Exclamation 1:500 Models Retailers? [Vancouver]

I live in Vancouver, B.C. (Canada). I'm wondering if anyone knows of any retailers selling model planes in the region. Particularly, 1:500 Herpa but any other 1:500 models, or even other types are still of some interest.

So far the only place of that I know of is Aviation World, out by YVR. And while I really like the store, I just need greater selection. So does anyone know of any other stores in Vancouver or the Greater Vancouver area?

Also, are there any good websites that ship internationally (or at least, to Canada) and have good, new stock as well as fair prices? Other than eBay.

I'm a little knew to this. I've only been collecting model planes for about a year (though I'm already up to about 50 of them).

Thanks, and I apologize if this is the incorrect forum for this thread.

American retailers could be of interest to you depending on the models you want.

AirlineMuseum.com is mostly herpa 1/500

Jetwaymodels.com is also mostly herpa and aero500

Diecastairplane.com has herpa and inflight500 as does justplanefun.net
