Default Kudo to sdshobbies.net

Monday I placed my 4th order from this vendor. I needed to get a few things for a couple upcoming projects. Most importantly was a spinner for a ta-152 I'm assembling right now.

So I was a little concerned when I got an email saying a couple items were out of stock and I could either wait a few days or drop those from my order. I choose to wait because the spinner was one of the out of stock items.

Of course I started to get a little worried thinking of all the back order nightmares from overseas vendors others have gone though.. Well tonight I got an email saying everything was shipped, just a few days wait like they said it would be.

Thanks, sdshobbies

Before you start celebrating and spending large amounts of cash check these out:

I'm not telling or asking you to NOT buy from them, I am only supplying information that may be helpful in your decision to purchase or not to purchase. I very good rule to follow with dealing with companies in China is: If you can't afford to lose your money, buy from someone else, even if it costs a little more.

I had seen that guy's postings before, as far as I know that is the only negative issue to be found. Besides, I wouldn't buy a large plane from they because the shipping is too much, I tend to stick with hardware items and in my previous three orders everything went perfectly.

good to have as much info as possible though

Don't know how they did it,, but my order came today, only 6 days shipping, 9 days since I placed the order,, fastest from them yet even with the delay.

Spinner looks awesome,, I thought I'd be painting it, but I like it as is
