Towers prices are Way Cheap.
They Ship internationally, and will Fedex if asked.
Here in my town, there is NO LHS(well there is, but its all Slot cars or
Toys R Us).
There website with prices is great and better then almost anything Going.
When I'm state side, all I hear from the LHS's is that Towers is Killing the

the WEB, phone them... There are REAL people working there, explain the
problem and they will find a solution. (Like they did with me and Fedex...
Fedex is not even listed as a option on there Website, I Build me orders
then FAX them it, with Detailed instructions to Fedex)
Fedex has there own Customs Agents here that are quick and don't use your
package for a papars weight.
Last order was recieved in 2 weeks (but it was only an envlop)

They could have just said to all, "Oh sorry people, Shipping costs are up,
you have to pay more" , and made more money on the shipping little stuff to.
