Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

1. Promotex.ca out of Canada

Promotex :: Online Catalogue :: 1:500 Scale - Herpa WingsPrice List

Bruce at Promotex is amazing, 99% of the time he answers his phone and when you leave a message within an hour or so he returns your call. He replies to e-mails at amazing speed sometimes you think the guy never sleeps. They have a huge selection of Herpa models,i just wish He carried more brands other than Herpa in 1:500

He makes you feel like you're the most important customer and that's even on my very first 2 model order. Very pleasant to talk to, not just about your order.
Also after you placed your order if there's a problem with the order, he lets you know right away instead of leaving you hanging and usually ships the next day after you placed your order.

2. Aircraft model store , I learned about those guys here on Wings900.

All Models - Items - Aircraft Model Store


Huge selection,not just Herpa models, user friendly website. So no need to contact them.
They're all business in a "matter of fact" type way,they send you your confirmation,tracking numbers within a day or two.


3. Ro-Bud, based out of Poland,

Sklep Modelarski Ro-Bud | Akcesoria modelarskie

Mainly because they got me a rare model, i also talked to the owner's Mom on the phone and both were a delight. And their prices were pretty reasonable.




This thread is basically to let your favorite shop know that you appreciate what they do.

Disclaimer: I've only dealt with about 5 stores, this is a list of stores i m comfortable recommending to other members and noobs like me.
I'm sure there are other stores that i havent dealt with that are just as good.

Looking forward to your input on your top online stores.

Re: Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

I've only dealt with three so far, EZ Toys, Aviation Delight and Aircraft Model Store. And even though both Aviation Delight and AMS are good, with helpful staff my nomination would go to AMS.

Why? Ben takes every order seriously and personal. He goes out of his way to make his customers happy. His prices are affordable. And his range, even though it is fairly limited at the moment, is great. Thanks to him i've been able to purchase models i would otherwise have missed out on completely.

Granted, i've only purchased from Aviation Delight once, but since that purchase they don't have anything interesting anymore.

As for EZ Toys... Overpriced. They charged me over $50 for shipping for one model!

I agree with Oskar, Ben, Thanks for the shipping with the Air China 772, Virgin A346 and Air Canada A340-500!

2.westmaintoys.great models great service
3.scalemodel store in Germany I think??. Hard to get models.

All of the ones I have listed are mainly the only ones I use regularly.

Re: Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

Over the years, I've dealt with a couple of sellers here and there.

For Gemini Jets, I usually buy out of a small shop outside of the Chicago City Limits known as Past time hobbies ( site : Past-Time Hobbies - Corgi, Code 3 Die Cast Vehicles Military Collectibles, Greenlight, Skymark, Gemini Jets, Johnny Lightning,FIRE VEHICLES.CONSTRUCTION,BRITAINS,PASTIME HOBBIES,TWH FIRE/CONSTRUCTION ) .

Other sites I have gotten great service, good prices and would recommend.
- airlinemuseum.com
- diecastairplane.com
- justplanefun.com
- eztoyz.com

I've also dealt with dealing with Dragon (or so I think it was) via their newegg marketplace account, and also give them good marks too.

Re: Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

Aviation Center Berlin: i'm client since year 2000 and i have 20% of discount for each model. The service is very good, they answer to my mails and to phone calls, they are kind, the shipping cost to Europe is not so expensive (15 euro with DHL).

I get my models from Canada and it's about $10 for shipping so i try to get 2 or 3 models at once to save on shipping cost.

Re: Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

I usually buy at: Kircher-modellshop.de - Index even if I buy new planes from Markus in DUS at the Boerse!
Other good sellers are Scale Model Store.com :: Herpa Wings, GeminiJets, Dragon Wings, Hogan, Jet-X and Hobby Master airplane models in the Netherlands and All Models - Items - Aircraft Model Store who often makes special promotions for W900 members.
But I think the best place to buy rare models is here on W900.
Happy collecting!

Lollo

Re: Please, nominate your best online store(s) and why?

My recommendation for new models is
New e-shop Modelyletadel.cz! | Modelyletadel.cz
The shop-owner, Roman is a very nice person. He got me some very rare models and he has low shipping rates. You can choose between czech and english language as well as as three different currecies (CZK, USD, EUR), many payment metods ....

For used models and rarities it is always worth to check out:
Modell500 - Startseite
Welcome to the Homepage from Joerg Klimke

Of course never forget
Kai-Werner.com Startseite
| Herpa Modelle
as well as
world of wings (Flugzeugstore Passau)
DS-Automodelle
Modelutions Dormagen
....
