Default Don smith 1/4 scale Corsair

I really do not understand what is going on at Precision Kit Cutters ?
I ordered a 1/4 scale Don Smith Corsair 3 months ago , paid for a full kit , plans , cowl ,
and canopy. It has been 12 weeks and they have yet to ship this bloody kit . Every time we call them the answer is 2 weeks
this is just truly crap. Now the holidays are coming and I wanted to start while I had 2 weeks off but I doubt it will arrive this week.
Is this the norm for these guys ? I am extremely disappointed in their service

Oh no. I ordered a Don Smith Tucano in early November and Larry at Precision Cut Kits gave me an ETA of mid December. I emailed him (them) last week and he said it would probably be the end of December before it was ready. I kinda expected that ... but 12 weeks? That's a little ridiculous.

If I didn't have other planes to fix I would be chomping at the bit to get started on my Don Smith Tucano.

Well here we are 2 days past Christmas and still no kit. This is absolutely bull.
Here we have a company that took full payment on this for a kit, plans, cowel and canopy some 14 weeks ago and I have yet to get my hands on anything. What kind of business is this guy running here.
Larry I hope you are reading this because I am god damn pissed off hounestly how long does it take to cut a kit.
I cut freaking full kitchens on my CNc in approx 2 hours

Complaining, here, will do no good. Contact your credit card company, Pay Pal, etc, and take some action.
