Juweela of Germany has released a nice 1/32nd to 1/35th set of 500 light-red clay bricks that are strong and solid and appear uniform with sharp corners and edges.

I don't understand what the problem is..!! You just order them on-line from anywhere in the world!
I order things from Australia or the US continuously and it works perfectly well!!!
There are no language barriers either as english happens to be THE vehicular medium!

Sorry! Their website was in German. I didn't see an English translation. I also Googled Juweela and didn't come up with any alternative sources for ordering.

Plus, I'm still a little skittish when it comes to ordering stuff online, doubly so if it's from "across the pond"
Thanks for the info!

I order from around the world. No problems if you pay by credit card or PayPal. Don't let irrational fears keep you from getting the kits, accessories, tools and other goodies you need.

You can also make your own bricks with a mold from J's World. Just use spackling compound or plaster tinted with brick red acrylic paint.

I can only agree with Bill!
There is nothing wrong or especially dangerous with ordering on the web. Paypal has never let me down, and I am ordering for so many years already!
Shops/websites selling on-line commonly offer english as main language, Your problem with the Juweela site came from the fact that you cannot order directly from them!!!

In our small hobby, with the plethora of small "niche" producing firms, it is only natural that they prefer on-line business to setting up a net of distributors!

Better get on board!! Or else you can always do what we did 40 years ago.....scratch as scratch can!!
