A rather lengthy review for a site downunder but it has some nice features. Other sites may have similar features I don't know, but what I like about BNA is their pricing seems to be consistently good. And I hear the prices you guys pay in the UK for kits and I think I'm doing ok here. So it might be worth you looking at a comparison, even with the extra shipping. They do ship internationally with several shipping options.

Anyway. The site itself is typically extensive, and nice to navigate. And they have an excellent wish list system where you can have as many as you like and sort them out in priority, if that's your thing.

They have a countdown clock to their next dispatch which is a bit gimmicky but nice to know if you want so place an order that it will be sent same day.

I placed one order late at night, the next morning I found their paint section and made a new shopping cart and added some Mr Metal paints to a new order. Because the second order was under their free shipping mark I asked in the comments if they could combine with the first order, they did. In fact I don't think I even had to ask they would've anyway.

I had 46 items in total and it was picked, packed and sent that day. It took 4 working days to get to me (I live in rural/outback Australia). And it was packed magnificently. Hang on I have a picture. lol

I had taken the top layer off, mainly flat stuff like packets of PE, magazine etc. Every glass bottle was individually wrapped in bubble wrap. The outer box is extremely strong, I will reuse it as a moving box no problem (fill it up with crockery it'll take it. lol) And every item was checked off and present.


They have GREAT armour specials. I picked up 4 kits from them the prices were just too good, here's a christmas list if you want to have a look:

(1 aussie dollar is 0.53 UK pence at the minute)

BNA will be my first port of call if I need anything my LHS doesn't supply. Excellent online shopping experience all round.

I deal with BNA all of the time and I'm here in the US. Their prices are very good and Anna is always a pleasure to deal with. She's prompt and always makes me feel BNA appreciates my business. Only down side is waiting for my order to travel half way around the world. OK scientists, you already gave us a Star Trek communicator, when are you going to finish the transporter?  lol

Ah cool, an endorsement from the other side of the world! They are still my first port of call. Haven't found anyone better yet. [smile]

These are my main shopping dudes. They have a vast range and unlike some shops most of it is in stock. Prices are good and you can also choose which type of postage you want, normal, economy, express courier etc
