Well here's an optimistic one. Looks as tho it may be delivered in a Rolls Royce too.

Well the model may be great but he is a lousy photographer

Could it be tat he is offering a "Copper Bottomed guarentee"?

Well, I'm also a Rolls-Royce engineer of 40 years standing but I'm no better than an average builder And I used to count down any potential graduate or under-grad trainee at interview if they thought we made cars.

That's another eBay advert that tells you nothing of value apart from some badly posed pictures. No mention of the engine type, size or manufacturer (though it looks like a four stroke silencer) and it gives no indication of the wing span.

I'd take a bet that it gets zero bids even though it looks like a nicely built model.

...not to speak of the fact that it was built by a BMFA member!

It says OS Fourstroke, no size, though the model is 64 inch span so I'd guess at a .90 and apparently Futarba servos and RX

Why would a 'no expense spared commissioned build' have the panel lines drawn on in black ink?

At that price I'd want all the copper pans as part of the deal!

No guns! In fact a very noticeable lack of detail. Paint edge looks a bit rought round the edges of the tailplane and the finish on the fin is not really metallike.

As an average nicely made model,fine! as a specially commissioned price unlimited model. No. I don't think so.

If it's such a "no expense spared" model why has it got the silencer stuck out the bottom? Definitely a club standard model. Just because the builder is a BMFA member who happens to work for Rolls Royce that makes it really special does it? You can join the BMFA with absolutely no building or flying experience and RR also employ cleaners and canteen staff .

He is open to offers - but bear in mind they were well under £200 new and have been superseded by a new version.

You can the Razorback version from SMC for £179! Unbelievable.

Mind you I suppose anything is possible from someone who has the arrogance and stupidity to "buy this because I was thinking of taking up flying"!

Judging by his other lsitings, he was even more ambitious with his intention to fly than the P47!

Looks like he's based his price on the larger 30cc H9 kit which is well over £500. Seeing as I just bought a NIB 60 size BH P47 for £80 do you think he'd be insulted by a similar offer laugh

To be honest I would pay him what the going rate was when they were available, approx. £170-£200 as they are superb fliers, but I think he is trying to cash in on the phrase when they were available
