It got my interest Gordon, but I live too far away.

In order to get the best return from your collection, you really need to sell the items separately and with postage options.

As is you might get lucky if more than one person is interested locally. If you split them and relist separately with postage you should be able to double your return. The completed model has very little value anyway, if you are worried about it getting damaged in the post.

thanks for the input Kevin

i wondered if splitting the items would be a better bet, especially the Cox engine and Freshman glider. I was in a tad hurry to clear my shed and in my haste offered the items as a job lot.

I'm able to cancel the listing and start again?

I would try Facebook market place, and split the items in the first instance. I have sold a fair bit of modelling goods lately, all on marketplace. I had it advertised on Gumtree. Preloved, e.bay, Bmfa etc. The only inquiries were from marketplace. Give it a try, no on costs and you can always sell other items when the first buyer turns up!.

You have a bid. You have offerered them for sale, and you have a buyer. Contract made. Your potential buyer might have an issue if you change your mind.

PS, Not my bid.

..I understand the point you're making Don and agree we should stick with any commitments we make. However less than a month ago i "sold" a Pioneer turntable on Ebay only for the buyer refusing to pay. I reported him to Ebay and got a standard issue response that they would take it up with him- as yet no response and we all know i won't get one- the only consolation i have is that i gave him a poor rating but still have the turntable.

A neighbour of mine runs a business on Ebay and she tells me my experience is quite common- people get over excited when bidding and then over commit themselves.

On a positive note the posting has received 424 views so far- unless it's mainly you lot!

There's a specific thread for posting links to your Ebay items here, folks. We prefer you to use that rather than starting a new thread, ta.

Apologies Mod

when i go to the Ebay thread, or any for that matter, how do you post a new message? I know that sounds basic but assume I am! Do you go to add Posting and then write in the box? I assumed that would appear as a reply to the previous Forumers post?
