I order most of my plans through the AMA website. It takes 2 days and they are in my hands!!!
Not to mention, if you are a member, you can get a second copy for half price.

I agree ClipperBill, hopefully we are wrong about getting taken and our winter projects can start real soon.
About 3 minutes ago, I was finally able to speak to the kind women at RCMPlans. Just an fyi, there server was hit by a trojan and messed a few things up. She found my order in there system and said it will ship this week and she will be sending "a few other goodies" with it Wonder what the goodies will be? I feel like a kid on Christmas eve!

Thanks, Joshua. I followed your example and also called the nice lady at RCM Plans. My warm and fuzzy feelings are back towards them. I got the same response about receiving my plans and extra goodies. I'm a happy camper again!

I would love to own all the rights to RCM's plans catalog! I've got a nice collection, but not nearly THAT nice!

And still waiting....wish I hadn't ordered from RCM even if there are a few goodies in the package It's been two weeks since the kind lady told me that my plans would be in the mail and what do ya know, still no plans! BTW, nobody answers the phone at RCM anymore, you just get a machine making an apology to you.

It's because of horse s**t circumstances like this which entice people to share plans with the building community even though it may play against the so-called copyright BS. It is a shame because RCM has a wonderful selection of plans that will be for naught if they are going to start treating customers like this. Whats a scratch build modeler to do???? Seems easy to me, share them if you have them I guess.

This is where I have been looking for and sharing plans. Hate to take business away from a cottage industry, but I like to look for alternative methods...

I got my shipment notification today so I'm happy. Stuff happens, so I'm going to chalk this one up as an anomaly and will probably order from RCM Plans again at some time.

Glad to hear that Bill, I ordered Sept 25th sooooooo, hopefully mine will along shortly as well. I, however, will not order from them again as I would rather take my chances on a skewed set of drawings from a lesser known source or take a ripped digital format to the print shop.
Maybe I need to learn "patience"?

I received my plans last week, along with a $5 merchandise credit for future plans, an RCM patch and decals so I'm happy now.

After a month of waiting I sent an e-mail - no response.
I called and got their recording dated in October and left a message - no response.
I called my bank and had them reverse the CCard charges - still no response from them.

Is anyone alive at RCM Plans?
Please tell us what is happening, what are your plans for the future?
I am willing to buy from you but I'm not willing to lend you my money interest free.

Thanks,

Ahh-Man-did you read any of the posts before yours, in this thread?

This little old lady is trying to run her business TO HELP US OUT,and got hit by a TROJAN..

A lot of information was lost or garbled.

Why not just try again, now that they're delivering ,and cut her a break?

The OP got his order recently,and seems happy enough.

Give it another shot.....the results could be better this time
