Are you fed up paying high prices at your local hobby stores or limited by hobby supplies at where you live?
Well this is the guide for you!

This guide is a collaboration of all the shops I shop for my hobby supplies and gundams.

Note: KenzBuilds is not trying to defame any shops here, this guide is only a collection of knowledge gained over the years from buying hobby supplies and gundam kits online, which is worth sharing to those in need.

Where to get paints

Some of you are wondering.....
Where can get paints that will ship overseas for a low price!?

These sites are the solution

1: HobbyEasy
www.hobbyeasy.com

Note:
This is the site I use the most when buying Gaianotes paints, they offer alot of Gaianotes lacquers, but don't offer any thinners.

2: EricYYModel
www.ericyymodel.com

Note:
This is the site I order paints, thinners when I need to order a big batch of them, low prices and ships overseas, however theres no cart
system, you need to send them email to order.

3: LuckyModel

Note:
This is the site I order thinners and retarders when they run out, low prices for thinners/retarders but paints are rather higher price then
HobbyEasy.com and ships overseas.
