Default Tango Papa decals?

I placed my first order ever with TP decals on 8-19 but still haven't gotten them. TP won't communicate either. Any one know if there's a problem with TP?

Thanks.

I've communicated with Tom several times earlier this summer, to make sure he was still offering decals. (His website was so outdated I was not sure!). He responded via email very quickly both times. You might want to call him.

He still advertises in Sport Rocketry, so I know he wants to sell product. Perhaps he is out of town, but it is concerning since you ordered a month ago.

He is a commercial pilot. He used to do all his communicating with customers when he was home between flights. I assume he still does it the same way. Give him a week or so. To my knowledge he's never stiffed a single customer.

OK, I'll give it some more time.

We've worked with Tom many times, even provided originals for his data base for several oop kits and he's done custom decals for us as well.

I don't remember what it is but for several years he had a "season" and then he had some off time for a month or two. I don't know if he's still doing that but it might be that.

He is an airline pilot and they also have a cake business unless things have changed over the last few years.

Default Tango Papa hiatus?

I have dealt with Tom several times in the past with great results. We exchanged several emails over the summer but I have heard nothing from him since placing an order on August 24. I hope all is well with him and that this is a temporary situation.

Smile Tango Papa Rematerializes

I heard from Tom shortly after the last post. He informed me that he had accidentally sent a couple orders to wrong addresses. He immediately sent me a fresh set of decals which I received two days later.

I finally got my order this week. The decals are very nice--bit DANG they took a long a long time!
