Hello my friends,

I'm looking for 1/12 MFH kits from the list below. Due to the currently rather "interesting" global situation, general shipping cost from overseas including the hassle with customs (see other thread), import taxes and what have you, I'd prefer to get them from within the EU. Anyone willing to part with one or more of these kits, PM me your ideas. I'm looking at other "sources", too ;).

Code: Select all
MFH K725 - Porsche 908/3 '70 (Ver. A)  - http://www.modelfactoryhiro.com/new/en/archives/32302
MFH K609 - Porsche 917KH '71 (Ver. A)  - http://www.modelfactoryhiro.com/new/en/archives/25679
MFH K673 - Porsche 917/20              - http://www.modelfactoryhiro.com/new/en/archives/28818
MFH K649 - Porsche 917/30              - http://www.modelfactoryhiro.com/new/en/archives/27630


Ok so apparently adding the URL tags within a code tag doesn't work. Well too bad. I've removed the URL tags again and just pasted the URLs to the end. Copy and paste time for those who want to check the links :(.

Kits are ordered alphabetically, not by preference ;) although that GTO is pretty much at the top anyway.

/EDIT
... and the GTO is off the list, because it is sitting on my desk now.
Code: Select all
MFH K466 - Ferrari 250GTO '62 (Ver. A) - http://www.modelfactoryhiro.com/new/en/archives/15229


Thank you

I’ve got a 467 GTO (B version) if that would be an alternative to you. I also own a 917 but that is nr 513. We could do a combo, if you are interested.

Hi Moskie,

the K513 #23 1970 is out, as I already have that on in my collection of 917s together with both LHs (1970 #3 K438 and 1971 #21 K498). I need the missing cars ;)

On the GTO I need to check if version B would be "ok", as I do not want to build any of the MFH intended versions, but the #17 N.A.R.T. car of Bob Grossmann and Glenn "Fireball" Roberts of Le Mans 1962 and the closest for those is version A. I remember the release thread from back then claiming version A is the most universal one. Does your Version B have the left side C pillar with the hole in it or is it a moulded closed?
Cheers,
Roman

this seller needs to go & buy item @ hiro after it has been purchased, he has 0 in stock, not 10.
Delivery time might take a while these days.

Wim,
at first glance it wouldn't be obvious, but thanks for pointing it out. Delivery times as listed: late April to early May, which would indicate as you suggested, that the kit would need to be ordered from MFH first, delivered to France and from there to me. These days, that is going to be a... let's say lengthy proposition with traffic and other services being much more difficult than just a couple of weeks ago. Lots of offers like that on fleabay, usually recognizable by the estimated delivery times.
Cheers,
Roman

Well, for them it's a way of keeping costs & risks low: if you don't stock a kit you have up for offer, there's no loss should nobody buy.

I may be stupid to believe otherwise, but i find a physical stock important and all i offer is actualy available inhouse. Except for the few items i forgot to delist when I sold last - of course :) :)

Possibly the best deals on MFH kits in Europe...

https://www.icarohobbies.com/

...but I personally recommend him

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008354023904

Great deals on MFH and superb service, he's in switzerland but can also send from germany. You should really try him

good luck with your search

I can copy this, made 2 deals with him years ago, the first with 4 weeks delievery time, second was about some etched aftermarket parts which came in a letter, fully bended and no more usable, tried to contact him several times, but never recieved any answer. Not my choice anymore to buy from him again.
Like Wim i find it important that a seller has the stuff in stock, when i remember right here in germany it is forbidden to "sell" things you don`t have in stock.
