    These are Australian hobby stores that deals with the most;

    1. Frontline Hobbies. Located in Newcastle, New South Wales. Frontline Hobbies (Newcastle,NSW)

    They cater for all types of modellers and hobbyists. The place is huge, as is their inventory. I use them all the time to mail order paints, glues, styrene, etc.

    2. Hobbyco. https://hobbyco.com.au/ These guys have been around for over 30 years and also have a huge range of models, paints, tools, etc.

    So if you are in the land of OZ, check them out.

    Al's Hobby Shop
    Feel like I've been there.??
    Are all the models in the "back left" (relative to entering the store in the "front right"? And is def'ly a big store - but covers lots of different hobbies?

    If this is one in the same, I appreciated the size and the variety. However, for my own personal tastes, I couldn't find many older kits that fulfilled my lust for building SS models. YMMV

    You doubt correctly.
    Such a large population and no hobby store - what does that say

    Head up to Fort Lauderdale where theres still two decent stores - Warricks Hobby and R.C. Hobby both have lots of plastic kits and full stock of Plastruct and Evergreen. Both stores are on University Drive.

    Might also try Discount Train & Hobby. This place sometimes gets in bunches of vintage kits from estate sales.

    NOTE: These are not strictly "hobby shops." There are many here in socal, probably mentioned (like Brookhurst Hobbies, in Garden Grove) . But, instead, I am including places that supply stuff that is HARD TO FIND.
    Southern California:
    In WALNUT, CA. (between LA and OC, kinda) is CARPE DIEM. They specialize in modelmaking and architectural stuff, but carry a COMPLETE LINE of Proxxon Tools from Germany. Yes, a store where you can walk in and buy a Proxxon tool and walk out with it in your hand!
    In ANAHEIM, CA. Aardvark Clay for clay and modeling supplies, McLogan's for sign, screen and vinyl supplies (like, for instance, brushed aluminum vinyl). Industrial Plastics has a "Will Call" walk in where you can buy almost ANY KIND of plastic for 4.00 a lb. Would you like a piece of acrylic 4" square by TWO INCHES THICK? I got one there. How about sheets of PVC or clear fluted polycarbonate? Will call will not always have *everything* as scrap, but wow, I got some cool stuff there!
    In STANTON CA. Pacific Sign Supply Company for LED modules for lights and corrugated plastic (for the "insider" prices!)
    In GARDEN GROVE, CA. JK Electronics is an old-school electronics supply. Awesome. Stuff like switches and power supplies, LEDs and wiring, etc.

    I'll post more as I think of them.4

    I may have not made my self super clear.
    We are looking for hobby shops that sell model kits....not looking for RC models, role-playing materials, trains, etc. This list is calling out hobby shops where one can a good supply of kits or supplies for kits (eg, paints, glues, ABS, etc).

    would be happy to add some hobby shops of that nature -- but I need you to amend your list for the appropriate stores. thx.

    Awesome thread, fellas!
    Would be great if there was a way to incorporate a drop-down box for navigation.

    Anyone know some good shops in Houston, TX?
    I haven't been out looking....yet.
