Based on what we are hearing, getting what we want when we want it this year may be a huge challange. Good luck Santa.

i ordered a Zvesda 474, and got it in about 3 weeks from Estonia.

the Amusing hobbies Löwe kit I ordered in early august from China on the other hand.....still haven't seen that.....

The way my Amazon and Mega hobby orders are taking so long to get delivered lately,  might not be a bad thought.  Especially considering we have a couple from overseas and our northern neighbors.

 

 

really?   thats all internal shipping problems there, then!  I usually get my mega hobby ordered two days after notification of shipment....granted, I'm right across the river....

I've bought several kits from Hobbylink over that past few months and all have arrived within two weeks. Stuff within the US is taking longer however. Should be an interesting season. I don't want to draw early as we usually have one or two late shows to the party and I don't want to toss a wrench in the works. Some of us just may have  a bit of a late start, but it's all good.

I'm in again!

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

Could be a revival of brick and mortor.  See it:  Buy it!  I can speak from experience this year, I've already started some of my Chrimmas shopping by just pulling things that I find off the shelf rather than trusting potential shipping delays.

I completely agree with that. Unforturnately, I only have a HL in my area, so I am forced to shop online to find anything outside their small supply and lack of 40% coupon also made me stop shopping there. I used to enjoy swinging by and picking up a kit with the coupon, but not now. They did away with it. Thier loss.

No kidding???!!  They did away with the one thing that actually justified a trip?  YUCK.  I mean, they've been trimming their model offerings for some time now so it's not a huge loss, but I'm shocked they ditched their coupon.  

Though truth be told, it's been a spell since I set foot in a HL.

Brandon,

Not sure if its a regional thing or if its company wide, but my local HL since getting rid of the coupon, has all its boxed model kits at 40% off very frequently. You may want to check if your local store does the same.

Ya, I see they do that. Only one issue with that is if I see that I buy several kits and not just one that the coupon limited me to. So, it works well for them but bad news for my wallet.

it has seemed to be every two weeks the 40 percent off takes effect, here at my hobby lobby.
