Will once again be heading down under this fall, and thought I should ask what Brisbane has to offer in terms of hobby shops? And of course other places that could be of interest for a scale modeller.

Thankful for answers.

G'day Thomas,
Not a lot of shops here now days. But here is the list.
Hobbyrama in Stafford.
Model One in Mt Gravatt.
Purple Bear (Toy World) in Springwood
Voglar and Sons in Ipswich (need to comferm if they are still open).

Interest areas.
Caboolture air field I belive has a few war birds.
Gallipoli Barracks Enoggera. There are a couple of unit museums there. Namly 2/14 LHR QMI and 6 RAR. (call up the guard room to conferm open times).
The Queensland Museum. It has the only A7V WW1 German Tank left anywhere (and it is not in the Melbourne Museum as stated in a recent book review on the same subject).
And thats about it mate.

Cheers Jason
