Thanks for your input guys.
I will try to get to Imperial Hobbies as it is not far from where I am staying.
Only have a few hours otherwise I would check them all out.

Also if you like allied tanks, there's a Sherman and a Ram tank outside the BCR drill hall, downtown on Beatty Street

Yep there are a couple of really good ones. Magic Box Hobbies is owned by a wonderful couple. Large discount table, 10% discount on your next purchase cards, floor to ceiling models in all scales and genres. Also a big RC section and club, railroad, diecast and Gundam . http://www.magicboxhobbies.net/


The second store is Imperial Hobbies in Richmond. A big selection of models and collectibles, comics and RPG. On weekends be prepared for large crowds of RPG nerds!

There is also Cameo hobbies in Maple Ridge who stock a large selection of used kits. Good luck!
