As I continue my little quest of obtaining all sorts of little nick-nacks, items, stock, and materials. I've realised that I don't have anything to scratch build buildings. Where do you prefer to source these materials? Off the top of my head, I am looking for brass beams, styrene (?) and..., you know. The little wood bits. Balsa?. I'm still a little loaded on endone after a recent operation. Next month my partner and I will be building a small diarama, just to test a few methods. Have some fun. So we'll include a building or two, garden and some nice scenery. So I'll throw that up as evidence that I am working towards starting the Sydney Central Plank on my Short North layout (Coming Soon[sup]TM[/sup]) Edit: Eckersleys Newcastle - Nice and close, as well as Frontline Hobbies, and Barnes Hobbies being located nearby.
