Iíve just checked his Facebook page, it looks like theyíve had some problems this week regarding messages not getting through. The prop shop team were definitely still operating two days ago according to the Facebook page.
He is going to the Harrogate show this weekend so maybe that could explain some things but donít know why the phone number wasnít recognised unless itís changed recently. I usually order online and they arrive less than a week later.

Prop Shop has been covered at length in the past, in short, his customer service is either good or dire, no in between. Iíve been waiting on a prop three weeks now, Iíve had them turn up in a couple of days. End of last year a mate had two props arrive that heíd been waiting a year for.


Seems to me if he has something in stock heíll post it next day, if he has to make it youíll be waiting a while

If you know  the process to make a cast prop then you will know it takes quite a while, it is not a five minute job. nemesis

My experience has always been very positive. I recently ordered 4 props and I was advised it would take a couple of weeks as they had to be made and this was entirely accurate and they all arrived and were perfect.


In my opinion they are the best model props you can purchase and have an excellent range and style to choose from.


Cheers

I fully understand that things are made to order therefore might take some time, I've ordered two 4 inch shafts kind of stuff that I thought might on the shelf, but, it looks like I'm going to have to be a bit more patien int.
