Default Diecast Airplane Store

Anybody order from these guys? I preordered the 100th anniversary BEA A319 in March and can't get hold of them.

Their email bounces and the phone number goes right to voicemail. Also annoying is they billed my credit card immediately even though it is a preorder.

If it's this one... yes.

I bought a Aer Lingus BAe/RJ a couple years ago and all went fine.

No that's Steve Howland's shop. Always had great service from him.

I have to say this is one of the first stores I go to when I am ready to buy. When I do email with a question I get a reply within 1-2 days max.

If you're referring to diecastairplane.com, I've purchased from them a number of times and it's always been a good experience. They've never billed my credit card for a pre-order until the model arrives and ships. I've even spoken to Steve once- seems like a good guy who really cares about his customers.

Yes we all agree that Steve is great. But I'm asking about a different retailer that I've not bought from before.

I think you are refering to diecastairplanestore.com (I'll call it DAS for short) who used to be called Diecast Airplane Shop. I once preordered some Gemini 200 models from them a couple years ago. Other US retailers began shipping their orders out weeks before DAS shipped theirs out. I got tired of waiting so I asked to cancel my order at which point they shipped the models the next day. I haven't used them since.

That's the one. Thanks for the info. I'm waiting for the IF 100th anniversary A319. But I don't think anybody has them yet.

If it's one in Charlotte NC area (Indian Trail) I have ordered from them, but was a few years ago. No issues. Had not ordered from them since, but rediscovered them so to speak when I checked a dormant email account and saw coupon from them. When reviewing site, realized they are operating out of location 10 min from me, and emailed recently to ask if any way to pick up order in person and avoid shipping. Never got a response. Odd, but from google it looks like a house, so maybe this is a side thing, and other stuff has impacted service. Wish I could help more.

I finally received the IF BEA A319, packed well and in good condition. So I'd order from them again.

Hello Braveheel,
Not sure why Google has that address for our business and shows that house but we are in the Indian Trail area. We do not have a storefront but we do offer free package pick up at the UPS Store in Indian Trail. Shoot us an email before you order and we will take care of you!

Regards,
Darius
