Montreal, Qc, Canada - UDISCO .. largest canadian's hobby wholesaler! Huge selection, 2 floors!
Quick update on greater Pittsburgh. I haven't been to AB Charles in a couple of years, but they were a great place for scale models and related supplies. Toby Tyler's is also on my list of places to visit, I think all of the better stores are out the suburbs (where I rarely venture). I mostly do furniture and human-scale stuff, so what I need for work/art comes from raw materials shops like Curbel Plastics, Allegheny Plywood, and Noftz for sheet metal. They're very business oriented places so the prices are low but delivery is expensive, don't visit without a truck or trailer. Artist & Craftsman in Squirrel Hill usually has the paint or oddball glue I want and they have good hours and much better prices than the CMU art store in the UC. I also rely upon McMaster Carr for a lot of stuff because ground UPS shipping often arrives in 1-2 days. I suggested it to a friend who was looking for odd-sized screws, he placed an order around 3pm and it showed up the next day.
Just wondering is there anything (apart from the obvious Hobbylobby, etc) in and around Las Vegas?

I'm in Northern Italy, near Pordenone. Anyone know of any good model shops in the region?
I use to live 20 miles from it, it was a beautiful place to behold. I would drive out almost every weekend to it, best selection of any type of models I have seen anywhere in my life. Plus some of the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and always helpful. It is the only thing I miss about living in California.

Another great store in California is Monsters In Motion.
Store hours suck but you can order online as well, still it is a very fun and unique store to visit in person.
