I don't know if she posts to the USA but you can always ask.


Thanks for the heads up.

Elaine just emailed me to say that she is happy to ship to the US.

I feel strongly about the human aspect, and we should visit every hobby shop we come across.
Often enough while the store may not stock what we want, the staff may be working there because they are engaged in the modeling hobby, and for that reason may know someone who shares your interest.
It's all about networking amongst humans (which is, after all, why we are all here at NRMF!)

...but you will (probably) pay hefty customs duties, so we may as well include VAT as a first approximation to total cost.
That said, my limited experience is that prompt and informative replies to email is a good measure of good service in actually shipping the product.

Yes. I found her to be honest in her descriptions and good to talk to. She also has quite a range of things to look through from Hornby service sheets to stuff that I did not know existed... It is interesting to know what she will have in next.
One does have to be quick if one sees something you like as often some interesting things can dissapear quick.
