Default Hobby Raw?

Anyone ever order from them? And where are they located, I have looked on their site but can't find their location. Wondering if this is a good option for ordering parts. I want to get the metal vvss, Mato wants 120+ around 30 to ship. I can get them across the pond for a bit less but then we run into some of the shipping delays a bunch of peeps are experiencing.

Cheers,
Wade

China. They are located in China.

Look under 'Shipping and Warranty' where they state: "We will ship your purchase via China EMS or Air Post for all of world customer."

Well, I don't think their shipping is ALL that bad.

I'm looking at another Sherman from them and a few sets of tracks to complete my tanks.



I think the JS-2 will have to wait so I can complete all of these projects sitting around, and even more so since the 1/16 SU-100 kit is still alive!

Okay, I am trying them out as I bought a couple of metal tracks and related gear from them. Of course, I used PayPal as I am trying to ramp up a few tanks for my trip to Danville later in May.

I'll let you guys know how fast and how it turned out.

Their price on tanks AND shipping isn't that bad. [&o]

I think myself I'll look out for the Jagdtiger and do a lot of surgery. This way I'll have the heavies...


... Jagdtiger, Elefant and the Sturmtiger
