Perth, Scotland or Perth, Western Australia? If it's the latter, there are a few model shops available that sell diecast models, but not many. Last time I checked, Stanbridge's didn't sell 1:400 diecast airliners, but they do have some model kits of military aircraft if that's what you're interested in.

The other shops are:
Perth Hobby Centre: PERTH HOBBY CENTRE
City Models: City Models - MODEL RAILWAY, DOLLHOUSES, RADIO CONTROL, PLASTIC KITS specialists.
Triking Model Cars: Triking Model Cars

Neither of the above stores have a massive collection of 1:400, but there are a few available. Perth Hobby Centre is probably the best as far as the size of their 1:400 collection is concerned, City Models next, but Triking only has a handful of 1:400 models, and not many are new releases.

There is a distinct lack of good 1:400 retailers in Perth.

Stanbridges has basically nothing and what they did have was extremely overpriced. I have been to City Models (bought my Ansett A-320 from them) they had an alright range. When I am in Perth next week I will be checking out Perth Hobby shop. I used to buy my RC stuff from them.

I see your location is HongKong. To be perfectly honest you will find our prices are very high in comparison and you would have way more to choose from.

Indeed...We do cater for an international audience here.

And to the best of my knowledge there are no 1:400 stores in Perth, Scotland let alone Scotland as a whole. Plenty of model/hobby stores in the country but nothing dealing with our little hobby...
