Where do you get your stuff?

Postby ConducTTor » Fri Jan 20, 2012 5:11 am

Just curious where everyone gets their models from.

I order all Tillig and Roco from Euro Train Hobby. Kuehn and spare parts from Modellbahnwelt24, and buy out of production models on Ebay and tt-board.

The US specific stuff comes from wherever I can find it.

Hmmm... some stuff from ETH (Roco, Peresvet so far, also if I get some TT-Modell or Tillig stuff it'll be through them). TT-board and our buy/sell/trade section has got me a few BTTB items I've needed. When I get around to getting some of the Russian small-series models I've been eyeing, it'll be of course from Russia.

Still need to find a source for Herpa, and when I get around to it, from smaller Czech and German manufacturers, it'll probably be direct...

Same as ConducTTor for US stuff...

As for me I buy Russian and European stuff everywhere. :)
In "Semaphore" or "Modell-Express" shops, "Leib-Company" or "Modelldepo"...

As for US stuff - from Ebay, or directly from manufacturer (Gold Coast, Mini-Things, PVM)

Unfortunately I can't order anything from Shapeways - they do not ship to Russia.
But my sister lives in France, so maybe I'll order shipping to France and get the order there.

Try some Czech e-shops.
For example: http://www.hobby-shop.cz/ or http://www.happymodel.cz/

Let me know if you want anything from there (regardless if it's mine or not) and I'll see if I can help you out.

Hello! I have a few for you. Please try, www.puerner.de (Internet), new stuff, Tillig, Beckmann TT, Roco TT, Piko TT, PMT, Modist, Kuehn, Kres, etc (new stuff: very good prices), the gentleman's name is Thomas Puerner, been dealing with him for over 10 years. Here's another shop that offers a big selection of new and secondhand-like new, but clean (up to 30% off and minus 16% VAT german tax), the name of the shop is "Michas Bahnhof", the owner's name is Micha. This shop you have to go in person since he does not list all his items on his web site. The address is: Nurnberger Strasse 24a, 10789 Berlin am Tauentzien (by Zoologisher Garten), all scales, all makes, American, European. Another one that is also over the Internet: http://modellbahn-Discount.de, this one I've never tried it before, I suggest it is worth a try. This shop also over the Internet: http://www.lokpavillon.de/shop/, I've tried before but a lot of back orders and they are very expensive, I think they are direct suppliers from the manufacturers, the delivery takes up to 3 months. This one I've never tried it before: http://www.modellbahnshop-sebnitz.de/, very nice web site but I think they prefer bank transfers not credit cards, or if you have a chance to go there in person, I think this store is owned by the Tillig company. I hope you find these very helpfull.
Best wishes.

Lots of places. I have purchased from those mentioned including Eurotrain hobby, modelahnwelt and lokpavillion all of whom are helpful but some items listed can take months due to being advanced notice ( yes my little class 246 loco I mentioned a while back included finally arrived). Also from the Australian suppliers such as Orient Express (http://www.orientexpressmodels.com.au/) for Tillig (only track kept in stock but very helpful in ordering parts) and the listed Piko supplier for Australia - definitely not recomended.

On the net I purchase from an eBay shop called "kokologgos-schatzkiste" who sells second hand items and some interesting electronic parts at a reasonable price.

I would love to find a dealer who speaks English and accepts PayPal/Credit cards who stocks some of the more interesting items from manufacturers such as Karsei and TT club or trams, decals. I often look at the photos on
http://galerie.tt-pics.de/index.php and wonder where they get the items.

My pet hate at the moment is browsing eBay and seeing some very interesting items that are listed as not available to Australia or payment is via bank deposit only and postage is incredibly high.

regards
Graeme

One more place I used to purchase from a few years back (be aware of back orders!), another website on the INTERNET, it is called: Modellbahn Walter Licht (www.modellbahn-licht.de). I suggest you should try it, but the best one is PUERNER.
