Has anyone here ever dealt with this mail order outfit? If so, were your experiences satisfactory?

They are inexpensive and service is top notch ,Kev. I love sprue bros, but their prices don't come close to Scale Hobbyist really

Excellent news indeed. They have a kit in stock, that is the hands down best price I've yet encountered, so I'll be ordering from them.

I'll be ordering from these folks in a couple of weeks, and am really looking forward to it.

It's a great retailer.  They have the easiest website to navigate (by far)  of any of the major online shops, they routinely have the best prices, and they have a pretty round selection.  There are definitely a few things I need to get elsewhere, but they're one of my go-tos for sure.

I order from them frequently. Not as fast as SB but cheaper for sure. Good service.

Thanks for all the input, fellas, I appreciate it a lot. They do seem to have a lot of stuff in stock, but sadly no 1:32 Hasegawa Bf 109G-14.

Hi John,

 

I would think that the relatively close proximity between you and SB is one reason why shipping from them to you is shorter than from ScaleHobbyist; they're located in New England (New Hampshire I think).  I have the opposite experience being in Pennsylvania.  Even though SB is fast, my close proximity to ScaleHobbyist results in shorter shipping times than SB.  Either way, they're both a lot faster than other online retailers.

Sounds reasonable. Just as an example: Alclad Airbrush Cleaner is $3.39 at SH and it's $4.49 at SB.
