NEVER use 'friends & family' in either direction unless it's someone you know and trust. A stranger asking you to do so is an instant red flag.
|Thread: South Yorkshire Model Supplies|
Thanks for the info. It looks to be a nice kit. There used to be so many good model suppliers...
Anyone know anything about the above company? A 60" Slingsby Firefly kit has come my way - looks to be from around the 1980s - and the only clue as to the manufacturer is in the build notes which mention South Yorkshire Model Supplies.

|Thread: Selling vintage kits question|
Kits can vary massively in value. for some collectors, they never intend to build them, but want them as close to pristine as possible. Damaging a box can greatly reduce the value. They're a bit like toy cars in that way. Complete, unstarted kits in clean boxes tend to fetch the best prices, and as others have said, a list & photos would help.
|Thread: Dave Smith Models 'Saphir' plan wanted|
Very useful. Thanks Denis.
Ah! That could well explain why I haven't been able to find any!
Anyone got one to sell or copy? I picked up a kit the other day, but the plans are missing.

|Thread: Priory Models Silhouette|
I have a part-built Silhouette if anyone is after one. Not fully checked parts against the build booklet yet, but most of it is certainly there. Wings have been joined so won't be able to post; I'm based in Glastonbury and am regularly in Liverpool.
|Thread: Mysterious old radio|
Anyone know anything about the one on the left??
|Thread: Shipping used engine abroad|
Thanks for the info, good people. I've only even had problems sending engines via GSP, so won't use it for that again. But for other stuff it's excellent for sellers. My biggest gripe is the way they confiscate items they deem 'dangerous'. They won't even say what they do with confiscated goods. I had to threaten them with legal action to get back a nice Frog 2.49.
I don't use GSP for engines now. I'm trying to find out if there are indeed rules against sending used engines abroad as I don't want to risk losing another one!
Anyone know the rules on this? I sold an old engine to a bloke in Norway via Ebay's Global Shipping Programme, and it went through with no problem. Then he bought another, and this time Ebay classed it as 'dangerous', and refused to ship it. (They also refused to return it to me at first, though I got it back after a helluva fight).
|Thread: Keil Kraft Aquarius A2 glider|
One of these turned up in a batch of kits. I've never seen one before. It's a 73" contest spec. A2, which isn't my thing, so I'll be selling it on. Thing is, I have no idea of what it may fetch. Anyone have any thoughts before I slap it on Ebay and see what happens?
|Thread: EBay Ads by Forum Members|
I have a number of vintage kits on Ebay. Click the 'see other items' on the right to, um, see other items.

Dremel. Job done.
|Thread: Ancient Engine ID?|
"Mmm, well it's old/interesting. Looks to be the 781st one they made too. Beyond that I have no idea.......
The knurled ring looks a bit of an oddity."
