Airplaneshop.com

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

I'd take a look in the hobby forum. A few peoplke have been unhappy with the airplaneshop.com

I'm sure you'll get a better response there.

What kind of models are you asking about Yegbey? If you're talking about plastic model kits such as those manufactured by Revell, Hasegawa, Airfix, etc., there are a couple of good sources:

http://www.airline-hobby.com/

http://www.hannants.co.uk/

http://modelairliners.hypermart.net/index.mv

There are others of course, but the above three have a very wide assortment of kits, good prices, and are owned by very friendly and knowledgeable folks. eBay is not necessarily the best place to look for these kind of kits. Sometimes you get very good deals on eBay, but I've also seen some kits sold for far more than they're really worth. One good thing about eBay is that you can often find old, out of production kits.

For r/c models you can also try:

http://www.towerhobbies.com

Hope this helps

Yegbey01 - Take a look at YYZ based http://www.aviationworld.net/ . I personally have not used them (yet) but the diecast 1/400th scale models look well priced from a UK point of view.

For 1/400th scale diecasts my regular supplier is normally http://www.airplane-world.addr.com/ I have had no supply problems with this outlet & their prices are quite reasonable for the specific models I have wanted.

I'm sure other members (as already posted above) can supply other outlets which might be of interest pricewise to all of us collectors.
