Re: Nice trader alert!
Both shops have at least a thousand kits of all types on their shelves including a huge range of ships of all brands (Vee Hobby Platinum!), there is really no need to buy off ebay for anything contemporary if you live in Adelaide.
Then there is Aeroworks, Col Light Gdns, Military Hobbies, Unley and Model World in Richmond for trade ins and collections of everything.
I've saved the details for the next time I get a chance to visit SA. Haven't been there for a few years but hopefully soon.
I can recommend Hobby Habit located at Melrose Park & Blair Athol, South Australia.
I have no association with the owners of these stores other than I was a happy first time customer today for some paint.
I kind of had a warm and fuzzy feeling entering the Melrose Park store - before entering the retail section you walk through what I can only describe as a "Hall of Fame" - glass cabinets full of completed models. Of particular note was a very large scale completed model of an RAN ARMIDALE class patrol boat.
Inside the actual store there was all of the 200 scale Trumpeter offerings.
It was a very nice experience.
