Thank you. I will give them a try. I usually buy my kits online from Asia but they take months to stock from Eastern Europe.

Squadron.com is also a good vendor for ICM kits, especially during one of their sales.

Outstanding service and great packaging.

Also look at BNA, really good service.

If you live in BC give Magic Box Hobbies a try. They have a FB page and email. They are a brick and mortar store with mail order service. Great quality and selection. I wouldn't be expecting Lucky Models pricing, obviously.

Hi Julian

I live in YVR and I've been to Magic Box a few times recently. I agree it is a great shop. The prices are reasonable but I tend to bulk buy through mail order where the prices are better. I found the few times where I bought a kit recently at Burnaby Hobbies and at Magic Box is what interests me in the clearance area.

I plan to check out Cameo Hobbies in Maple Ridge in the near future.

Cameo is good. They seem to specialize in buying collections. They have a tonne of OOP DML kits. I like Magic Bix, I shop regularly and take advantage of the 10% discount card!
