    What is wrong with Westbourne Model Centre, I placed an order with them on 2nd January 2016, I appreciate that they have just moved across the road into new premises, I have emailed the three times with no answer I have tried to phone them more times than I can remember with not one call answered, It appears that they are good at taking our money but not very good at Delivering the goods or even responding to emails, and yet they keep advertising in the magazines. Has anyone else had problems with this company.
