Hobby Shops In SIN, SFO And FRA

Wed Sep 27, 2006 12:26 am

Hi i am travelling to Singapore, Sanfrancisco and Frankfurt next month. I wanted to know if anyone has any details of where i can purchase some diecast models in Singapore and in San francisco.
Also, since i will be transiting in frankfurt, are there any shops that sell these models at the airport?

regards

There are no model shops in FRA that I know of. There is a small bookstore in Terminal 1 in the Arrivals area (Arrivals B I believe) that has quite a few models for sale, however, you will have to go through customs and then back through security again. Other than that, there are just the Duty Free shops that carry any.

So the Orchard Store has moved? Back when I used to live in Singapore it used to be in Specialist's Centre!
There used to be one in Centrepoint as well, on the third floor?
