That was the office of RCM when they were still in business. The woman that handled the plans orders for them bought the rights to them from RCM. The last time I ordered plans from RCM Plans, more than a year ago, the return address was Gold Beach, Oregon, as listed on their website:

You are correct. Very correct. I think that the lack communication from RCM-Plans is to bad. there is bunch of us hoping for the best where RCM is concerned.

I'm glad I found this thread, I was about to order a set of plans from RCM for one of the scimitar planes. Guess I'll have to go on a hunt now.

I wish I had found this thread before I ordered mine. I've actually started building it using a plan I downloaded from the internet. I printed it in sections, trimmed and taped them together. I've done this before and it is workable, but a pain.

I've not ordered any plans from RCM and have no intention of doing so.

Are there any RCG members in or close to the RCM plans office that can go there and wring some necks? Maybe if enough dispute their charges through their CC company, the CC companies will start a lawsuit. At least RCM plans would be shut down to not steal any more money from folks. It would be a great loss though to loose all the plans.

I still haven't given up hope. I have three plans order and it hasn't been that long ago. Just like the last message if anyone receives what they ordered please post it. That way we all can get a time line since the 6 to 8 weeks rule has not been a reality. I have read they wait till they have enough orders then make run. I now don't believe that. I believe something has happened to this company. I just hope they can recover from what ever it is.

Card charged (~150!!) 10/10/12.....no response to emailS or phone calls. I don't know if the postmaster in Gold Beach Ore. will give out the name and street address of the box holder but the PO box they use is still active. Maybe someone local can file a request for this from the postmaster.

Annual sales exceeds half a million? Oh boy! I figure I'm screwed but I sure hope that I am wrong. I never waited more than 8wks or so in the years past. I kinda worry that someone dropped dead and a server is merrily debiting cards.

Incidentally, check your CC accounts. It looks like mine was never "charged", although a payment was posted, according to my CC company.
I suspect this is the loophole the jerks that run this "business" are using to avoid any legal action.

I would seriously like to tell this guy in person what I think of him.
He is obviously NOT a modeler!

I would love to partially fund you, Andy.

R,
