Hello

I have been a happy customer of Hobbyterra for some years, due to their extensive range of 1/72 scale stuff from eastern european manufacturers, and and I also like that they don't price their stock in euros.

I seem to have forgotten the password to my account at Hobbyterra and the 'Resend Password' function is broken, so I have been unable to order from them. I have advised them of this problem.

Can anyone recommend another other online retailers that sells 1/72 eastern european stuff specifically the brands of Orion, UMmt, UM, ACE, Military Wheels, Zebrano, & IBG.

I very much prefer retailers that accept US dollars not euros due to exchange rate issues with my own currency

I have no interest in retailers that sell Revell, Dragon, Trumpeter, etc so no recommendations for those required, thanks.

Kind Regards
Neil

Hi Neil,

I'm in Oz and have not met a better, friendlier and/or trusted operator that Ivan Kolenko at Models Ua.
He has most if not all of the brands u are after.

I've dealt with Ivan for a few years now and very happy.

No affiliation just a happy punter.

Hi Neil,

I use Milan at Track & Troops for future project stuff as he has the biggest range
but does not carry a lot of stock so some products can have a long wait.
(I suspect a Modeltrans Sherman hull held my last order up.)

Jadar is really good too, fast and has books as well every thing seems to be in stock

My last order was from ModelsUA I used them for the first time & they were very good too
(got the ACE Vickers & some spare tracks for it to use with a IBG Bren! & Pz II tracks for a Italeri Wespe.

Cheers Elliott.

They carry most of what you want though with limited range. I use them all the time.

Hello

Marcus, David, Elliott, Gianni, Wil, & Rudolf

thanks to you all for responding with suggestions, I will check all these out, its a big help to get tips from other braillers, as not all online stores stock much 1/72 scale, which is all I build in.

I haven't given up on Hobbyterra, will certainly use them again, when they fix my password problems, I just wanted to get an order in so that some stuff would be in my hands before I have a short holiday later in June, when I will have a bit more spare time for messing about with builds.

cheers
Neil
