      Can anyone recommend a reputable online dealer for diecast 1/400 scale?

      I've been checking out eBay but the S&H charges are outrageous.

      Thanks in advance,

      Hi,

      Try Jetway Models. I have traded with them a lot and can heartily recommend them. Vast and up-to-date stock coupled with reliable service!

      Thank you guys, I have placed a small order w/ eztoys yesterday using their Memorial Day discount (12%). I plan to place a small order w/ Jetway Models later this week.

      I'm excited as I transition from builder to collector. Given the demands on my time, both professionally and personally, this was the best solution for me to remain in the hobby. I'm very happy with the large selection of GSE, Jetways, and accessories that are available in die-cast, in addition to the wide range of a/c previously unavailable to me, like the MD-11, and the big A340s.

      I plan to use my building skills to make authentic airport layouts. I also look forward establishing a dialogue w/ other die-cast collectors here, time permitting.

      Hi,
      Sounds like a very interesting compromise to remain in the hobby! Also in view of the increased quality of the die-cast models over the past years!
      Good luck- and happy collecting - AND - (still) building!
