We all hear about those bad apples. So if you had a good experience trading online with some one from this site post it here.

Three direct sellers come to mind right away...

Tony Bunch
ZiggyFoos
Bill Giordano

Those three guys were easy to deal with - I'd buy models from them again.

Laurence Batcholer (Lozza1981) is a good e-bay seller, who I've bought many a book from. I wouldn't hesitate to bid on any item he listed on ebay.

Bill Giordano is reliable. I've bought two (or more) resin, 1:350 kits from him, and everything went very well. I'm hoping he will find for me a large-scaled kit of the Nagato or Mutsu.

I am casting my write-in ballot for Laurence as the next Prime Minister !

The man deserves an MBE, in my opinion!

I too second that Laurence/Lozza belongs on the list - without him my Ensign collection wouldn't be complete...

Also, Mike Bartel from IHP definitely gets my vote - fast delivery, excellent kit! :thumbs_up_1:

I have to add Dan/RNfanDan as well - thanks to him I've finally a 1/600 Tirpitz with a good hull... :thumbs_up_1:

Thanks for the kind words above guys :wave_1:

My vote goes to WEM one of the best companies I've ever dealt with in any area of business, efficient, helpful, polite and they listen to their customers which is the most important thing :thumbs_up_1:

John Snyder at WEM and Jaques Druell at L'Arsenal, they're both in the same boat. Their service and product is first class, and they always reply to e mails whether ordering or queries. They know how to communicate.

Also never charge until item is shipped. Very proffesional. Thanks Guys.

Randy Short is a nice guy who answers emails. Gets your product to you quickly and keeps you informed of any delays or problems that come up before you have to ask. The kind of person you enjoy doing with!

I have the honor to do bussines with a lot of great people(WEM ,PF,NNT, Regia Marina),but my vote goes to Randy Short and Bob Ciccioni,those guys are great,to much for my understanding,living in a third world country,is hard for me to find that kind of honest people.

PS . I'm waiting for an email from both
