Several of us at NOVA (Northern Virginia) IPMS combined and made a whopper of an order.  Shipment in 2 boxes.

 

I snagged:

  • 1:32 Revell He111 H6
  • He111 H6 Eduard PE Color Interior
  • Horse model, Engine model and Wind Power Car for the kids
  • Several reference books
  • A boatload of consumables, paint, masking tape, sandpaper, sand sticks, etc

Wrong side of the 'pond' shipping and HM Customs makes it pointless. Though some of the terminology that I've seen coming from the US is reaching our shores (Black Friday, Cyber Monday/Week - whatever they actually mean) the reductions are massively underwhelming on the whole.... I'm not sure that Hannants even bother.?

We get free shipping to US addresses so it makes this sale even more appealing.

Since I have over 200 1/32 aircraft kits, I can wait a bit to get the newest kits ;)  So, what I usually do is add things to my wish list on the squadron site throughout the year, and then wait for the BF 50% off sale and load them into my cart and make my purchase.  While a few things don't make it (are out of stock), I usually manage to get 90% of what I am after during the sale.  Of course, there are some kits/lines that squadron don't carry, and those I order as the opportunity arises so I don't have to go a whole year without some new kits to check out ;)

Thanks Matt

 

Interesting stuff.... now maybe next year Hannants will have a 50% off sale, but I won't hold my breath.....

 

Matt

Yeah right!

 

Not sure UK stores know the meaning of the word 'sale', certainly not in any meaningful sense

 

In my experience "25% off" when the original price is like on and half times what I can get it for from the Far East is known as 'taking the p*ss'

 

Still, well done to all you guys Stateside for your purchases - very jealous!

 

Maybe I can purchase vicariously??

 

:)

I'm kind of the same way, but typically I'll only buy Trumpeter and Revell kits plus aftermarket bits during the sale.  For Tamiya and Hasegawa it's still usually cheaper for for me to buy them here in Japan.
