Does anyone (braille-scaler) know of any on-line shop that actually has an in-store inventory of S-Model kits, that won't take 6 months, or so, to find out if my order will be filled?

Hello Biggles,

I have had good service from Dawn Grocery Store in China, they seem to have most of the models in stock and it takes about a week or so for them to arrive. I have just ordered the A13 off them on Ebay and expect it in about 10 days time (could be earlier). Check them out on Ebay, they have 99.8% rating, worth a try.

All the best,

Paul

I've bought Flyhawk from Dawn before. Didn't know they had S-Models too. Fancy a grocery store selling kits! My LHS doesn't sell milk and bread!

I have just received my S-Model Cruiser Tank A13 from DawnGroceryStore, I ordered it on 4th August and it arrived today (10th), so that is a 6 day turnaround, which is better than most European companies. I am shaping up to order the S-Model Crusader in the next few days, look forward to getting that too.

All the best,

Paul
