in any hobby and crafter’s toolbox. It is used for a wide range of projects from card making to “Do It Yourself”. Selecting the right glue for the project you have in mind can go a long way to ensuring a durable and successful result.
In general the most versatile adhesive is white glue and is available in a wide range of sizes and can be used for a whole range of different surfaces. White glue is used on paper , cards, fabrics (non-washable), wood, plaster and much more. It is of a milky consistency, but dries clear. A mixture of 50% white glue and 50% of water makes a great sealant for paper-mache, plaster and other absorbent surfaces.The following glues are used by hobbyists and crafters: White (School) glue sometimes known as Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), Carpenters (Wood) glue sometimes known as Aliphatic glue, CA or Super-glue sometimes known as Cyanacrylate, Epoxy Gorilla glue sometimes known as Polyurethane glue, Contact Cement and Plastic Airplane Model Cement (Testors glue).
All of the paints that we carry are either Acrylic, Lacquer or enamel based hobby paints.
The paints come either in bottle form or in a spray can. There are several bottle sizes available – 1/4oz, 1/2oz, and 1/3oz (100ml.). The spray paints come in 3oz. spray cans.
