Default HobbyLink Japan....

Wondering if anyone has purchased from them in the past - if so, speed of delivery, shipping costs, etc.
Looking to order an Aoshima kit from them.

Have ordered from them several times in the past with no problems. My last order was when the new tool Hasegawa 1/32 Zero came out. Ordered on a Friday, they shipped it out on the following Monday and it was here two days later on Wednesday. I was amazed to say the least.

Cheers,
Jerry

No customs problems. If I recall right the kit was $35.00 but I cannot
remember how much shipping was. Don't think it was to bad. Do remember that I did order 2 kits and they overcharged me on the shipping but gave me
an in-store credit of $19.00 which I just noticed is still sitting in my acct.
HTH.

Once, went well. They had 48th scale Hasegawa F-4S's on sale for $20 back when they were the only game in town.

I ordered from them on occasion in the mid 2000s... haven't since.

When it comes to shipping, you essentially get what you pay for. It can get there super fast, or they can send it on the slow-boat out of Japan, so you have options.

Occasionally they have some pretty amazing sales.
