What is a good online store to get models?

I am looking for a place to order models online. I am mostly looking for Tamiya kits that aren't very expensive. The reason why I am doing this is because there is only one hobby shop where I live and they don't carry very much in the way of models. What is the average price for a model where you live? Around here it is $30 for a Tamiya and about $9 for a Revell.

It's great isn't it!!! I had one like that in Gran Turismo 2!
I would love to model all the generations of Skyline, that would be a nice little collection.
I know Tamiya do the 2000 pictured, the R32, R33 and R34. Have I missed any?

The picture I sent is KPGC10.

There's also PGC10 and KPGC110.

So to list all generations of just GT-Rs-

-PGC10 [sedan]
-KPGC10 [coupe]
-KPGC110 [coupe]
-(looong break, no GT-Rs for many years)
-R32
-R33
-R34

There web site is not the best for info but they tell you the price of all the kits and with the exchange rate for you guys to get stuff to your country....it may be worth a look into.

$1.00NZ = $0.41USA or $0.29UK

So a $50.00NZ kit would only cost you $21.00USA or $14.00UK plus post.

Sound any good ??

I still recommend www.hlj.com. Go search there for Skyline, igor.

For example, here's a Skyline from the non-GT-R years.

Flippin' eck, there was loads of stuff for Skylines!!!

I have the Fujumi R33 Nismo GTR, but Tamiya it isn't, and quite a bit of work will be needed for it to look as good!
I have to source some better wheels for a start!
Should do this one though! If it ever stops raining!
