Re: Card/paper model retailers in North America ?
The only problem with ordering from overseas is the high shipping cost.
Unfortunately, a major retailer of card models in the US went out of business about 4-5 years ago. Don't know of any others in the US.
Nothing against those who reside in Poland, China or Ukraine, just using examples by naming countries....but, living in Delaware, USA, I'd rather order paper ship model kits from somewhere in North America. Beside, I think most of us would rather deal with retailers that we know are at least somewhat near ourselves. Or even possibly have no barriers concerning language if a problem should arise...
Is anyone aware of distributors of JSC, DIY, Answer , Wilhelmshavener Modellbaubogen, ect. in North America ?
To expect a model to arrive not bent up or otherwise compromised can be a lot to expect when it has gone through a lot of processing since leaving the other side of the globe, ya know ?
Otherwise, my choice is:
eBay with a choice that can be limiting, or
Deal with someone in Eastern Europe who can package correctly for shipping and still receive a partially damaged kit because it had travelled so far to begin with & attendant problems from that.
