I've been past the place - usefully, it's not open on the weekends...

No indication of what's inside either, as it's all a bit Festung Südauckland - probably full of R/C cars and accessories, I doubt if there's any reduced price Famos or Dragon Wagons in there...

If I get there during the week, I'll post a recce report.

Mmmmmmmm news to me Mark. I thought they were always just a importer/wholesaler and got out of retail along time ago. I know they run a R/C repair service.

Look forward to an update though.

Cheers

have priced some, and they are good prices, but you have to do home work first, I found 1 kit cheaper at lhs.
others I got good deal on,
You have to call every so often, small range, slow turn over apparently.
