ACT Me-163 sources in the UK?

Could some of our UK brethern let me know of stocking dealers over there that have the good price (10-12 quid) on the Me-163.

Some of my co-workers are going over for Air Tattoo (not me, darn it!)this summer and they are willing to bring me back a couple or three, if I can get some shipped to them at their hotel in Cambridge or Coventry, or find a dealer somewhere between Heathrow and and Coventry (more or less) where they could stop by and purchase them.

A cursory forum search here did not find any UK stocking dealers listed. One with an email address or a website would be best, if at possible.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

You could email Steve Webbs Models and Hobbies at stevewebb@steve-web.demon.co.uk - they had the ACT Me163 Komets in stock a little while ago and will ship to their hotel.

Or given your pal's likely point of embarkation you should try
www.westlondonmodels.co.uk - West London Models is a five minute taxi ride or twenty minute walk from Heathrow Terminal 1 and is the best electric specialist dealer in the UK. Might be worth warning them beforehand and even if they don't have any in stock they might be able to rustle a few up for you.

or www.alshobbies.co.uk - I got one there last summer.

They are usually 11.99 for the kit.

You could try Inwoodmodels.co.uk as well. Incidentally. I have one of these kits. It's sat to one side waiting to be built. The problem is that I don't really have appropriate batteries for it. I have 9.6v 800Ma Ae cells, when I need AR. AE is too heavy, really.

Still, I will get round to it, sooner or later. Depends on how long my TwinJet lasts!

Many thanks, gentlemen. If I can't work it out with one of the dealers mentioned, I will come back here and try again.
