  2. i Think some of this is down to Tamiya Fan folk, yes I am sure the model has issues, what kit doe not, but its getting a awful lot of unjustified stick. There are a lot of complaints about the price, thats fair if you are in the USA where they are paying close to $200 and in the EU where its Euro 150, but in the UK you are paying no where near this. Apart from the uninformed who purchased from oversea for a fortune only to find out If they had a little more patience, they would have got it for a lot less from our retail network in the UK , again i think this has caused trouble.
  3. GREAT WALL HOBBY L4828 1/48 F-14 TOMCAT NOW LANDED AND FOR SALE Great-Wall-Hobby-L4828-Grumman-F-14B-Tomcat-with-4-US-Navy-Unit-Markings (tigerhobbies.co.uk) Now its landed we can see why the rest of the world is selling this model upto 50% more expensive than Tiger Hobbies. (Tiger Hobbies did the deal to keep the RRP same as Tamiya in the UK. I will compare this model to the Tamiya version cue to the same price point as GWH in the UK of £99.99 TAMIYA

  5. Once these Hasegawa models are sold out they will not be purchase by Tiger Hobbies again, so these are a great price, once they are gone they are gone. I will not go into why, but we have our reasons.

  7. I have confirmed the RRP for UK Distribution, before dealer discounts AHHQ006 US Army M10 Tank Destroyer £169.99 AHHQ007 British M10 Achilles £159.99
  8. What I was saying is if you were to buy a F-14 to convert better to spend £50.00, also we have about 60 of these and once gone they will never come again., but thanks for taking time to read and comment on the thread.
  9. Well you can always buy the Tamiya one and justify 100 Quid, better to justify 50 Quid. The actual Importers RRP is £89.99 on the Hasegawa F-14, so at £49.99 this is a giveaway.
