Anyone know of any good stores I should order from?

I haven't really ordered anything from the US since I'm up here in Canada.

I would add HobbyNut models to that list as well. A good sale on now and I've gotten good service from him.

In the pattern: Lindberg's 1/48 Snark and Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! Started my Prince of Wales for the Ships of the British Flag GB...oh and I bought another 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!

I dig shopping for the Secret Santa gift.   It's fun trying to find something nice for a complete stranger more or less.  Super fun. 

Thanks,

i would have loved to have had it shipped to me, and then sent it out with a personal note, or something, with the shipping woes and what not,I played it safe and just had it drop shipped.

but, to my recipient, i hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and it has been wonderful to search for the perfect gift for you-have as much fun building it as I did selecting it!

 

 Merry Christmas!

Looks like many gifts will be unwrapped, some wrapped. Let's all assume that they are all not wrapped and prepare properly. Have a spouse or signifcant other open the boxes and check, perhaps wrap it for you. Anyway, lets all assume no wrapping and we will be safe.

My giftee is going to have to have the other half open and wrap if they want pretty paper and a bow.

 

Since I no longer have one of those, I'll just leave it as it shows up till the day.

why can't we pretend that the shipping box is the wrapping paper!  Lol!

 

I know I will keep mine in the shipping box until Christmas Day!

I will probably wrap the one I'm sending, which (I hope) is now on its way to me. Based on the location of my recipient in proximity to myself, the extra leg of the trip may be acceptable...again, I hope.

Got a box in the mail today with a return address from Mega hobby, and I don't have anything coming from them.  Suspect it's the SS gift, but it sure got here in a hurry.

Will wait till the day, just in case.....

 

***Edit***.   Just got notification that my gift has shipped by brown elf and supposed to be delivered by blue/grey elves.

Megahobby has always had amazingly fast shipping....I just thought it was because I'm only an hour away from ther warehouse....I guess not! Lol

I received mine today, as well!  It started with my wife yelling at me for ordering even more stuff from the South American jungle, so I began to open it.  Luckily, it was wrapped in a "special gift bag and ribbon" so I stopped there, when I saw the card tied to the gift bag....

My last Mega order took awhile to get here (60 miles from the Pacific).  This one must have caught everything that smokes at the last second.  Lately USPS hasn't been known for efficiency or speedy delivery.

Anyway, thanks SS.  I'll be fighting the temptation to not open till Christmas .
