Title: Gunpla Supplies
Post by: Rinascitta on February 19, 2017, 04:38:00 PM
Hi all!

I wanted to ask where you guys buy your supplies for Gunpla, especially nippers. I found out that single-edged nippers were a lot better to use. Amazon doesn't seem to want to ship to Australia (for Gundam Planet/God Hand nippers) maybe due to our import laws. If there are any alternatives or ways to order through a different site/source then that'd be great!

Thanks! :)

Forget crap hands, they are a rip off. Tamiya or Mineshima do the job just as well for 1/4 the price and you can get them from any hobby store.

What Gunny said, I've had my Tamiya for years with no dramas

I'm a straight-build builder and single-edged nippers seemed to reduce stress marks a lot more.
