Re: Squadron Customers- How long have you bought from them? Since they are gone now.
Sometime in the early seventies. My local hobby shop was a small store, very little inventory. Found the Squadron add in a modeling magazine, saw the amazing selection and started ordering.
I got my 1st order from them in 1973. A 1/35 Italeri Hetzer and a 1/40 German Sdkfz 250 from Midori ( I think with the wind-up motor ). My customer number was 132. Tells you I must have been one of the early ones on the bandwagon. Thought it was odd they didn't do a Black Friday sale this year.
I have been buying from them since 1970. Snail mail and thier Elmhearst Store back then. Sorry to see their decline and demise now.
