Answering Gary's thread on wholesalers made me think about this.
If Australians were able buy at home at prices within cooee of the UK how significant would it be?
I read on one shop's site recently that they were the largest outside Britain. Add to that the local scene, US and to a smaller extent European the overall market would surely be quite large?
Any thoughts?

QUOTE (neil_s_wood @ 24 Sep 2007, 12:38) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>On a positive note at the last BRMA meeting we were discussing a new shop thats opened in Melbourne called Brunel models. They reckon they can match Hattons for price which is good news if they can. I haven't made it down to Cheltenham to investigate but I hope its true.

I have just looked at their site:

Not too bad at all. They are obviously trying. Full marks to them. I might drop them a line soon.

With Tom's in Sydney and the Hornbyshop in Perth I'm feeling a bit dudded as a Queenslander though!

QUOTE (Sol @ 25 Sep 2007, 16:54) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Ozwarrior, do you have a www address for Hornbyshop in Perth?

Hi Ron. These people can have some good deals but it seems to vary:
http://hornbyshop.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi
I find when you add interstate postage it can kill it a bit.

I have also heard that they are the same folk as Corgiclearancehouse on eBay but could be wrong.

BTW it was the Hornby Hobby Shop that recently made the claim that they were the largest outside the UK.
