    ....You know, I don't want to jinx either of us here, but so far so good.....but depending on parcels landing in Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal it seems to vary on weather ya' get clipped or not. I have bought some hefty loads from Tokyo and am presently waiting on another that should be here next week, with a bunch of other single cars from Japan as well,,,so I'll keep ya' posted...........'the waiting for yet more plastic than ever needed' Ace...lol....

    .....I haven't bought the Astro, but have got several other car kits from them in at least 6 or 7 orders, of usually 5-10 cars per order, and have found them top notch all round. Some of the Aoshima and Fujimi tuners and sports cars are usually quite cheap, and always fun for quick easy builds......the Ace...

    Tokyo Hobby on Ebay has lots of them at 19.70 and 12.80 to ship ........I have bought lots of kits from them, and there service, prices, packing, the works are excellent..............the Ace...

    ..........I will figure out something....it just really annoys me because in all the years of buying and building this stuff, I can say I have never had a problem with any Japanese kit bought new, American kits,,,, yes, lots of times...hope maybe they will actually read my letter and play....but after reading the comments here, I'm skeptical now....the Ace...
  10. AC Norton added a post in a topic ...EVER HAD TO GET MISSING PARTS FROM FUJIMI...   

    ........Well, after reading all the input, I am less hopeful at this point, but lets see if both my email and detailed letter to them gets me a win. I was totally refunded by the ebay seller for the kit,,,,and bought a replacement with a bunch of other Fujimi kits as well just a few days ago. The part that bothers me is now I have, and granted its a freebee, a complete new kit without BBS wheels, slicks, metal axels, and hood pins and extinguisher that are all packed in a cello bag under the body.....its a waste to not be able to complete a new and useable kit..........the Ace......

    Thanks for your comment, Ron.....really didn't have a blast building it, frankly.....it  fought me every inch of the way...lol....guess I've just lost that magic touch...lol........the Ace....
  12. AC Norton added a post in a topic ...EVER HAD TO GET MISSING PARTS FROM FUJIMI...   

    ...That's was my first step,,,they just refunded my money completely for the kit and postage, so I'm on my own now to see if this all goes as planned with Fujimi and if so, I will end up with 2 BMW E30 kits as I just bought a replacement today too. thanks for your comment....the Ace...

    ..........I don't have a camera presently, Alan, but I'm certain that when that new 69 Cuda kit got reviewed here on the forum that pics were in there.....it is quite a nice and useable combo of stuff on that sheet....best, the Ace...

    ...EVER HAD TO GET MISSING PARTS FROM FUJIMI...
    Gentlemen, wondered if any of you have ever needed to request missing parts for a Fujimi kit, and how that went for you....I recently bought a stack of Fujimis off an ebay Japanese seller, and one was missing the bag for wheels, tires, axles, and a couple of small white parts. I ask because my emails to them off their site don't seem to send without kicking them back to me, so I wrote them and sent a copy of the instructions indicating the parts in question.....any opinions or war stories will better prepare me...lol.....thanks boys, the Ace...
