A simple price guide and pictures of my new tools. I was at SM Megamall earlier to buy some enamel paints for panel washing my Gundams (because I really wanted to try that technique) but ended up buying a LOT MORE! Anyway, while everyone else was enjoying the last day of the Megamall 3 day sale, I was at the hobby shop purchasing additional tools for our beloved hobby!
Anyway if you want you can check out the first post I did about some of my tools – click here . It may help you if you are starting as well on this hobby.
Here are the items I bought.
Tamiya Design Knife ( I already have an exacto knife but I needed an extra one so I tried this one instead)
Plastic Scriber – for cutting plastic/acrylic boards and adding lines to Gundam Armor
Handy Craft Saw – as the name implies 🙂
Pin Vise – for drilling holes – includes 3 small sized drill bits
*there is a tamiya brand but it has no drill bit included and costs more!
Decal Tray – Trumpeter brand
*helps a lot when applying water slide decals
Erasing Shield – I will use this as guide when adding lines to armor
25 pesos average
Cutting Mat – Acura brand
Foldable Magazine File Box – made of carton
Tamiya – Regular and Extra Thin Cement + Paint Retarder
Regular cement – 120 pesos
Thin cement – 170 pesos
Retarder – 180 pesos
Sky Blue – 100 pesos
Flat Aluminum – 75 pesos
Chrome Silver – 75 pesos
Flat White – 75 pesos
Flat Base – 75 pesos
Tamiya Enamel – Dark Grey and Flat Black
75 each – for panel washing. Should be mixed with lighter fluid and surface of materials should be smooth.
Also I bought this pirated copy of Gundam 00 at St. Francis for 120 pesos 3 DVDs already. I haven’t watched the series yet. So I guess its time to know my PG Raiser that will come this July.
