Question UK Review/testimonial planestore.co.uk/planecrazy?

Has anyone bought successfully from these websites before?
I’ve just stumbled upon them today for the first time ever and was wondering if they’re genuine.
There’s no address, just a mobile phone number and email address and so I’m a little suspicious.
Thanks for the advice.

I ordered 2 models from them and no problems. Incidentally, while visiting friends in Penarth last week (I am from California) I decided to visit your beautiful city for the day. I went to Antics Bristol and bought 3 models there.

Thanks for letting me know: he's already replied to me this morning so I shall go ahead and buy from him.
It always surprises me a bit when people visit Bristol, but I suppose it is rather blessed by its natural geography as well as the Georgian and Victorian architects.
I'm not sure who did the most damage to the area of the city that Antics is in: the Blitz destroyed it during the War, but the 1950s architects who re-built it weren't very kind to it either!
Antics are not bad, but one of the best in the south is Aviation Retail Direct: they've got two shops near London's Heathrow Airport.

I think your city, Bristol, is a beautiful city. In fact, I told myself if I get to go back there, I will stay at least 2 days to really enjoy it.
Yes, Antics is not that bad at all. In fact, I have bought from their Cardiff store models that I never knew existed. The same goes true with Antics in Bristol where I recently acquired among others, a 1/200 Dragon XB-35 flying wing for 25 pounds. I have been to the ARD near Heathrow but not the one in Hillingdon which I believe has a collection of classic airliners/aircraft. And with the taxes I have to pay this year, I am glad I did not go there!

Yes Planecrazy is genuine and have bought a few models from them including this one

http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...wattisham.html

They are good for hard to find models, however they charge the top end of the price... really a case of how desperate you want the model vs waiting it out on ebay for a lower retail.
