Model Cars & Hobby Supplies

When it's too cold for scuba and snorkeling, dive into a whole new hobby. Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Nautilus Aquatics & Hobbies has the biggest selection of plastic model cars east of Montreal. With 150-200 cars and trucks in stock, we're sure to have the perfect model to add to your collection.


Model Vehicles

Whether you're looking for a classic car or a military vehicle, you'll find it at Nautilus Aquatics & Hobbies. We carry:

Cars • Trucks • Trains • Boats • Airplanes • Figures


Add some colour to your models with high-quality paints, lacquers, and brushes. We carry a full line of Vallejo™ water-based paints as well as lacquer sprays to protect your paint job. Vallejo offers specialty ranges for military models, but their paints are great for any type of hobby project. Drop by and we'd be happy to give you some tips on painting your plastic models.


The sky's the limit with our model rockets. We carry complete starter kits with motors from Estes™.
