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.
Um, no, that really is Sentai's site, and they're wholesale
rather than retail. International Hobby Supply is their retail side,
kinda like Military Model Distributors & Squadron Mail Order. I don't
know if this'll pacify you either, but here's another link to a

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.

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.
I heard they will soon reissue another 20 Testarossa kits, so we can
have one kit dor every one of the 22 Testarossa ever built, with the
correct licence plate numbers decal in the kit !!! wuaaaauuuu
yeah guys, gernot's the best at helping you get kits that don't make it here.
his kindness has helped me several times.
