Hey guys,

Anyone here in CS modellers too? I'm coming back to S'pore for good and I'd like to know where is a good place to buy Tamiya Airbrushes to replace my broken Gunze Sangyo one. Any places that stock up on 1:35 Military models and 1:24 Racing Cars in S'pore besides in the shopping centres?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers,
Nick

- Specialist Centre along Orchard Road, 3rd floor behind John Little, a little shop called The Orchard Store.

- Centre Point, 3rd floor (i think), enter the alley towards Royal Sporting House. (i think TV mobile or Osim is the first shop of the alley way.)

- Far East mall, directly above KFC or BK. you can see the shop from street level, it's on the 1st floor.

- Katong Shopping Centre (good for the really old stuff) 2nd or 3rd floor, i forget. as you enter the building from the front, take the escalator up on the left wing. once you alight keep heading left.

- I think there's one in Suntec City as well. if you know where those "ball prize" machines are, there's a model shop close by.

these are the shops i know of. hope it helps.

also:
- one shop at Sunshine Plaza in Prinsep Link, ground floor, they sell models and tools, airbrush, I always see busy people inside the shop working on models.
- three shops at North Bridge Road 150, two in the basement and one at the ground floor, they sell models and remote control equipment

hey, why don't you get 'serious' airbrush ?
Not that Tamiya or Gunze is 'toy' , but I prefer to use Badger airbrush (the same reason why some people want high-end camera ;) ), and use 1/4 or 1/5 PK (horse power) refrigerator compressor.
Not very practical I admit, but it gives you POWER !!! *evil laugh*
Also good for cleaning camera and lens too .. (as long as you remember to remove the paint and thinner first..)

Fwah... I dun really need so much power leh... Haha... lol... I have tried the Badgers before but I don't know why I don't seem to like them that much... *Shrugs* The ones that I really like are the Tamiya and Gunze ones, actually the OEM is Iwata (I can't spell their name). Besides I only need about 30 psi on my compressor to paint my models, not blow them away... hehe... :bsmilie:
