Sorry if this has been posted before and elsewhere, but I just discovered it myself in an attempt to secure some Tamiya part sprues...

Rainbow Ten, the hobby store in Japan that sold Tamiya sprues (as mentioned in many of the Osprey modelling books) has ceased its mail order operations. Is it possible to order sprues from Tamiya America? I was trying to find the option on their web site but couldn't find a link; do you have to call them and speak to a human being?

Thanks!

D.

If you life in the US, Tamiya USA sells sprues, decals, tracks, etc. from all of their kits. In the past HLJ has also sold sprues for not only Tamiya but other Japanese made kits. I believe that service might have been temporarily suspended though. There is probably something about it on their web site.
