Dude at hobby place is a bit of a gremlin but I buy all my paint there as it's just down the street from my girls work and we now get along fine and have a joke when I go in there... Would never buy a kit from him cause like said before way over priced but the guy is not all bad....

Think the turning point was when he asked me what I paint and I showed him a couple of pics of the Gouf I did..... He was like wow you spend slot of time on this

Since then he is ok to me anyway :)

Hobby place has the cheapest paint price in the city but the Gunpla price is totally overprice.  They selling non-grade 1/100 seed kits in MG or even PG price..

Animasia sometimes posts on Gundam-forum but it isn't Steve but one of his workers that posts updated stock apparently.

Went into Victorian Hobby Centre on Swanston St today.

Was pleasantly surprised!

Turns out on a Sunday a guy works there called Glen who's in charge of the Gundam section (he also got 2nd place at the recent expo with his Green Frame Astray), and he's planning to expand the Gundam section a bit more. Gundam's aren't badly priced either. We had a bit of a chat. My missus got a little bored. >_>

Oh, and Tamiya TS-cans are $11.95. They've got Alclad II's aswell.

Also went into Hobby Place on Lonsdale. Man he's a grumpy bugger. >_>

I can also recommend Vic Hobby Centre. The two times I've been in there I've had great service. Much better than Mr Grumpy McGrumpy-Arsehole in a particular store on a street that rhymes with "Tronsdale"...
