Tips Regarding Model Kits in Perth
While the type of models that you assemble for your collection is a personal preference, consider our tips for getting the most value out of your kits.
- Shop online: Browsing kits online is a convenient way of sourcing specific models to add to your collection. We have an extensive selection of models to suit various interests, and if you can’t find something specific at our online store, our experienced team of modellers are sure to source it for you. Our products are high-quality and excellent value for money, and you can readily shop for everything you require to complete your project.
- Purchase quickly: Assembling model kits is a popular hobby that has been around for many years, so if you see the perfect subject that fits your growing collection, be sure to purchase it promptly. Some models can sell out quickly which means you may have to wait for a restock or place a special order which can take time to arrive
- Display models in a protective case: You can protect your models from dust or accidental damage when you display them in a protective case. A transparent plastic covering means you can showcase your models without the worry of people touching or scratching the displays.

What You Should Know About Model Paints in Perth
We provide a selection of paints that are ideal for modelling kits.
- Acrylic: This paint is easy to apply with a brush or spray. It has a quick drying time meaning you can paint and dry your model in a few hours rather than days. Acrylic paints have a low odour and can be thinned with water which makes cleaning up easy.
- Enamel: Enamel is an oil-based paint and can be thinned out with turpentine. Although it is slower to dry than acrylic, the advantage of enamel paint is that you can soften it again with white spirits and remove the paint. This feature is ideal for creating washes and filters to give your model a weathered look.
- Lacquer: Lacquer is hard, durable and shiny, which makes it ideal for natural metal finishes and aircraft models.
