Hi guys.

I am getting back into modelling after a 7 year hiatus. Problem is, I can't seem to find any Canadian one-stop hobby stores online that have a good selection of items.

Yes, there are a number of sites, but the trend seems to be more towards rc planes and drones now.

Can anyone recommend a site in Canada where I can get all(or most) of my shopping done in one stop?(kits, PE,paint,stc.)

Thanks!

In Toronto, Hornet-Hobbies, Trish and Dave, I think they are in North-York, it's 09:37am and I am waiting for a multiple order of Paint and Glue, should be delivered in the next hour.

East-Coast: in Moncton, Elm City Hobbies, Scott Millican. Does an excellent job too. Has a weekly newsletter, also a really good adviser.

&

Mid-Canada: Trackjam Models, Paul Fredenburg, specializes in only Canadians stuff. To be honest, I'm not certain where he is, in Ontario or Alberta.

Just google their names.

Toronto also has Wheels & Wings on the Danforth, worth a visit.

I believe Wheels & Wings also do mail order in some shape and form.

Track 48, a specialty online store for 1/48 armour, is also in Toronto.
