Question 1:500(Herpa) scale model shops in Singapore? Where?

I am just a junior collector with 4 Herpa models. Lol! A Singapore Airlines Heritage Series 1 set. I was wondering where to get good quality plane models in Singapore. Any plane model type. But prefferably, 1:500. Any shops with different aircraft or airlines? Are they cheap? Please reply..
By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SINGAPORE!!!

Yes, Anto (pureplane) is a great guy to deal with! Even though I'm from the U.S., the models still come from Singapore in excellent condition, and arrive on time!

It may be on herpa's website, but it has a list of stores that sell herpa, when I looked up Singapore, they gave me the adress and phone number to the store that sells them.

Thanks to you, Leadership! I managed to get my first Boeing 747 at the Specialist's Center in Orchard Road. It is a Tropical Megatop 747-412,
9V-SPL. It cost me $99. Have you guys seen the one bundled up together with a Qantas 747-338 Nalanji Dreaming? Do you think it is worth it? Or is the shop owner cheating me? For instance, the shopkeeper said the 1:500 Tropical Megatop is worth $300. But, later when I bought the bigger version, the shop assistant recommended the 1:500 Tropical and said it was $280. So, who is lying? .... By the way, the 1:500 planes are really fantastic, though I bought the Megatop only. I also saw a boy looking at a book and holding a JAL 747-446 model! I love the shop!! And also the 3 BIG 744's. United, Qantas and Air New Zealand. !

I LOVE MY NEW TROPICAL MEGATOP!!!!!!!!!!!!

CHEERS,
SQ_744

I started in this hobby about 2yrs ago,I learnt a lot of things from people here.So this website is a nice place for collectors,I'd say a paradise.
It's your choice to spend the money,feeling if it's worth,you get that model for yourself not others so no need to follow what others tell you to.
That shop is really damn nice,but people say that their prices are damn high.So I prefer to buy from Anto.

Yup, prices do vary widely and what matters if you feel that what you pay is value for the money you put out. But one has to be releastic, don't pay nonsence price cos you neverk know who will be making the model (again) in the near future.

Sometimes Orchard Store charges quite ex prices on models....Unless you really want the model then you do not have a choice as shops selling model planes are only a handful in Singapore unlike HongKong which is a collector's paradise!
