I have an open and outstanding order with Dave at Proton Props so wanted to give a bit of ‘feedback’.
I’ve collected Props for years, I’m a bit of a snob and I don’t like cheap or inaccurate stuff. I collect Star Wars mainly and I know the owner of Proton Props (Dave) is also a Star Wars fan and so we have seen each other post in SW groups. He therefore will know what a snob I am for posh props.
Anyway, 12-18 months ago pre COVID19 I made my first ever pack myself (before Dave existed) but due to COVID had to sell.
A year later the situation for me changed and I could afford one again. This time though I wanted a GOOD pack. Like all bells and whistles, metal parts, vintage components, pop mech etc. All the bells.
I approached Dave because id seen photos of his work and also because I knew he had an eye for detail.
After some messages I sent him a few thousand and placed an order. Given my attitude for posh props and stuff that really fits the bill, I considered a few people and the only one I felt would offer me something that met or exceeded my expectations would be Dave. That should say a lot about his work.
Ever since, every single decision, he messages me and sends photos. He doesn’t do anything without consulting me.
His work ethic can’t be faulted, his attention to detail and professionalism either.
Whilst I don’t have my pack yet and it recently entered its build phase after all of the obscure parts I ordered arrived, I’ve been nothing short of impressed and thoroughly excited. Thus far based on the comms ive had and pics I’ve recieved, it’s been a fantastic experience and if the pack is as good as the photos look and comms are, I’m in for an absolute treat.
I’d recommend Dave again …
