We just did a big order from ehobby. About $200 shipping. Redwolf was about $80. When you factor in the prices you'd pay in canada, it's fair. For instance, ehobby has like $25 CIRAS's, mark them up by 100% for S&H and it's still a good deal.
Ehobby came within a week or so. Redwolf was sent express - it got to customs in 3 days, through customs in 2 hours, and for the last three weeks has been "lost" by Canada Post. Not sure if we'll ever see that one again...hopefully we can work out a refund or something...not sure what to do if Canada Post loses a Hong Kong Post package that probably wasn't insured. It was worth $500.
