Hi Bob
Where abouts in Perth are you ? Been there 3 times now. I Love Perth. We stay with the family in Bedfordale when we are over.  I bet it is nice and warm there today. Looks like we are set for a bit more snow this week.
Cheers for now.

Lucy Sod!!!! I think we may get a bit more snow here today. Glostershire has been dumped on this morn and it's comming our way.  This is just a long shot. Do you make FG springer hulls ? When i was over there last April I was talking to someone on the phone my Uncle knows abour RC boats. I didn't have a chance to meet up with him while i was there. #
All the best.
Keep taking the wine it's good for you !!

Hi Martin
I didn't try finding any mbc in Perth. I did go to a BIG model shop in Perth near Bayswater car hire (Sorry not much help)
However if you contact Dale on his website he seems to know loads of clubs in OZ.  He is based in Adelaide. http://www.adelaidemodelboatcentre.com/

in the way of model shops in perth there is very slim pickings that deal in model boats they all do a few but none really specialise in it. I for one get most of my gear online as it is a LOT cheaper.

and clubs in perth there are a few but it really depends what your friend is into weather it be scale, yachts, fast electric as the main clubs over here only do either 1 or 2 types but the stanbridges website has a club list for model boats. and in August there is a woodshow which has a multi boat club display, not sure of the dates as yet
