L.A. has a decent set of places that I was lucky to find. Burbank's House of Hobbies, Sky Jets 400 in Encino, and the Puzzle Zoo on the 3rd street Promenade. House of Hobbies (www.houseofhobbies.com) has the most well rounded collection which consists of 1/500, 1/400, 1/250, and 1/200 scale Die Cast from all the big brands and Plastic in the larger scales and a healthy collection of plastic style build your own kits. Sky Jets 400 (www.skyjets400.com) is as it suggests, primarily 1/400th scale die cast. Sky Jets 400 has the best collection if you are into 1/400 scale die cast. Puzzle Zoo has a very modest collection of 1/400 and 1/500 die cast, only stop by if you happen to be close by.
