Default Where to buy a Tam sherman in Canada?

Ok so I just e-mailed some place for a quote on the Tamiya M-4 Sherman... This is so bad I could buy 2 for this price...

Advance Hobbies quoted me $1150.00 yes $1150..[X(]

Now I'd like to know of a Canadian retailer that has better prices then this crap! People who rip other people off need to be shot... Man this kind of stuff pisses me off.[:@][sm=punching.gif]

WOW I got lucky and bought mine from the crook in Vancover for $325. I was very nervous when I found out how he got his transaction record, and emailed him a lot. He finally shipped it 7days after the action ended, but I did get it. I checked out his profile recently and he ended up cheating a bunch of people out of money.

Point is, buy one from a reputable place. It is far better to spend a couple of hundred more and actually get the tank, then to think you are getting a good deal, and end up with nothing. I will be honest with you, I have seen way more crooks and poor dealers in tanks then I ever did in model railroading. THis forum can provide a great service, by letting people know who to stay away from. Even the great Mato debate was a valuable contribution.

I have heard good things about the Hong Kong Cowboy. He sells them at a decent price and even with shipping you will be half of what the local guy wants.

What would Stellamodels charge for shipping to Canada? is he resonable with shipping rates? what was your shipping like to the US?

The shipping is more then anyone wants to pay, I think it was between 100.00 & 125.00, but that is the best prices I could find at the time and to come from a shipper that you can trust. Stellamodels also sell the bearing at a good price.

His reply:

The price was wrong and should be CDN$9,867. Full load full function.

WOW this guy will get no sales if he treats all his people like this.. The Top part is what I wrote and the bottom is his reply. I know that he is joking around about the 9,867.... BUT even still. LOL
