A classic hobby shop now open for a decade, this place specializes in military scale models, miniature weapons, Gundam models, GK models, model cars and a variety of other similar products and modeling supplies. There are also finished plastic models for sale, making this a real heaven for its mostly-male customers. Beginner modelers can get started here by collecting cartoon/animation character models, learning how to assemble, dress, and paint them. Intermediate hobbyists may choose to focus their pursuits on themes, such as World War II tanks or other items associated with a particular period of history. Advanced customers go as far as building their models from scratch and can buy plastic boards here to create and fabricate their own designs, limited only by their imaginations. Model kits here are priced from about NT$500 to NT$30,000, with art supplies starting at NT$50.
