Default Model shops in Hong Kong

I am in Hong Kong at the moment and wondered if anyone could advise me where there are some model shops that will stock 1/10 touring parts?

There are many in Mong Kok near Kwong Wa Street. I travelled there a little over a year ago on business and met up with a local racer there in HK and that's where he took me.

Kwong Wa Street in Mongkok is definately the place to be if you are looking for 1/10th scale model car parts in Hong Kong!

You can also try Weigo Hobby in Yaumatei. It's a 2 minute walk from the Yaumatei MTR station.

I was pretty disapointed in the RC selection in HK. I went to all the spots in Mong Kok too. RC Mart (Dinball) while waaaay out on the other side of town was the only place I really bought anything (They are on the 2nd or 3rd floor of this really ghetto non tourist area and there is no real retail front, but the inside office was nice and the staff were pretty good. I guess it depends on what you are looking for as well.

Did you order online from rcmart.com then go collect or just went direct to buy cause I was told by them that they don't sell outfront.

I went there physically just to check it out and they had a computer set up in the reception area to look up stuff on their website. I just made a list of part numbers there and the lady went into the back and picked the stuff. That was a year ago though so maybe they changed their policy? I never called in advance though either, I just showed up...tough place to find too...lol
