Question: Has anybody had any dealings with Latvian resin aero kit maker Croco? They have an interesting line of small craft, including the Iomax Archangel and the Aero Commander 500 series, which they push on eBay. I purchased one item through a retailer and, though I found the actual item to be overpriced, my dealings were amicable. However, prior to, and during, that exchange, I also opted to purchase another Croco kit directly from the maker. This was a mistake. The item became "lost in the mails" at a time when the USPS was in something of an uproar. When it didn't show, I inquired two weeks after its last estimated date of arrival. What I got was the most unfriendly and unprofessional set of communications. I took it to eBay and eBay researched it and refunded my purchase costs. Then, more than two weeks after that, the kit shows up in the mail, and the unprofessional communications restart.
So....I understand if you want to purchase Croco kits, because they have some interesting subjects that, for some strange reason, nobody else produces. But, if you must, don't buy it direct from Croco. My dealings with them have soured me on any and all products they produce and sell. They are a most unpleasant group of 'entrepreneurs' to deal with. I can only hope that some other maker will commit to producing these kits.
