Phi-long Hoang (Phxlxng): Nice hobby shop, honestly was surprised to find out we had one so close by, I myself am into gundams, so if you're looking for those model kits, you might not find any as their range is quite small, but if you're looking for other kits like cars and such, they got it.Though their hobby supplies range is quite vast, you're sure to find what you need.

Henryk Schneider: but plenty other kits as well as some Warhammer. Tools, paints and tables to play, build, spray booths nice slot car track. Just great all round, good vibe and awesome service.

Charlie Pelliccia: Great place for kids and us big kids to explore and check out all the models and play slot car racing.

Battlefield Hobbies: what do users think?

Nick Bob: Good business owner polite thank you

James Sargeant: Never been to this store before but by the look of things I'm going to give it five stars

Jordy Butler: Owner very helpful many model options.

Anthony Xuereb: If you're into plastic kits it's a good place to visit with two levels displaying a very good selection of military hardware from all the respected makes plus some. It's not all military and there are some impressive car models too, plus other things that I've forgotten. Lots of associated goods to assemble, prep and paint your models so it's very handy if you're a local. Prices are fairly good and saves on p&p costs and waiting for the mail. Service was fine, just one salesperson there, not sure if there are others though. Go and spend a dollar and support our local business community.
