  2. Tiger Hobbies have imported a few of the new Avis Bristol Scouts, we had this on open pre-order for £16.99 but got no takers, hence we imported just 10 of each. Next time we import them they will be £20.00 (SH*T Exchange rate) with the Euro expected to fall to parity. We have about 8 models across the three versions left after our trade customer orders. https://www.tigerhobbies.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=AVIS MODELS I took the opportunity to top up some Rodens, again we will be looking at a possible 20% increase on next re-stock. There are some fantastic prices, we only charge about £16.99 for a 1/72 Gotha, or £7.99 for a WW1 Fighter. https://www.tigerhobbies.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=roden
  3. If any of the shops out there fancy stepping up a gear and going into importing and distribution, well here is your chance. Problem is not just with Tiger Hobbies, Model Manufactures can make them and Modelers can build them , but in between, them you need a importer/distributor to take a chance on a brand. The established importers in the UK are trying to protect the brands they already have or like us consolidating, so it will be difficult for new manufactures to find a home, especially in these some what troubled times with the falling value of the GBP.
  4. Great Wall Hobby Platz Models fine molds latest to be dropped
  5. We have just taken in a good selection of Hasegawa Models from one of our European partners. Some items only ones in the UK listed on ebay https://www.tigerhobbies.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=HASEGAWA
  6. Tiger Hobbies will import and distribute Border Models These will arrive sometime in late September 2019 https://www.tigerhobbies.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=BORDER MODELS BT-001 1/35 GERMAN PZ.KPFW.IV AUSF.G MID/LATE 2 IN 1 We have set the UK RRP at £41.99 BT-002 1/35 BT002 German MBT Leopard 2 A5/A6 We have set the UK RRP at £47.99
  7. The next Modelcollect delivery with the UA35 series of 1/35 tanks will be delayed coming to the UK by about 4 weeks. Delivery is expected middle of September 2019. We are not sure why we have the delay as the goods were paid for some time ago. Please be patient and you will get the new 1.35 tank series at a great price. Tiger Hobbies UK RRP is £29.99, and most of our retailers are out between £24.99 and £27.99.
  8. Most of what we buy is purchased in USD and we have a much larger facility for USD, hence all our imports for the following brands are protected from price increases up to arrivals end of November 2019. But it is not unlimited so you need to contact your retailers about any outstanding orders, Hobby Master Modelcollect Beemax Rye Field Amusing Hobby Galaxy Models T-Models Armies in Plastic Mission Model Paint. We have no control what so ever with other brands we distributed for other UK Agents The only positive thing about this is the back door boys who import our goods on the grey market, generally do not have the foreign exchange facilities that we do, so their prices will go up almost immediately. Currency History last few years. USD Summer 2016 1.51 to 1 GBP, almost after Brexit vote 1.19, but then recovered to about 1.36, since Mr May defeats in parliament it has gone back to 1.21 and is expects to loose anther 10% Euro Summer 2016 1.42 to 1 GBP Ditto 1.08 but recovered to about 1.17 but now 1.09 and again expected to loose another 10% Still most of you have got great stashes to keep you in your hobby,
