My haul of the day @ Orbe Station
If you are staying in the West side of Singapore and find it a hassle to travel to town for Gunpla, you might consider paying a visit to Orbe Station located @ 131 Jurong Gateway Road #04-259 Singapore 600131. This is a hobby shop you would unlikely discover by chance so for a clearer landmark, try looking at the 4-storey-HDB flat opposite Jurong East MRT station, beside J Cube and directly above HSBC bank. By recommendation of Gunpla friends, I paid my first visit and it sure was a pleasure one. There, I was approached my the shop owner, Simon, who warmly engaged conversation of how I managed to find the shop as well as the grade of Gunpla I normally go for.
The shop owner has good knowledge of Gunpla and unbiased to Gunpla builders of any level, in a way provided a settling and comfortable environment. Not only so, the store is well-stocked and neatly arranged. In addition, there are some really cool built model kits nicely display under UV lightings. I kind like the customised Zeon Girl carrying gatling gun. Those effect parts from Valvrave kits drawn much attention under UV lights. The shop owner told me he likes his gunpla metallic looking so those kits with metallic finished were done by him. There are also other model kits done by his clients or members to the shop. Not just ordinary modeler but one with GBWC trophy. To show my support for Orbe Station, I bought GM Sniper K9 which I lot from Gundam Build Fighters episode 18.
