    Hi all,

    I am dabbling in card modeling again after a 2.5 year hiatus. It seems that many online stores I used to frequent have gone belly up. Where does one buy high end card models in 2010, especially aircraft from the likes of GPM and Halinski? Preferably, I would like to find a store that offers the latest models, laser cut formers, wheels, and canopies, but with reasonable shipping to the US.

    gpm.pl still offers a full range of card models and upgrades, but their shipping charges to the US often exceed product cost. papermodelstore.com still offers quick service (placed and received an order in 4 days) and meets most of my criteria, but they no longer stock current aircraft models from GPM and Halinski.

    Also, is ModelArt still around? Who sells ModelArt kits these days?

    Thanks,

    -Doug

    Hey Doug,
    I like paper model store. Since PMI is slow getting back up I've been ordering from Poland for Halinski.

    Search for 'ML Card Models' and you'll find ModelArt.
