    I'd say ebay and Hobby Link Japan. You can get most of the kits on ebay for next to nothing. And for the ones that Ebay doesn't have, HLJ will most liely have them.

    Sorry, but those have been out of production for quite some time. Ebay and the secondary market are going to be your best bet unless you find them in some local hobby shop.... doubtful though. Just be diligent with checking on ebay and the other secondary market sources that are out there.... you could also put a WTB thread in the Junkyard once you have enough privledges...

    Try here. You will have to sign up to even look at the threads but you may find what you are looking for. Just start a WTB thread in the BUY/SELL forum.

    Propcollector is asking for sources for construction of a STUDIO SCALE TIE Bomber...;)

    Anyone know of any of the required kits he'll need or where to buy Plastruct and Evergreen sheet?

    I'll go first.

    Right to the source for Plastruct...

    And....

    Right to the source for Evergreen styrene supplies.

    Propcollector, try using the board search function for any TIE bomber threads. I'm pretty sure there's one or two on this board somewheres. :)

    One of my scratchbuilding projects is a studio scale tie bomber. Alot of the kit parts that I'm using came from model kits that I purchased off of Ebay. This would be a good place to start your search, Propcollector.
