Hey Guys, Just wondering who you use to buy kits, aftermarket etc etc in Canada? I have no problem buying overseas just wondering if there is a local hookup.
Cheers,
Cam

Hi ,


I really don't buy much here in Canada . I mostly use Hannants to be honest . There are few shops in the GTA where I bought the odd kit .
But the shops in Canada don't carry much when it comes to PE , Kits and supplies .

I do buy the odd kit from Magic Box Hobbies in Vancouver .

Hopefull others will chime in here ..

For armour, the best place I have found in Canada is The Barrel Store. But he is starting his pre-retirement sales, so hopefully some will fill in.

For Aircraft, while no PE, does have a lot of resin aftermarket is Ultracast.

No sure where you are, but I have a shop out east, as well as sell online.



Elm City Hobbies

While I don't carry much for aftermarket, depending on what you are looking for, I can always order it in.

As well if there is a particular kit you are looking for, I can get pretty much whatever is out there, provided it is still in production.
