I find that when I've ordered anything from Hong Kong that it always seems to get here faster than if I've ordered it from either the US or Canada, too! Kinda makes you wonder about things. Maybe there's a fairy out there who transports our orders around the world for them!

Mjr Goose they ship anywere in the world and they take c/c and paypal you can also see how much the shipping will be before you order, lucky model they just put the price of the shipping on the box and invoice as the price of the kit so it looks alot less than it is to stop nosey customs :-)

Mike, Since I live in The NW UK too, and therefore it would be similiar, can you give some examples of what you've saved? It would be helpful. I've ordered from HLJ and some west coast American firm in the past and the service has always been great but I'm left with the feeling at the end of the day that I haven't really saved a great deal? I don't know whether to always search out the cheapest kit worldwide or just go abroad for the hard to find kits?

vinnie,
saved 15 on the famo tractor unit model shop has it here for 55 kit was 25 and
P&P 15 t-34 by dragon is listed at 35 got it for 12 and 10 P&P once the dragon
kits imported by the old euro supplier have been sold and the prices come down it
will not be worth buying the dragon stuff but for tamiya ect it a fair price I think

Thanks Mike, I've taken a look at the site and it gives various options for delivery, surface etc. You said yours was a really quick delivery. Was that just the basic surface or an upgraded service?

Thanks Mike, I'll give it a try. Hopefully the excellent service you received wasn't a one-off. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again!
