I ordered some stuff from tristar
there was a problem with the site so they contacted me direct and sorted out my order
i odered it last week and got it today from hongkong the prices are great for us brits 12 for a new tool firefly any one! if you want to order from them do it through the contact us as there is a problem with ordering from the site direct, also once the order has been accepted instead of faxing the invoice form back print it off sign it and scan it and email it back as an attachemt on an email saves some pennies sending a fax they seem to have a really good selction of stuff as well

joe,
it was 12 for the kit but I ordered some tristar figs as well so P&P worked out at 14
so for the kit and figs and postage 29 but I never requested EMS so you may get it cheaper if you ask for EMS

Hi, Joe,

Have you ask them about the Hobby Fan FH70? The postage for it will be similar to the Firefly. So with registared mail you got it at about 55Pounds.

It is a great shop. It is always the first stop when I go hunting with fellow modellers. They have a very large selection, and always have some hard to find kits.

Another good place is Falcon shop
http:// www.hk-hobby.com
But they have smaller selection, but it is the best place to get Eduard, barrels, and CMK.

yorkie,

i sent them an email, and a fax, and never got a reply. to be honest id forgotten about it.
it is very reasonable, compared to what some charge for it.

cheers

joe
