Please use a more descriptive tag! Many things are hobbies:

hobby stores

The tag has probably been used by english speakers to describe a type of shop which tends to take the name "hobby store" (even though the word "hobby" has a much wider meaning) and sells model airplanes, helicopters and cars. Perhaps more focussed on remote control ones, but they also sell static models for assembling and painting. Examples of this include the U.S brands https://www.hobbytown.com and http://www.hobbyking.com and the UK brand http://www.hobbystores.co.uk Instead of using shop=hobby for this, maybe shop=model is more specific and clearer for non-native english speakers (?)
