Actually this is probably more of a do we have a listing of recommended vendors somewhere here? There's a vendor recommend and blacklist at RC Tank Warfare forums but they tend to skew on the European side. There's a sticky thread here I know but it's threadbare (sorry for the pun).
Anyway, where do you all buy your Heng Longs? I have what's looking to be a long project and I wanted input on where you guys get your HL tanks and parts.
I know of Matomart but it's in Canada and shipping is additional cost. It's definitely first on my list but I wanted to know if there are other options. I have seen these:
- Mideatech (eBay storefront)
- TPA Store (Amazon storefront)
- Hobby King
Midea and TPA are promising (to me anyway) because they are in CA and have good ratings. Hobby King am not too sure of but they seem to be advertising here? They have things like a $50 HL PzIII; I mean if not for owning the tank itself that seems like a deal for parts.
