Just got my Tamiya 109 in the mail today. Generally I try to spare everyone my convolutions in plastic, but as this is a comparison thread, I'll flash a bit of plastic if I feel it's warranted. Here are the two boxtops involved:
I bought the Eduard kit straight from Eduard as I needed a bit of PE that I couldn't find in Australia a couple months ago.
the postage was almost the same for one PE fret as it was for one PE fret and two Eduard 109's.
Here in Australia the Eduard Profipack 109's retail at about 55$ AU.
The Eduard Weekend Edition 109's about 34$ AU.
And, the Big T 109 comes for a lofty $69 AU. I bought it at Hobbyco Australia who shipped it postage-free.
Please stay tuned.
