I have been to this store on numerous occasions. The owner is very friendly, and while he speaks limited English, he will use his iPad to translate if he has difficulty explaining something. Not the greatest method of communication, but it does the job.ReplyDelete
There is a HUGE selection of model kits, ranging from 1:72 to even some larger scales at 1:32. There is a vast assortment of genres, from Gundam, WW2 ground forces, aircraft, ships, vehicles, etc; as well as modern military equipment.
The first time I went in there, I had zero modeling supplies. After a few trips (spaced out by paydays, mind you) I know have an entire range of paints, detailing brushes, an airbrush, and enough kits to keep me modeling well into the next few years.
I highly reccomend this store.
