So after the trip was all said and done, my hobby goodies was a pretty substantial one.
Trinkets and Treasures of a fine expedition.
From the two Models I purchased from the streets of Akihabara...
To the Shizuoka Hobby Fair 2010,
I was able to get quite a sizeable amount of stuff back to tinker and feature in the near future of the Toyconstruct blog.
One thing that I left out that requires honorable mention is the model display casings and spray cans that I bought from Daiso in Japan.
For those who don't already know, Daiso sells almost all items at 1oo Yen (1.2 USD) in Japan.
Aside from the spray cans and the plastic container, the display casings were a little more expensive but they were still very very reasonable in comparison to the Tamiya model casings that would cost 20-30 bucks. Each of these casings are big enough to store at least two ships of scale 1/700 (Destroyer or Cruiser class, NOT bigger) and they cost about 300 yen or so, which is no more than 4 USD. So you can imagine how much you save.
Wanted to get another one, but I was worried about my baggage space. Turns out it was barely enough spare baggage spare for me to bring everything back to Singapore. So do take that into account.
On a sidenote, Will be featuring the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention soon and it will be followed by heap loads of stuff from me and Joshua.
