      Are there any online retailers in the U.S. who actually have Roden 720B kits in stock, ready to ship? AHS says it's out of stock, Omnimodels says "order pending" and Hobbylinc says "in stock"...but when added to cart it becomes a back order.

      It seems the primary (only?) current sources for Roden 720B kits are located in Ukraine. How is their service to U.S. addresses? Which one(s) are most recommended for U.S. customers?

      Thank you.

      Why does it have to be in the US? You can often find them on eBay from abroad for less money, even with shipping, than what you might buy them for here. And, they typically actually *have* them, which is a bonus.

      It doesn't have to be -- U.S. is my preference. Also wondering which of the overseas retailers are good/better/best for U.S. customers to buy from, if per chance some here have purchased from sources abroad. Most of the Ukraine retailers even accept payment in U.S. dollars.

      Maybe this will be an option:
