1/43 Diecast shops in Taipei

Does anyone know any good shops in Taipei? I'll go there next week for a day or two.

Cheers,
Adam

Only one I've ever been to is near Ximen Station in Taipei. There is a building about 2 blocks from the MRT (subway) station that has some die cast shops. Unfortunately I've definitely noticed a decline in the number of shops in this building when I was there in 2013 compared to the first time I was there in 2008 (?)

70 Xining S Rd
Taipei, Taipei City

It's the green building in the street view. I think the shops are on the 3rd or 4th floor.

If I were you I'd eat some egg tarts & get the 85C coffee at 85C Cafe!

Thanks dbonser!

I think I can still recall going to that building 4 or 5 yrs ago. I remembered there was a shop that has many 1/43 model cars, some without original packaging. I didn't pick up much model cars there, as the prices are higher than in Hong Kong.
