as for prices, i find the crystall mall shops comparable to online sites from the states, usually just $5 more, so if u factor in shipping it'll cost more to buy from states.

as for over seas, i have not tried yet, but big sites like hobby link japan and 1999.co is sometimes half the price of the kits here
All my kits were bought through Hobby Search/1999.co.jp. Shipping averages out to 8 dollars, and most newer kits are easily available. 15 dollars for a HG Kampfer Amazing kit that JUST released this month. Seems that it's difficult to find gundam kits in Vancouver that aren't super outdated

i haven't read the last 10 pages but... does anyone know what has happened to apollo hobbies in burnaby? i went by yesterday and it's closed and empty. there is a faded sign on the door saying they moved to richmond but no forwarding address. website is still up and (sort of) works but nothing about a storefront.

Norburn Hobbies in Burnaby would be my top choice for Planes / Heli's. Dean, the owner, is a car guy as well. Great shop.

For those of you who are looking for a scale model of the Subaru BRZ (Street Custom), Tamiya has a new kit out now.

1/24 Subaru BRZ Street-Custom

http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/12658/index.htm

New Tamiya items are in monthly release news - follow link below

http://www.tamiya.com/english/news/news1411/news0.htm


As for plane models, Zoukei Mura has released the Horton and is available through their Japan site. Not sure about their US site.

http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/produ...229horten.html


EDIT: nvm, it is available from their US site, Volks USA.

These models sell out fast. Once gone, expect to pay a lot of money when eBay becomes only option. The Shinden model I wanted sold out very quickly. I could have purchased it for just under 100 bucks. They are going for an average of 200 bucks.

Imperial Hobbies 25% off sale all week.

Magic Box is also having their Boxing Day sale. 20% off everything. Their prices aren't inflated like Imperial so about the same. I'm going to load up on Tamiya primer paint.

LED Lighting as in the strips that you can cut to length or individual LED lights.

Or, do you mean the kind where you use fibre optics........ I plan on putting lights on my USS Voyager scale model.

Buddy, you haven't seen anything yet. There are tonnes of stuff like this on the Internet. And, there are plenty of people doing amazing things and not sharing it with others - mainly because there's no time.

i was wondering if anyone here has made their own waterslide decals before?

Inkjet Decal Paper

not sure what to get. this is for automotive diecast stuff.

backstory: i bought this a few years back as a commisioned build online. it's a 1/18 motormax unmarked that was done up to be a gotham police department crown vic from the last movie of the trilogy:



but the work was not up to par, with bad paint and the custom decals are coming apart (eg. the "police" logo on the rear door)

so i'm going to suck it up and try to redo everything on my own. i want to strip off the decals and try to wetsand the paint, recreate the waterslide decals and then clear over them... at least that is the plan?

i've also never clearcoated over decals before successfully. when i used to build plastic kits i tried it once and the clear ate up the decals... not sure where i went wrong

bringing this back up from the dead again.

does anyone know of the local shop that does chrome/black chrome plating for plastic? it might have been a hydrographics business. i remember seeing them advertising their services at a model exhibition a many years back but i've since lost their business card. i was hoping a modeler here might know who i'm talking about. i think they were based in coquitlam or poco.
