Default my view on aero 500/ aero classics

First of all i would like to thank the team of DAC/Wings900 for giving us this great media to share our interest. as an young aviation fan like many of you on this site, browsing this forums has become part of my life style. DAC/Wings900 is where i get first hand information of new releases also a valuable place to learn different aspects of the hobby form all parts of the world. How ever, i find one of the member of the aero 500/ aero classics family are making my experience on this site less desirable. i am shocked with the costumer service he presents to the customer, this is the first time ever i have seen a business leader arguing, some times even writing so disrespectfully back to he's customers and distributors who have supported his business into the success he has today.

Aero 500/aero classics has been the favourite manufacture of my model collection because of the high quality of their products, i has always looked at their product before any other manufacturers. after spending some time at different topics on all scales of the hobby. i have decided i will no longer purchase any more aero 500/ aero classics products due to their ways of communication to their customers. i have listed that member of this forums to my ignore list so i can continue enjoy my hobby without the frustration.


i'm do apologise if you find this thread pointless or it was very arrogant of me. i guess some people like brands that presents highest quality products regardless of the customer service, i think customer service are equally as important as the products of a brand. i personally would choose a product with expectable quality and a understandable customer service rather than a high quality product with an un-expectable customer service..

Happy New Years to you all and happy collecting!!

sueprnovae,
Dont take Andrew's rants personally. It took a while to figure out, but he's an OK guy. This site is a bit like a soap opera. If there's no drama, it becomes dull as drying cement. AK has tapped into a way to keep the buzz and spotlight centered around him - and his airplanes.

I think you are right, i love to see people's different views on the hobby. makes the site a more colourful place. How ever when a leader of a company disrespect his customer it becomes another story. i have never doubted Andrew's abilities to make a top quality model, but for example if you write a letter of complaint to Singapore Airlines regarding to their customer service and they replied your letter with insults. would you ever choose them to fly again? luckily companies such as Singapore airlines would never send you a letter with personal insults that's why they have been travellers top choice for many generations.

You're taking this too personally! Has he insulted you? I doubt it! This is all part of the fun and forum posts should not affect what you buy. Rise above it!

perhaps i did take this a bid too personal, how ever calling a post pointless and calling someone use to support his products shallow before even meeting them isn't exactly a compliment. and i thought part of the reason of the forum is to guide you into buying the product of your desire!

Hi supernovae, yes, please listen to Adrian's advice as he stated below. Cheers! T7

He posted a reply to a Western Model of mine:

Oh dear - how on earth can any manufacturer get the 'star and bar' and 'USAF' wing markings on the wrong wings? Also cheatline stripe should be BLACK, not blue. Corgi made this model in 1/144th, as a set with refuelling F-4 Phantom,which I'm quite happy with.

The posts or the insults, like SgtMoody said they can be funny at times.if Andrew is not the owner of aero 500 i probably would think his posts are very interesting and entertaining. But i am a big believer in customer service, i think a brands customer service and the product should be equally important. i was hoping Andrew could get the point of this post, and improve his ways of interacting with his customers.

and is it acceptable for a airline to present bad customer service as long as the travel agent shows great customer service?

I think the Travel Agent is showing great customer service towards you to entice you to buy your airline ticket(s) from them. Once they have met their objective = collecting your money; they consider themselves out of the picture at that point and will wish you a great trip, and to remember them next time you want to book airline/travel tickets in the future.

As far as the airlines are concerned; it all depends on what airline you've selected that will more or less determine your customer service experience. You might have picked a 4 or even a 5 star (skytrax rating) airline, but if some of the flight attendants are in a foul mood for your flight = your customer service may be negatively impacted.

I know that if a certain retailer or company does not satisfactorily meet my reasonable requirements = I go elsewhere.

well Put T7_4ever;!!
in the model world, a retailer acts as a travel agent. the model manufacturer are like an airline. customer service are expected for the both of them. aero500 has to improve the way they communicate with customers, until then i will have to fly with other company.

Always surprised to see so much wisdom flowing out of peoples arses when this is just little scale models. Sounds to me you need to spent a bit more time at the Hamilton Strip and less time glued to a diecast forum.

In spite of a few wankers above seeking attention, Aero500 will continue to release models on a limited basis to the market, and this next month will see a few more.

Stay tuned for the upcoming announcements!!

Do you contact Ford or the Ford dealership when your car breaks down?

Well that depends when you bought it and what the problem was.

My cousin bought a £30,000 Mercedes which soon after had a fault and it was taken into the dealership for repair, My cousin forgot his wallet so went to get it from his car and found the whole engine had been removed, When my cousin asked what the problem was he was told it was a small oil leak, My cousin being the No1 DAF truck mechanic in europe told them a oil leak didnt require a removal of the engine and he suspected something bigger must be the problem, He told them to keep the car, he wasnt going to accept it back.

He contacted a lawyer who contacted Mercedes in Germany who told him he could walk into the dealership and have any car he wanted at there expense.

He walked into the dealership and told them he would have the £55000 Mercedes in exchange, The dealership explained the fault was on a £30,000 car and the new car was £55,000. He told them Mercedes promised me any car in this showroom and i want that one.

The dealership was shocked and called Mercedes.

My cousin drove that £55,000 Mercedes out the garage.

No, but what i mean is that as soon as someone says something bad about Aero500 you get offensive very fast. And that is not a good way to get more customers. Calling someone a wanker is more likely to push them away from the company in question.

The original post was against me personally, not the product. He/she actually said good things about the product.
I do tend to respond in kind on personal remarks, including, but not limited to, referring to the poster as a wanker. There are other more flowery metaphors I could use, however this website would only display them as "*******" which serves no point; almost as pointless as this thread itself.

Still, i don't think it's a very good way to win customers. Let's say the situation was the opposite; i was the owner/manufacturer and you were the customer. If i called you a wanker or similar for saying something bad about me, would you still buy models made by my company?

I wouldn't be saying bad things about you or anyone else for no reason at all, so your point really can not be made.

To answer your question though, I have called the owner of a certain electronics discount store in the US and f-ing azzhole to his face, and he responded in kind. I still patronize that business, because, at the end of the day, the products they sell, are what I am looking for at the price I'm willing to pay.

Those who insult me on these forums, wouldn't have the bloody cojones to do it to my face, and I've got no problems putting them in their place.

If you noticed though, I did not give names in my examples, nor would I, on a public forum. That is the difference between me, and some of the wankers and schit disturbers who post on these forums.

Fair enough.

And much like you said about the electronics store, Aero500 sell what im looking for in some cases. So in the end, despite what i may have said in the past about boycotting them, i might buy some of the models made by them.

Mr Klein, i have removed you form my ignore list to see if any thing has changed from your perspective. clearly nothing has changed since the start of the thread. the whole point of this thread is to show my personal thoughts of areas you could improve on the branding of your company. clearly instead of taking this as a benefit to see the areas of improvements. you have both ignored the comment of your clients and have insulted them with inappropriate words. i believe this just shows the lack of professionalism and respect you have towards your loyal followers.

i value your pride and your enthusiasm towards the quality of your products. however no products are ever perfect, even for the real aircrafts them selves. although your brand has the tendency to show high standards of the finished products. there are the odds that even the best makes mistakes. i am sitting here with one of your product that suffers from failed quality control of your company. not to mention the zinc rot era which you blame the Witty Wings factory. every one makes mistakes some times i guess the importance of the customer service present in how you resolve the problem afterwards. and from what i have gathered your solution is to blame every one else instead of making an apology ..

I would suggest putting me back on your ignore list, and go blow it where the sun don't shine!!

You have never brought any claims forward to me, so how could you possibly know my resolution of such claims. The fact is, you don't!!
When you come whining onto a public forum, lecturing me, you will get my standard, and deserved response. You behave like an arrogant self-righteous prick, and you'll be replied to in such manner.
If you can't take the heat, then stay out of the kitchen!!
Carry-on!!

way before i started this thread i have posted a thread indicating the fault of my British Airways 777-300er. not once did i see and response from you. http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...trol-fail.html . the number of times you have used the words such as arrogant and self-righteous perhaps you should really be looking at the some of the things you have posted on this site.

Looks like you didn't get a response from ANYONE AT ALL, and the thread sunk to the bottom.
THAT is not a claim, nor something I even consider. Ever heard of email or PM?? That may get my attention, not some meaningless thread which sinks faster than the Titanic did.

Then you start this meaningless thread, and wonder why I hold only disdain for you?

If you don't like the way I handle the lemmings who have no regard for others, then you'd best put me on your ignore list.
Carry on!

i'm siting here laughing looking at the screen and laughing at your comment.

first of all, you quote "PM?? That MAY get my attention" if you ever had the intention of providing any customer service regarding to your products you would of demonstrated the willingness of doing so. regardless of what method we chose to contact you (not that there is any clear indication of contact details on your website).

second of all if you if you find this thread meaningless then why do you keep coming back to it?? if this thread is truly meaningless surely it wouldn't bother you to waste your time here. perhaps you are the one that needs to carry on.

third of all, by calling people who has different views on your products and the way you handle things ''LEMMINGS" are you applying the idea of total domination of this industry?

lastly, thank you for continuously making the point of this thread stronger, by demonstrating the exact kind of attitude i was talking about at the start of the thread.

Good, you continue laughing like a fool, and I'll continue with my life. I've given this idiotic thread much more attention than it deserves.

I guess success brings on animosity & jealousy! Too bad some people can't put those emotions to more positive uses than always trying to take potshots at me. I'm not going anywhere!!

G'day,

Children, children, children... I wish there were more of them on this site, so we could have a decent conversation occasionally... I'd hazard a guess that most members on this thread (and it's often the same trolls who keep popping up time and again across DA.C's forums) are no-bodies in real life (my generalised opinion), so feel the need to take aim at others in the shadows of the internet... Anonymous, except for a few courageous ones who use their own real names...

OK...

This rot has got to stop...

Any member is allowed to leave a comment, good or bad on any forum. As long as he/she sticks to the subject at hand and does NOT go off topic. By being a registered member on DA.C you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise. You are not to make, state or level derogatory statements, personal or otherwise, at another member.

According to the Rules:Offensive and inappropriate content:
We reserve the right to remove from the site any user-generated content deemed to be offensive or inappropriate in any way, and to suspend and/or delete without warning the account of any member of the site who uploads such content, in accordance with the terms of the member agreement.

Which translates to, you can state good or bad things about Aeroclassics the company as much as you like, you are not, however, to attack any member personally. To use an analogy stated in this thread, If Singapore Airlines gave you a crappy flight, you might complain to your travel agent or customer service, but would you contact the CEO, abuse him and then demand an apology..?

On this thread, there are members that express various opinions. However only one of them is then set upon by several of the members. Seems like a bit of 'sport', continually kick someone for their opinion, then stand back and wait for their reaction. Then report them. While some other members wait in the side-lines, circling, looking forward to the erupting malice.

There's a New Sheriff in town... play fair... or not... but be aware if you don't there is a good chance you'll be suspended or even banned from the site.

Go on... make.me.laugh - Lou

Amen to that! I've never seen any of the Aero500 line. Are they as good as I've heard? It's a bit hard to tell from this thread...
