Top up fuel, pilot take a rest, got more thing to load up, got things to unload....

Japan is normally the place to stop from us.

The ACE Hobby that u all mentioned sell a lot of nitro stuff but very limited electric stuff and even less tamiya products.

Anyone got any website that sell a lot of electric stuffs and tamiya products?? Excluding tamiya own web pages.

Thanx

Default shipping options

i agree tt ordering should be last resort... but some things i've ordered before or currently want to order are really quite impossible to find here (but if can, someone pls open my bloody eyes)... for instance, proline chevy suburban body, proline humvee shell, ballistic stupidity parts, smash and bash racing parts for MP...

amazingly my ballistic stupidity parts for TXT shipped from Canada on 10 Apr and arrived yesterday.. 8 days! i didn't even ask for fast shipping but the guy was nice enough to absorb the air freight... waah...

so, sometimes shipping can be a hassle and headache, sometimes its just one click and your money is spent....

It will be nice to share what are the nicer online hobby shop that willing to ship to Singapore at a reasonable cost. So far, I have good experience with

Radio Models Supplies - Australia
RL Hobbies - US, MI
RCboyz - US
BRP racing - US
www.rcmodel.com.hk - Hong Kong
East Coast Model Center - Canada

However, shipping charges for RL hobbies and East Coast
Model Center is quite high.

Anyone else have others to share ?

Default Us shipments

I agree most of these places are right by in the San Francisco bay area.. ACE-hobbies... Stormers..... Sheldons... Castle.... Anyway to get to Singapore from SFO you have no choice but to go through Japan/Hong Kong/ or Seoul... 80% going through Japan. I am always traveling to Singapore so if you guys really want stuff from here I can post before I leave and pick up some stuff save you shipping costs.
