    Can some of you guys give me sugestions on some good hobby websites to buy from? I'm becoming interested in resin and photo etched parts, as i keep seeing your guys' amazing accessories and thought I'd give some aftermarket parts a try. Thanks!

    Squadron.com. Hannants.co.UK. Rollmodels.com. and greatmodels.com spring to mind. I live a great distance from any hobby store so online is my only option. No hobby stores near you?

    RGasper, I use Aaron's Hobbies | Your Neighborhood Hobby Shop Online! . Online they sell through Amazon and I have had great service from them. Their accessory parts list is somewhat small but growing. And being that they sell through Amazon, anything over $25.00 is free shipping.

    I use hobbylinc.com, they are based in New York and have a great selection of everything. The site is well organized and has pictures of 99% of the products and their rates are very good for the market. I'm not usually one to sell something but they've treated me well over the years.
