Brunel Hobbies, the shop, was opened in 2007 and grew out of Brunel Models which was established in 1999 to produce custom transfers/decals and sell, by mail order, hard to get model railway components and accessories initially focussed on British railway modellers.
In 2004 Brunel Models commenced sourcing a range of items from solder and flux to brass wire marketed under our own name. Where possible these are manufactured in Australia.
Also in 2004 a laser cutting machine was purchased and a range of products to aid the modeller have been designed and produced.
Since 1999 the product range has increased considerably with items sourced from a number of countries including the US and UK as well as Australia. This increase led to the establishment of Brunel Hobbies as the retail arm of Brunel Models.
Brunel Hobbies moved from our original shop to a much larger premises in 2008. Since then we have had to expand the retail floor space considerably due to range of stock we carry and the demands of our customers.
This year we opened an eBay shop "Brunel Hobbies Australia".
We now export hobby items to every continent including Brazil, Chile, USA, UK and Europe, Thailand and Japan amongst many other countries.!
