Ventura Hobbies first opened in 1987, but the "roots" of the business go back to 1946 when the Atkins Family started a Hobby & Craft store in Santa Barbara California. As a young teenager, Vernon Morseman went to work for Tom Atkins, who took the young model builder under his wing and taught him the business.

Now after more than 45 years in the business, building models professionally for 35 years and having learned and worked in all facets of the Hobby Industry since the mid 1970's, Vernon has a solid, diverse knowledge of the entire industry. Vernon is the previous owner of Santa Barbara Hobbies, and Dave's  Hobby Central, and is the owner and operator of MTE Industries, (Since 1981) a manufacturing   company of a specialty tool for Safety Wire Products for Go-Karts, Motorcycles and Aviation,
created by Vernon.

At Ventura Hobbies the combined experience of the knowledgeable and helpful staff bring over 100 years of model-building expertise to the customer as well as a diverse knowledge of all facets of the hobby industry.
