Shawplan detailing kits - problems sourcing

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Shawplan are still trading? I've tried emailing (some time ago) and have phoned on numerous occasions but although the number rings it's never answered.

 

To add to my woes the majority of the Shawplan detailing parts seem to be out of stock everywhere.

 

I'm after the "Extreme etchings" Class 44/45/46 roof fan and grille for an oo gauge 'old' Bachmann peak.

 

Any help would be appreciated sourcing this or an alternative if such a thing exists!

 

Many thanks,

 

Mike

I am sure I have seen them at a show earlier this year. Ally Pally in April most likely.

I need to spend around £100 on bits with them but keep getting no response.

 

Does anyone here know him personally and give him a prod to take my order?

 

Thanks

Basically Brian is a one man band. 

 

However I will say my missus provided the solution, I wanted an order from shawplan. and the missus basically spams my phone when she wants something which I find hugely annoying and I answer to shut her up.

Not that I condone this but 2 emails a day for 3 days and Brian answered !! But his service is second to none

I believe he should be at Ally Pally this weekend.  That will probably mean he is busy getting ready this week but if you are going to the show, a useful opportunity to see him in person.

 

I've got a list ready...

Pray tell how on earth did you manage that little trick? I’ve been married just over thirty years and wouldn’t dare attempt such a thing :scared:

Unfortunately the only reliable way is to buy off his stall at an exhibition. He will be at Derby this weekend I believe.

Ah, you aren’t aware of rule #1 of married finances then? There’s her money and our money, never any “ his” money :biggrin_mini2:

Over 5 weeks and not done anything with cheque.

 

Need to find alternate suppliers now, been trying for 2 to 3 years, and no luck.

Did you send the cheque by recorded delivery? Any way of checking it has been delivered and signed for?

 

Just a thought.
