Spotlight Hobbies

Just found out the owner of my favourite hobby shop died.

RIP Robert Pollard, of Modelbarn Australia, after a long battle with cancer.

He had an incredible knowledge of the hobby including model trucks, and an amazing collection of kits and builtups in a model car museum he was assembling. The business was located in a shed at his farm, and always seemed to be a stop-off point for lots of car clubs on their outings.

His family has been updating their Facebook page regularly, so I'm hoping they'll carry the business on.
