First thing I'd recommend you do, is get a 3rd edition rule book. The game has changed enough that you'll find it a bit refreshing but not so foreign it's a new game to learn.
Next, decide the period you want to play, be it early, mid or late war.
For models you are on the right track. Plastic soldier company makes some awesome models and for about $1 more per tank than Zvedza they are totally worth it. Battlefront is still the best but it can get pricey if you are doing a lot of tanks/vehicles.
You mentioned tournaments also and I can say we have a pretty good tourney scene. There are two tournaments in Petawawa a year (one was last month) and our gaming group 'Dice Devils' plan to run at least two tourneys a year as well with our first one either very close to sold out or completely full by now (it's in early July). CanGames is also running a tourney this year at the convention, so that could be worth checking out.
Mind you our tournament scene is still growing as we continue to grow the Flames of War community in Ottawa and surrounding areas.
Finally, I know you are out of town, but if you'd like to play a few games with either your own models or a borrowed army, we can usually arrange a few people to do demo games in Ottawa.
Welcome back comrade, we've been expecting you
