surely fxx-k

Hope so! Would be cool if they did the Aston Martin Vulcan and McLaren P1 GTR to accompany it. Wishful thinking, I know.

Aoshima and Fujimi where you at?? Let's see you guys make use of that Mclaren licensing with a P1 GTR (or even just a P1).

I would deeply prefer a 488 gte, or also just that ultra famous and beautiful 458gt2 from afcorse that I had to build by myself...

I wonder why HLJ or Hobbysearch haven't begun pre-ordering of the FXX K??

The feedback I got from them both is that they don't have any "official" timing from Tamiya, so have not posted reserved orders. I find that interesting given other sites have something (who knows accuracy). :confused:

HLJ seems to be slacking in everything lately, not getting things in as quick and not keeping as much in stock. Becoming a second rate distributor.

Although, I'd agree with you that it's highly annoying HLJ and others do this it no doubt saves them money in the long run not having as much excess inventory. It some what makes sense with pre-orders the item may be a hit or a flop. I don't understand, however, the proven consistent selling items being of stock (besides OOS from the manufacturer).

I liken HLJ's change to Amazon's recent inconsistency in shipping. Sometimes they take almost 2 weeks to ship out something listed IN STOCK and sold/shipped by Amazon.

Looking at HLJ website it would appear there is an issue with Tamiya. They are currently showing only 3 kits as being in stock when you search Tamiya/ Racing Cars. Everything else is backordered or Out of Stock

I backordered 2 Tamiya Ferrari kits off them recently but after waiting 7 weeks I cancelled and purchased off Hobby Search who shipped the next day.

I ordered the Tamiya reissue Honda RS1000 weeks ago from HLJ, they've been all over ebay for sale for weeks and there's one at my LHS....but HLJ show it as March Release and not in stock.

And while we have HLJ in the spotlight, I have been placing orders for items being shown as ' In Stock ' only to find they are ' Back Ordered ' when I log in to my account the next day.

Guys, is this not because tamiya are sick of these stores sending stuff overseas at a massive discount? Tamiya promised to crack down on it this year.
