Folks:

Rob Stevens over at West Coast Hobbys in beautiful Port Alberni, BC, is selling the SH72095 B-18 Bolo for $20.00 CDN. There is another ~20% off for the US folks via the currency exchange.  I just bought 2.



Rob says:

I have a more of these in inventory than I want  if anyone drools on your kits, tell them to send me a note “Carl Sent Me” and I’ll do the same deal .. Cheers   Rob
