    MATOMART

    I'm a newby but I thought I should give credit where credit is due. I have now ordered both parts and a tank (Sherman m4) from MATOMART and the service has been fast, efficient and courteous. My e-mails were answered quickly and the shooter problem on the Sherman was addressed immediately (not fixed yet but the problem was acknowledged within hours of my first e-mail. I'd like to see them expand their after market and upgrades parts and produce a KING TIGER, PATTON, and T-34. How have your experiences been? Who is the best to deal with in your opinions?

    RE: MATOMART

    I've ordered a HL Tiger 1 from them and two WSN T34s form Matomart.... items arrived quickly and well-packed. Nothing but good things to say about them.

    My only wish? That they would allow you to visit the warehouse in North Toronto to buy retail. I've asked, they said 'maybe some day'.... but I would love to just drive up and buy off the shelf. Guess they're not set up for that.

    I'd be all over a Patton tank!! Especially any M60 or the M47 for sure!

    RE: MATOMART

    Which Patton? M-46, 47, 48s and 60s were all Pattons. I have one of only two M-46s, Joel couldn't find anyone to take the masters and produce conversion kits from M-26-46, so a very good oportunity for a great tank went south. I'd love to see an M-47 or an
    M-48A3.

    RE: MATOMART

    MatoMart is a good place to buy tanks. They ship fast, answers your emails within a day or so, and their prices are competitive.

    Other places I recommend you can deal with are ETOARMOUR, WelshDragon, RCTankWars, and the AAF Tank Museum. All are great guys to deal with!

    RE: MATOMART

    One other thing with these models you realy need to expect to fix something on almost all of them. I have had 15 of them and most had miner problems and a couple that were junk.

    RE: MATOMART

    In my opinion, depending on the brand of tank. The best place to purchase your very first tank is from Phil at Rctankwars. Really great place to shop from for a first tank. Easy to deal with, responds to emails really fast and help with troubles along the way. After you have gotten your feet wet and acquired knowledge on this forum, Raidentech is the place I go for my tanks.Sorry, just how it is. Loyalty costs too much,Rctankwars is mainly my parts supply shop or things I can't get elsewhere. For Tamiya, Dave4what is the man to see. Prices are extremely competitive for Tamiya's and he too will answer all your questions and return phone calls.
    Haven't purchased any tanks from Mato since it's not cost beneficial to have items shipped from Canada. But I have ordered parts andaccessoriesfrom them with no issues. Shipping just makes them a last resort for me.
    Need Tamiya 1/35 T72-M1 (model) instruction manual. Please contact me if you either have no use for it or can make a copy.

    Yeah, Radentec is cheap for tanks but selling no parts limits their usefulness.

    RE: MATOMART

    Actually, they don't advertise it as they aren't a parts and upgrade store. But if you go to their forum, call or email them....if they have it, they'll work something out but they usually don't carry parts unless they have some from returns or what ever. Bought a metal gearbox set from them for $25 bucks, Pershing metal tracks for $40 when it wassupposedlyout of stock, and PIII turret (broken with no airsoft unit ) for $15. Not always the easiest to communicate with them due to broken english, but what ever...I deal with that with overseas sellers.

    IMHO and experience, MATO has great service.

    They are very helpfull in answering questions that are emailed in, they are onefactor that got me intothis hobby, because they were helpful before I even bought anything.

    They are handy for those of us living in Canada, too.

    They will be at the Toronto Hobby show this November;

    I expect to buy some "toys" there

    RE: MATOMART

    It would be nice to be able to go buy tank stuff in person.  I live so far from anywhere the internet is my only option.  Mine are the only 1/16 tanks I have ever seen in person.

    I'm in that position as well. I have six tanks on display at the local museum. I am hoping that at least that will let people know they are available and out there is you want one.

    RE: MATOMART

    That's a good idea but our musem is all cowboy and indian stuff.  My local hoby shop ( two towns away ) sells no tank stuff but I've been thinking a photo or two on their message board may generate some interest.

    My new jagdpanther is on the way now.  It will be hours of fun painting, glueing and working out details.

    It's not a total scrach build but I hope to do some scratch details.
