Not sure if anyone's ever ordered from them, but they are awesome!!!!  Been a few years since my last order (was still into Macross back then), but placed an order for the resin 1/700 USS Alaska, and it arrived today.  I forgot how quick these guys are!

Big time props to HLJ!  And a huge recommendation for anyone looking for that really rare object you know exists somewhere in Japan.

They can be a bit on the expensive side (depending on exchange rates), but they are a lot faster than they used to be.

Mega-thumbs up!!!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Also a reminder for anyone attending SMW at Telford they are taking pre-orders for delivery at the show.
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


I used to use HLJ a lot, but not in the last few years. I always found them quicker and cheaper than some UK based dealers. Also on the one occasion there was a mistake with my order it was solved quickly and efficiently. Highly recommended.


Very good firm to deal with, I've used them quite a bit for SF3D stuff  ;D

I just found this.  It's not strictly a whiff, being one of those "prototypes that never saw combat", but it could lead to so much more.

They are very useful for stuff like a lot of the Hasegawa specials that don't make it out of Japan.  However the plummeting pound has made them not as attractive as in years gone by.
