Sorry for the snip.

HLJ managed to find B-Club 0083 1/144 resin kits for me. I had to wait for
almost one year to get a Dom Tropen, but in the end I got it. For new kits
I'd suggest to buy magazines like Dengeki Hobby Magazine or Hobby Japan.
They usually have new kits info one month before the kits are for sale and
that's enough to pre-order any kit from HLJ.
Anyway, R10 is better for 'off the shelf' shopping.

About service and shipping I really cannot complain: I live in Italy and I
usually receive HLJ parcels in about two weeks since their sending notice.
