Hasegawa News

Got this off of Sentai's site. I assume it's accurate. Hasegawa warning 1/22/2010 US agent for Hasegawa, Dragon USA, will no longer supply Hasegawa to the US after February, no replacement announced. Stock up now!

That is NOT an official Sentai site. That is a retail seller of models. I already checked that site and saw the message. I suppose you are to stock up on models from their site? I Googled for sentai and found no other information regarding this dire warning. No other model retailers have posted this message and I suppose , if it were true, they would jump on the bandwagon to sell more more of their inventory. Let's wait for Cookie to chime in.

Is that why you bought my Rex and George? They went to the PO tonight.

still lists Dragon as the US only importer to North America.

Besides, I have been hoping Fine Molds will dump Dragon as their importer - since there is a lot of armor overlap, Dragon adds a premium to FM kits less attractive.

Hah! That's you? No, I was in the mood for a George, & no one had one in stock. It's a neat airplane. The Rex is OK too, but wasn't what I was after. Thanks.

Technically it's my son but since I'm no longer a member, he sold them for me. I did the packing and labelling, though. When I saw that name I said to him it might be one of the guys on rms.

Amazing. Well, if you want cheaper options let me know, the kits are a lot cheaper bought online and if there's something you cannot get I am sure I can find it for you locally.
