Question Chris Foss Designs: Any vendors in Canada?

Question to anyone who is familiar with "Chris Foss Designs" models: Does anyone have experience with obtaining these models? Is there a Canadian importer, or is there a good foreign retailer who will ship to Canada without imposing extreme costs?

Just order it from the UK. British airmail is about twice the speed of sound!
You will be impressed.
PS. I would recommend a phone order....probably after midnight your time.

Hi,Try or Al's Hobbies ...Good luck. UK prices include 20% tax and you think 13% hst is steep you should get it uk tax free .

Re: Chris Foss Designs: Any vendors in Canada?

Most hobby shops in the UK are not set up to handle overseas orders. However, if you're semi-serious, why not contact Chriss Foss and see what arrangements can be made to become a dealer or just to order kits.


I used to act as an agent for the plans service of MAP (now Nexus) but could never get enough sustained business to really make it worthwhile. The same would apply for a lot of niche players.

BTW, had a Wot-4 design years ago -- picked it up from Sussex Model Center. While a good aerobatics trainer airplane, its not well known over here and the price on the kit put it almost $100 over the price of North American kits. Right now, the exchange rate would make it about $50 over similar kits, let alone ARFs and ARCs.
