Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For anyone who ever had a craving to make a model, this is where you should have started. Bobe's is one of those forever places that remains with you. It is the quintessential store for all your model hobby needs and an unbelievably nostalgic trip back in time. l have been a car and plane constructor for more years than l want to admit, the detailed paint schemes, careful application of glue, broad swathes of silkspan and clear dope are ingrained. It all comes rushing back when you enter the shop. They virtually have everything you need to make your pursuit work. just don't think you can find it yourself in the jumble. But, not to worry, whoever is at the counter knows exactly where that Number 2 sable brush is located for that specific striping you crave. Even better, these guys enjoy the assurance that you have it

Bobe's is the largest hobby shop in the Pensacola area. If you can't find what you're looking for here, chances are, you won't find it anywhere else in Pensacola. Bobe's has a staff of hobbyists, so they know their stuff. Bobe's has very wide selection of models, paints, trains sets, and just about anything else you can think of for hobbyists. I had a problem with my train engine not running, and I took it to Bobe's. Within a few minutes, they knew exactly was wrong with it. A simple eraser for the track and wheels, and it was up and running like a champ within just a few minutes. Bobe's also has a few hobbyist groups that meet there on certain days of the week. I'd highly recommend Bobe's for all of your hobby needs.

I have done business with Mike Bobe and his crew for more than three years and I have found them to be helpful and knowledgeable about the items they sell. Their prices are generally reasonable and their operating hours should allow any model builder or war gamer a chance to visit their store at its new location in the Pensacola suburb of Ensley. They are at the intersection of Pensacola Boulevard and Nine Mile Road, behind the Regions Bank Building, with usually enough parking spaces available (except on Saturdays, when war gamers congregate to use the game tables).
If a model or tool that you need is not in their large stock, they will gladly order it for you. Their large selection of diorama materials is often visited by me for use in my prehistoric animal displays. Chances are, any plastic plant they do not have can be found at the model railroaders' store a mile north of them, beside old Palafox Street.

This place has a little something for everyone. Some of the games in here I have never seen or heard of, which is great! Price are average/moderate for a hobby store. It is definitely worth going and looking:)

They use to be on "W" street years ago, and it was a first class Hobby Shop. I believe the relocated too have
more room. I am sure that their still Number 1, in the Hobby Shop Business in Pensacola, Florida. Family owned and operated. Anyone visiting should spend some time and just see how nice and friendly these people are. God Bless. I have not been in this one only can comment on previous and that was outstanding so I would think this one is also. This when did you travel makes me have a choice, so I am fudging as not been in this one.

Bobe's has been around for a while in Pensacola. If you need anything in the hobby arena if they don't have it they can help you find it. Trains, planes, automobiles...and a few novelty items for fun. There is a lot of collector's fun toys here.

Friendly helpful staff with a great selection. It almost has too many items for the space. If you as looking for something all you have to do is ask as they know their stock. Was looking for a gift for a great nephew and they were very helpful. I would go there again.
