Featured Seller - Magnet Manila

Hello plamo fans! I'd like to introduce you all to Magnet Manila, an online store that sells - you guessed it - magnets! But these aren't your typical souvenir thingamabobs holding up a collection of fast food delivery flyers on the fridge door. They sell NdFeb (aka Neodymium) - lightweight yet extremely powerful magnets that should be a staple in a custom modeler's toolbox!

Magnets have long been the go-to solution for attaching things in a non-permanent manner. For the modeling hobby, they are used to make interchangeable bases and weapon load-outs for tabletop wargaming miniatures, detachable armor pieces on resin and plastic kits, and work great for improving a plamo's grip on a troublesome weapon.

These magnets are strong enough to hold significant weight even at odd angles. I've put them to good use before by making movable hydraulics and to strengthen some joints, as shown in my Renegade Freedom build.

For the longest time I thought these NdFeb magnets were rare, inaccessible, and that using them might make a project's cost skyrocket...

...until I found out about Magnet Manila!

Magnet Manila ( is a fully online store based in the Philippines that carries a wide variety of magnets for all sorts of projects.

Whether you're into crafts or scale modeling, they have the right size and type of magnet for the job, and they sell them at very affordable prices!

They even get cheaper when buying bulk, so you can team up with your plamo buddies and pool your orders to avail of the lower prices!
