Well I don't really want too but he wasn't answering emails etc. As soon as PayPal made contact he mailed me.

The thing that gets me, is on the website the part is "In Stock" not "Made to Order" which is fact it is. Very unprofessional and goes agaianst every review on here which is nothing but praise.

Also if I get my money back what alternatives are out there ????

Cheers

I know I had a bit of trouble getting in touch with them I found the best way to get a reply was contacting them via the link on their site.

True that. I've not seen any other topline kits other than the ones from Verkerk. Verkerk warns against buying cheap knock-offs, but honestly I've never seen those anywhere. You might try reaching out to some of our skilled forum members to see if they can custom fabricate you a kit. Some of the work they do is pretty amazing! Probably won't be cheap, but then neither is the Verkerk stuff! You could also just wait. That sucks, but maybe patience is the best thing. Verkerk did post a warning on their site about the delays and maybe they are just experiencing growing pains. If that's the case, then your order will eventually get filled.

I agree though. Companies should at least communicate delays and such directly to customers, especially if payment has already been made. Kinda' the same thing that happened to me with Topcad.

Another week on and still nothing.

It has now been 9 weeks since I placed my order. Totally shocking and very disappointed X( X(

Does anyone out there want to make me a Topline Conversion ? :-\

Dear International hobby friends

Scamming lowlife people, actively steeling our Verkerk Modelbouw business interest sometimes. They are making copies of our respected special parts, a fact like this just makes us sick!

Reckless and negligent these scammers are selling bad quality copies via international Ebay.de sites pretending it's theirs! …..How low can you go?...........
Last week a Mutual RC-Friend in Germany, pointed us out, a sick mind selling copies on Ebay.de again.
This time our driver and co driver figures are copied!

Time for an offensive action? Yes friends indeed!!
We do ask our International and respected hobby friends to buy these un authorized copies on Ebay.de but NEVER pay!!
You just claim not to make your payment because of bad quality matters!!
Guaranteed .....this won't less very long because even lowlife scamming people do learn from their mistakes fast, especially when they are cut by there own knifes.

Below you’ ll find the link to the mentioned Ebay.

Thanks for that but there again is he any better ? Had my money for 9 weeks and nothing.

At the moment if a cheap copy does the job I will go with it. Least they can supply and post on time.

Also I have seen the copies on UK website ebay item 181218333579 but he doesn't have any left at the moment.
