Wow, has Graham Howard of Brunell Steam Model Engineering been resurrected?

About seven years ago, I bought a complete set of everything for the Fowler ploughing engine from Graham Howard at Brunell, costing £2,300.

I assume this is the same one.

I am still waiting for most of the castings plus all the other odds and ends, strakes, rims etc to be delivered.

The said Graham Howard ignores phone calls, emails and posted letters. Just how do you communicate with someone like this.

It would be really nice, even now, to get my order completed.

Would Graham Howard of Brunell like to comment on this forum?

He has commented in the past but I would not hold your breath

You are not the only one with this problem, I can assure you.

If I lived nearer I would have been knocking on his door by now.

I suspect you will end up writing it off as I have done.

He must be communicating with someone.

Graham occasionally makes some vague promissory noises but my experience is of someone who simply fails to deliver.

Sadly, these problems go back a decade or more:

Given all the bad press and reports of failure to deliver over many years, by many people, I'm astounded someone has not taken legal action against this joker to recover their money, or at least reported the incident to the Ministry of Trade / Trade relations dept of the government. If the proof of payment and the documentation of the attempts at communications are in order there should be no trouble to get legal action, I expect.

I'm locking this thread to protect people from making statements that might get them in trouble.
