Buying from super-hobby.com- what should I expect as a US buyer?

Hello all!


Found a great Orlik kit that I'd love to buy and found it for a good price on the Polish-based super-hobby.com.
Do any US buyers have experience with Super-Hobby that can tell me what to expect besides the obvious long and expensive overseas shipping?

Thanks!


P. S. If anyone's curious the kit is Orlik #100 10/2014 Tu-154M Polish Air Force 101/102 (below)

Super-Hobby's prices are high compared to other vendors. A quick search turned up the kit at GPM and Orlik, both of whom I have ordered from in the past without any problems.

Thanks! I'll take that into consideration and look around for other vendors.
Saves me the money I would have wasted on an overpriced copy...

Try kartonmodellshop.de. Very reliable, have ordered from them for years, also takes PayPal.

This was clearly meant for another thread. Sorry.

I am sometimes afraid that I'll mess up a model that is complicated.

I now keep a mental note of where sub assemblies can be cut out or cut off. So 'print and start over' doesn't have to mean from the very beginning.
