      Hi guys,

      Just wondering if anyone has dealt with this guy in Brazil?
      https://modelarstwoalexander.auctivacommerce.com


      I placed an order for 3 decals and only got one.I tried to email him but it bounced back.
      This is the email that I have: airlinerdecals@yahoo.com

      Anyone have any different contact info?

      Thanks

      Cheers

      Hi Andrew,

      this is the old story of "Brasil Decals" and/or "Giodecals".
      He offers some nice decal schemes, but his reliablity is everything from 100% to 0%.
      Many people lost a lot of money with this guy and the quality of his decals is also very different. Sometimes quite okay and sometimes useless and inacurate.
      I would never recommend to buy from him. I had luck multiple times and received what I had ordered, but also lost money a few years ago.

      Greetings Daniel

      Have fun! Life is short enough.

      I had decent dealings with them. I ordered 2 sheets but because of postal issues in this pandemic, the decals were never sent. Money returned to my PayPal account.

      I have ordered and received two sets with them over the last few years. I guess I have been one of the lucky ones. The are a bit pricey but they were the only choice for a Asiana 747-400 in the newer livery. The quality looks pretty good. The issue appears to be getting them in your hands.


      Good luck,

      Mark

      Do a forum search to read some "history". I searched for Brasil decals and found complaints going back to 2010 about orders and missing decals.

      Hi Andrew,

      Try these guys. I have not gotten anything from them but they are active on this site and appear to have done everything you might want.

      Good Luck,

      The original "owner" of Brazil Decals lived in Brazil , but he wasn"t Brazilian ; he left this country with dozens of misteries ,and a lot of serious modellers lost money with him.

      Yes, he changed his name to Giodecals , problems continued - he has been always remembered here, in our modellers groups, as a strange and slippery person

      The "original" owner? This suggests that ownership has changed at some point. Is that what you meant?
      Or is it still the same Chris/Gio/whatever running the company? Please clarify.
