Re: Japanese ZJ update
- I have seen the new ProZ freight sets in my local hobby store. Once
again, very nice. But, with the U.S. dollar taking a beating against
the Japanese Yen... I'm not touching them. I get a 15% discount at
the store, but that is not enough to off-set the exchange rate (at
least for me and my retirement income).
If anyone from the group wants me to pick up any of the sets for
them... I will do it at direct cost (meaning, I won't make money off
the transaction). You will have to agree to the exchange rate and
shipping is about $15.00. Please contact me directly, off this forum.
I offer this for any one that does not want to deal with one of the
Japanese on-line dealers. From my understanding, no one has had any
problems with them... but, in the past, a few group members have
rather delt with me for a more personal touch, than with the on-line
Since I'm not currently employed... I have lots of free time to
answer e-mails and visit the Post Office.
The store staff has been unable to tell me anything about any
delivery dates for the C and D add-on modules.
