  1. Model shops in Hong Kong and Taipei?

    In Taipei, back in 2014, there were three main Hobby Shops. In fact I found three when I arrived in 2010, and my Taiwanese friends told me the same (but there must be a few more selling gundam and the likes). I believe they're all still around, hopefully at the same address. Those three are: Ji shin (or Jixing) AFV MPK All three are not really near 101, especially MPK, so you'll have to use MRT, bus or taxi. To Jishin, MRT is the best, as there's a station nearby, Longshan temple (Dragon mountain temple) IIRC. For the other two, you can setup your trip by bus using googlemap, this works well. There's a usefull pass that makes the bus and MRT easy, you can get it at any MRT station. Got to remember the name. You can even use it as a credit card with 7/eleven and the likes. But taxi is also very cheap, you can indicate the nearest big crossroad to the driver, or the full address. FYI, I believe that about one taxi driver out of one hundred speak english. Also, do not forget to keep your hotel card with you for the return trip. - Ji shin The smallest, but maybe the warmest shop of the three. Laoban is an ex ROCAF mechanic who used to work on F-86 at Hsinchu (I believe). Doesn't speak english, but most friendly (Taiwanese are, really). His son does. Here you can meet the cream of Taiwan modellers community. Here also, you can order every Hasegawa kit, as long as it's not OOP... for about half the European price. And you'll get it in... three days! - MPK Biggest of the three - And AFV

    Well, guys, better face reality, I haven't started yet, and won't be able to do so in time before the GB's end, for different reasons. So, I'm off this one. I just hope to meet you all again on another blindaille GB before the end of the year. Cheers!

    Usually, Brits authors tends to be interested only in the part played by the RAF, around a dozen days before withdrawal. Twelve Days in May is for exemple interesting, but mostly written with reports that haven't been cross-checked. There are loads of French books on the subject, of different qualities, but a few really stands out. They're also out of print, out of stock and out of price, most of the time...

    You're interested in the whole campaign, that is from september 1939 to the colapse of France, right? From Grub, you got to get this one. There's also Mr Franks book about Dunkirk. Still interesting, about a well known battle early in the war

    Well, that would not be my choice.

    There's this Whitley VII... And those Japanese birds. And not expensive at all. Why not, after all?

    my mistake, I realised too late. I know a bit about Anigrand, but nothing about Sanger. I'll dig a bit about the later, just out of curiosity.
