I will be travelling to Shanghai tomorrow and could anyone provide me some good 1/43 shops there?

Cheers,

Adam, I hope this isn't too late.

Try 'Model Universe' :

18 FangXie Road
Huangpu District
Shanghai

It's quite hard to find - it took me two attempts last time. It's located on the first floor, above a "7-11" type store but to get there you have to enter from the stairs at the back of the building. See my old thread from last year :

They say they have several other stores in Shangahi, but I haven't visited them personally :

Thanks for your information Jager. I've found this shop a few years ago and I guess it carries the most 1/43 model cars in Shanghai. Only the flagship shop and the Da NIng Branch exists now. They carry Minichamps, IXO, Premium X, BBR's, Schuco etc. Its a nice place to visit but in the end I didn't buy anything cause it costs more than in Hong Kong and the items they carry are either "I already had them" or "I don't want it at all".

Cheers,
Adam

Thanks Adam. My experience with their prices were similar and the only model I bought there was a large IXO Matra race transporter than would have cost lot in postage if bought from anywhere else.

I'll be back in Shanghai in mid-November and will let you know if I find any other stores.

It's a cold, wet, grey day in Shanghai and you can barely see a couple of kilometres through the smog. I don't think I'll be going model hunting this afternoon !
