Opinions, please, on the best place for a British based customer (ie, me) to purchase die-cast model airliners. It seems to me that with the pound buying a lot of dollars at the moment, getting them from America works out cheaper. For example, a British Midland DC-9 in the Aero Classics range costs £29-95 from a British retailer and $29-95 from an American one. The latter is substantially cheaper but some shops, such as Adam Jets of Florida, add on hugh shipping costs which more than make up for the saving.

I know about ebay having bought a Gemini Jets BOAC B741 off it. However, as someone who is relatively new to this game I wondered if any retailers come up with some good deals.
Having looked further, Jetway Models of (I think) Seattle seem to be very good value though their range is not quite as extensive as some of the others. Just ordered a couple of Aero Classics from them.
