Yeah, I don't think there is a physical one in Tauranga. As mentioned, HangarOne is local (based in Bethleham), but only has a web presence - Peter might be receptive to you calling around. Best bet for stuff they might not have is Hobby Hangar and Frankton Model Shop in Hamilton - they can do overnight courier deliveries if you order in the morning. Local stuff is generally more expensive.
You used to have Foamworks there, but he closed down.
Are you aware that this year's Tauranga Auction is on this coming Sunday?

I missed the auction unfortunately , but I have had a successful maiden of the Wedgy , it's a quirky little machine but looks great in the air , very high lift wing and rate of climb and quick to level out with the keel like airframe. It lacks a little in elevator authority but it has enough ... Just !
I'm waiting on a 8x6 prop as the 10x6 was too much ... Unlimited vertical and almost ripped the tail off ! Some field repairs with CA glue and I was airborn again . I love it ! Thanks for the advice .

That's great to hear Marcus.

By the way, Tom Charlsworth passed away at the end of June, so it's really neat that you have resurrected such a unique model.

Yes it is a very unique and well made model , I'm sorry to hear of Toms passing and so glad that his Wedgy flies on . The next flight will be for Tom.
