Frontline hobbies were in Newcastle last time I checked.


Are they really the only ones to do COD? Is COD that important? (I'm guessing no access to a credit card).

If not known, there are a few other on-line shops in Aus that I know of:
www.radiomodels.com.au in Perth
www.dei-rossi-hobbies.com.au in Sydney
www.auswidehobbies.com.au in Sydney (?)
www.onlinehobbies.com.au also in Sydney.

Don't know abuout quality of all of them, but Radio Models have worked well for me a couple of times.

Ciao! Oggy

Hobbyco's website isn't as good as the actual place. The website has like no pic's and no info.


I find frontlines the easiest to search and they have better prices as well.

Frontline will and can rip you big for someparts. I have been to there
shop and have shopped online. Overall - pretty average. There online
ordering system is rubbish. And there customer service (email replys
and talking to them) can vary quite alot.



No reccomendation comes from me for them.



Radio Model Supplies on the other hand - the best hobby shop I have delt with in Australia.



Then again - I haven't really used Dr. Mark 'MRC' Savage yet sooo.......

Frontline will rip you off on most things for certain...... for example....



They sell the Fusion 21 to HobbyCo and then HobbyCo sell it for around $100 less than Frontline !!



Schumacher parts can be ordered and delivered cheaper and quicker from
Schumacher themselves...... it took about 3 months to get clutch shoes
for the XTR, a mate got his from Schumacher UK cheaper and in 5 days.



HobbyCo sell their GS stock to Frontline but carry no parts for
them..... I ordered a spur gear for $12.95 and was told 1 week
eta...... I cancelled it after 5 months then found it at HobbyCo in
stock for $5.



Trust me..... only go in there for small items.



I wont say anything about knowledge and service either because I know some of the staff and wouldnt want to ruffle any feathers.

I use radio models a lot john, jules and bob are great to deal with...


Marc at mrc is fantastic order over the weekend and get it on wendsday, Service is great..


Front line (im talking schumacher parts here) must use telephone numbers for prices, metros and stanbridges are the best for these parts metros hang 90% of schumacher parts on the wall..


when buying things i generally search out the best price, Like the old saying it pays to shop around....


Ryper hobbies in perth are just starting to stock nitro stuff perry and dave are trying to tap in but they are just starting out they are stocking a lot of duratrax nitro gear......
