    I have been in Sydney for a week with my wife. Compared to Perth there are lots of nice shops that ladies like to go in - clothes, shoes - you name it.
    Anyway, wifey suggested I go with her to the QV building as she had seen there was a toy soldier shop on the top floor. I diddn't believe, but went anyway on the off chance.
    Sure enough: http://www.toysoldiers.com.au/ there was.

    Unfortunately, they were all king and country pre painteds - so no sale. However, they do do a good job on these things. I wonder how they do it - they all look to be in the same style. I can't see this place being there for long - so if youre interested, take a look.

    Cheers.

    That shop has been there for 20 years and I don't think its going anywhere.

    I drop in there whenever I'm in Sydney on business just to see what's new. As you say they don't sell figure kits, but its still better than getting dragged around by the "cheese and kisses" to look at shoes and handbags.

    It's one of my favourite stores in Sydney and the old bloke who runs it is a great fella.

    You just beat me too it Tony, I was going to say he's been trading for longer than I can remember.
    He used to stock Andrea and Pegaso kits and I bought a few many years ago.
    I know he dropped the kits from his range because he said they were becoming too expensive.....great place to visit anyway.

    As as I know there are no actual shops in Australia that sell figures in the form of kits. There are one or two guys that sell via mail order though. You guys in Europe and America dont know how good you have it!!!!!!
