Hands down

Hansa! I sell both and have built both and Hansa wins hands down.
1. About the same price, at least here in the US
2. easier to build
3. easier to convert and/or change the base structure
4. more add on options-doors windows etc
5. simply look better because the finished product doesn't have that "not quite" vacuform look

I would recommend getting the Miniart injected plastic building/street accessory set-lots of good stuff in there

Hansa

Hi Bob
Do you sell the individual components or the complete kits (hansa)?
Do you do international mail orders? I have not been able to find a supplier in NZ and if I have to buy by mail order it might as well be from someone who has taken the time to reply.
If so do you have a websitie I can visit?


(if this question breaches rules for this forum I apologise).

thanks in advance

Stewart

hansa

September 17 2008, 8:09 PM 

No website now. I do sell Internationally.
I just answered to help not to sell anything:) It'[s only a part time/fun time gig for me and my 2 buddies.
Anyway, My stock is quite low right now. Basically I only have the middle east buildings and yes I do have some components. It would be easier for you to simply email Peter at hansa. They do have a website to see the stuff.
I would tell you that if you get a building order a bag or two of extra bricks and tiles and other assembly pieces. That's the one thing I don't like about Hansa if the kit takes 100 bricks to build a kit you get 101 bricks so not much room for mistakes.

If you have something you want in particular I can let you know what I have in stock.
My email is cjltd at (take me out) roadrunner.com or bobdave at bobdave dot com
Maybe I can help
Best Regards bobC
