Just to say that I highly recommend this dealer. Ordered small parts for my Heng Long Sherman, and they arrived within three days from Germany to Glasgow. Absolutely excellent service, and item.

If you want obscure Tamiya Tank Sprues (Especially Early Tiger 1) on a European Dealer site then "AXELS" is the place to go,
A very good source of all things TAMIYA and SCHUMO.

Both my Tamiya tanks came from Axel. His prices are competitive and response times good. If I have one frustration, it is stock levels. I had a look yesterday and every single Tamiya RC tank kit is out of stock.

That's because he is a shop and cannot hold every one in stock, do you know how long they hang around for?

If you want one email him and you can have it in a week or less.

Does the chap mention on his site you can have one in a week or so! if he doesn't he should..must loose loads of business from people coming to his site and seeing out of stock all the time..or 10days-6months. It should be clearer to the buyer, makes better business sense to me anyways.

Some time back when I was building a Tunisian Tiger 1 I needed the four pot Feifal Air Cleaners but Axels was showing them as out of stock with a six month waiting time,
I put in my order and got the "K" sprue with the four pot air cleaners ten days later. :thumbup:
If i see something that is out of stock on AXELS site I always put in my order knowing that in two to three weeks it will arrive through my letterbox.

Great to the US too. Except I currently have package languishing in DHL hell for the last 2 months.

Hi guys.
Wow, I have been ordering non tank related stuff from all over England lately, and my packages have been taking up to two weeks, and in one instance over two weeks to get to me, and that one was from only 7 miles away lol.

So, I made my first ever order from Axel's modellbau, some Tamiya Sherman parts on Monday 27th, and thought I'd forget about them till they turn up in a week or two.
I just got a knock on the door, and received them this morning, Thursday 30th.

I'm still reeling from the shock 8O
Amazing.

Hi Mr.Gunner,

I think orders from china take longer time because there are limited volume for Parel..

Now I'm very confused.
I've just been on Axel's site. Put some things in the basket that were available, four different items, one of each, all available, yet when I went to the basket to pay, three of the items had his three little red stars that indicate out of stock.
Now I don't know whether to carry on with the order or not?

Well, I decided to go with it and ordered the parts I wanted, even though I wasn't sure about the stock.
And today I received the full order :D
Although it is a little confusing, what with the language barrier and all, Axle's Modellbau is one excellent trader to deal with.

Yet another great transaction.
Once you get your head around how the stock levels work with this vendor, he's always on the ball.
And if you choose the cheaper courier option, you get excellent tracking, and fast delivery from the point of sending.
