David wrote me these days and informed me, that he unwrapped the pack and checked it for damage. Now he is searching a courier suits our needs best. He apologized for things are going slowly.
I have to say, no problems with him. It seems to me, that he is drowning in work and does his best.
I can confirm this.
I visited the proton props workshop recently and was there while your pack was being repackaged after being checked over.
David is absolutely up to his neck and working his ass off as a sole employee to get packs out to his customers as quickly as humanly possible.
Despite the fact that many of the parts that go into a build of this quality are increasingly difficult to come by or simply just take time to source and have delivered from the various locations around the world which they're purchased from.
Not to mention the sheer amount of time and effort it takes to construct a pack to the high specifications that he provides.
Having seen them in person, these pack commissions are built to an unprecedented level of finish, accuracy and attention to detail and that applies to both the Proton Props idealised shell based builds and the outstanding and insanely detailed Legacy based builds.
I get that his customers are anxious about extended wait times brought on by the extenuating circumstances that David has faced in recent times across supply issues and shipping delays, amongst others.
But what a lot of people who are quick to leap to conclusions may not be aware of, is that this level of detail and quality is usually only seen by some of the best builders in the community (who David can also be counted amongst) who would normally need to spend multiple years focused on one single pack to reach this level of finish with all of the part sourcing headaches that it brings, never mind achieving the same level across numerous packs, simultaneously as David is currently.
I'd be anxious too if i had dropped a large chunk of change on a pack and had to wait an extended period of time to receive it, but these particular packs are more than worth the wait and the asking price.
