Default Where to buy GRP 1/8 Foam online?

I used to get my tyres from Japan but they have no GRP Distributor at the moment.

I know Ashford hobby sells them but he dosent ship to down under.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I was just about to say Ashford when I saw the no down under comment. That's a shame. I know Tower Hobbies has some. Maybe they would ship down there.

Yeah I know. Man I have been doing some digging and unless you run a serpent I can't find much. Maybe give Robert a call at Ashford and see if he will change his mind. Otherwise you may have to get them from Europe.

The conversion from aus$ to euro$ does not make it viable.
Thanks mate

GRP have teamed with the Japanese company called Powers, so you should see the new tyres & motors stocked in Japan real soon.
