Featured Seller - Hobby Cafe Davao

Hello again my precious plamo addicts! I hope your fingers are sore from all the WIPs you've been working on! I've got some interesting reviews coming up on the blog soon, but before that, I'd like to share another store feature, because really, more stores means more options to choose from and translates to kit and tool availability for everyone, right? This particular store hails from the deep south, and is one that is well trusted by our Visayas and Mindanao based brothers in arms. If you think the best kits and hobby supplies are only accessible to those within a stone's throw from NCR, you're dead wrong. Our southern brethren are just as well equipped and are able to put forward some spectacular work, thanks to shops like Hobby Café Davao!

Established in February of 2015, Hobby Café Davao is a home-based retailer of everything Gundam, and more. The store comes well reviewed by it's patrons, and carries a wide range of kits for all skill levels, with some highly sought after models in stock.

The shop also sells the basic tools needed to get into the gundam building hobby, as well as  advanced equipment for experienced modelers looking to improve their plastic painting prowess.

Tap on the links below for an updated list of what the store has on-hand:

The proprietors are working hard to get even more supplies to offer their customers,  and I'm sure the southern plamo community is excited to have easy access to popular paint brands like Mr. Hobby and Gaia Notes.

In addition to gundam kits and building tools, the store also takes orders for military scale models and vehicles from top brands like Revell, Hasegawa, Tamiya, Aoshima and Fujimi, as well as some select Nendoroid and Kotobukiya collectibles. Hobby Café Davao takes pre-orders for upcoming kits and anything that might not be on-hand at the time you check out their stock list.

Hobby Café Davao is able to ship nationwide via JRS and LBC, so if you're interested in something they have in stock, feel free to order even if you're in the far reaches of northern Luzon! Same day shipping is possible if the deal is closed early in the day, but 1-2 days shipping is the norm. Meetups can also be arranged at SM City Davao, Ecoland, Davao City, or the Abreeza Mall of Davao on occasion.

On top of their retail and preorder services, the store also offers commission painting for those keen on collecting well painted models but are short on free time. Simply send them a private message on their facebook page for inquiries on pricing.

  1. HCD is also the only local seller where we can source Kotobukiya option parts, metal thrusters, and whatnot. That's their standout feature.

    1. I'm glad these shops are doing their best to bring the good stuff in for the community. They're "leveling the playing field" so to speak. It's a great time to get into the hobby!
