Im looking for a good aviation model shop in the South Florida area, the closer to FLL, the better...one with a vast and expansive selection of all types of models (not the glue togethers, but like Herpas and Woosters etc.)...can anyone offer some suggestions?

There are two that I can think of.
"Warwick Hobby" is in the Plaza on the SW corner of Peters Rd and University Blvd. The have RC, Snap, Glue, And some 1:400 and 1:500. There prices are outrages, The cheapest 1:400 is a AirBerlin 737 for 19.95 and somewhere around 32.00 for a 747/777. It seems like they don't know how to price them because I have gotten some VERY rare Dragon Wings and Herpas for there standard prices. (Some nice BA Tails)
The place I shop the most is "R.C. Hobby" it is at the SE corner of McNab Rd and University Blvd. There prices are great! There so good I sometimes can buy 2 planes with the money I put aside. (1:400) There Plastic model (glue)selection is very large. You can find anything from 1:300 KLM 747-200 to a 1:144 B-52G. They also have a lot of the new 1:200 Herpas and 1:75 Dragon Wing "Fighters"
The bad thing is it's not to close to FLL, it's closer to FXE.

I don't know what your looking for so.....
Warwick is about even in numbers of models (Glue) with R.C. But I find that R.C. carrys the better brands. Warwick has mostly Revel and other Mid-quality stuff.
R.C. Hobby beats Warwick hands down. Warwick only has about 50 Diecast and most are 1:500 and alot are doubles even triples. R.C. has a much larger selection of 1:400, 1:500, 1:200, and 1:75 (Fighters)
On a whole, Both shops are pretty even for the most part. R.C. just seems better for Aviation stuff. Not counting R.C. Aircraft
