Default Anyone with American contacts?

Know its a long shot, but I wanted to purchase a few parts from Tamiya america and they only deliver inside the US.

Wanting to know if a) someone has got around this or b) if i could pay someone a handling fee to get the parts from a US friend etc.

What i am after:

I'll have a look tomorrow when I get to work and see if the importer brings them in. I will PM you back with the outcome.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

excuse my ignorance, but is tamiya not a japanese company?

why buy the parts from america? you would just be double handling the shipping...

patrick should give you a good price though.
