And in Japan it's about half that value! Both cases exclude postage, that as a matter of fact, for my country are quite identical.

But Man! What the heck is this, after all? Am I alone or is $80 quite a sum, but really quite a sum for such a tiny little kit? I don't know how to express properly my angry, but I think it's about time importers and distributors all around the world to realize that the customers (This means all of us!!!) are following simple links and they get quite upset when they are confronted with these unexplained divergences!

And BTW: The "suggested" retail price in UK is even higher than $80: In fact it is $89 for a tiny 1/48 single engine airplane ....

And then some moralist comes to the scene stating you must buy inside your country, even if you pay twice the cash for it without no explanation why something priced at 45$ raises to 85$ just because some middle man appeared in the process! That's enough! The one who loses, but the single one, is the brand: In this case Tamiya, and that's a true pity because their products are spectacular but this steps away customers instead of plugging them with the brand!

Really sorry for my frustration with this, my good fellows, really sorry sad.gif Heck! $80!!! What will be next!!!
