Calling all Aussies
Posted by K4BeeTee on Friday, April 26, 2019 9:02 AM

Hi guys,

I'm looking to re-enter the field of modelling plastic aircraft kits which I haven't done since my mid teens. That's a long long time ago, and on a different continent to boot. I'm going to need all the necessary tools and stuff, not to mention kits :)

I currently live in Townsville, and as such my access to brick and mortar shops are somewhat limited. I prefer to support locals, but I've been wondering where do Aussies go for the best prices, widest choices, best service and so on? 

Any specific aussie shops/ online shops anyone would recommend?

Cheers

Bt

Heartily agree.

Their service even to the US is excellent...so in Oz it must be absolutely stellar!

BNA all the way...

Very quick delivery, if you order within stipulated time frames.

The warehouse is in Melbourne, somewhere.

Great range, well priced.
