That is the place I frequently go and get my amoured core kits. :)
I know there is another one at Shaw Center beach Road, 2nd floor and tiong baru plaza, I think 5th floor. :think:.....I also saw one at millieum walk food court linking to harvey noman.

Back in the old days when I was doing tamiya military scale models, I used to frequent this shop in Katong Shopping Centre called 'Morgan Hobbycraft'. I think it is still on the 2nd level, you'll be able to find lots of accessories there.

I'm not sure if this website will help... but you can try.

I built the Tamiya 1/700 scale Yamamoto before. It was a combined effort with another teenage friend that time... that was back in 1987 when we were crazy with Tamiya's 1/35 military scale models. We couldn't afford the air-brush then, and every little detail was hand-painted. The paint cost S$1.60 each at that time. Line up the Yamamoto with a few other 1/700 scale battle cruisers and destroyers and you got an awesome sight! :)

But battle ships were not my fav, I was more into WW2 military vehicles and figures, the German Panzer Granadiers and the M113 variants were my favourites... those were the times...

Alas, all my precious scale models were destroyed by my then-young cousins when I was in NS :cry:

Wah Bro... looking for what Gundam??? I only know how to make the BB Gundam. Those normal one too tough for me.
All while long, I love model of GUndam and War style.

Hitman - I love WWII stuff as well.. but it seem hard to do for those military vehicles.. I got no space to do and place them when I finish it. My wife also interested in all these.. (Look like she going to pull my ear for so many hobbies. hahaha)

aryanto - Swee. thanks man! WIll check out there!

Daiso!! Idea. heee But i would't know what exactly i actually need.

By the way, how do I make the model look matt instead of glossy. How much will a cheap air brush cost. Is it easy to handle? hee

Wah!!! I better quickly go and look for a normal Gundam. BB all too small to fight with your Sword Impulse :bsmilie:

BTW, any wedsites with good graphic to show the proper ways to use the tools?

To make the model look matt, usually one spray of matt coating will do, I like my scale models to look 'real' or 'used', so I will usually use the dry-brush technique to weather the edges.

I'm not sure how much an airbrush will cost, back in the 80's, it was like S$200 for a set, that was an 'astronomical amount' for me back then, now... hehehe... no need to think ;p

It's not difficult to use the airbrush, the important part is in the mixing of the paint, must be 'just right', cannot be too diluted nor too thick.
