I second Graves in Orlando. It's an incredible place and well worth a visit all by itself. In Miami, I frequent the Hobby Nut. There is also Crown Hobbies, but I've only been there a couple of times so I can't recommend it one way or the other. In Ft. Lauderdale, there is Warricks Custom Hobbies, now called, I believe, the "Hobby Super Store" or something of that sort. Warricks is a large shop and has all kinds of good stuff.

Cheers,
Grog

if your in hawaii, its far far far cheaper to order things on line and have them shipped rather then buying locally.

+1 for Graves Hobby in Orlando. I stopped in last week during my trip to the States.

I found as mentioned by Capngrog, and caught acommercial the other day, went into Hobbysuperstore.com open 10-8 week days. very interesting. I revisited a few times more, and can say it is a huge store. I have not yet come to my conclusion, but al ldepends on how you look at it, the Airplane department or any show All stock on shelves, and repackaged in the back for mail orders retiurns etc.

Leave your wallet at home.

Please disreguard ...........

Not necessariy true. Hobbetat on 10th street prices are pretty good as they ship in bulk.
