In fairness the Kadet is also an original from Sig and their price is $150. Add on the 20% VAT on both the original cost plus the post and packaging it does make it a lot more expensive (especially if the 'extras' are included)

Yes but the Sig kit is still available today from Pegasus for £115 (Well you might have to wait for it to come from the USA.)

The Mercury Matador kit looks like the original Mercury kit as sold back in the 50s and 60s.

You can get a kit from Ben BUckle but not in its original box with original label as far as I know

Disagree...if I have to buy jiffy bags etc then thats the 'packaging' part of p&p.
Ebay costs are so high now why should sellers swallow costs?
I dont think thats unreasonable.

Yep... ?8.50 may seem a little high, but includes p&p, packaging, time, travel to the P.O etc, no not so bad.

His listings are incredibly random, as his prices appear to be; according to ebay, he has over 1/4 million items listed at the moment!

Now then the ad does say that you are only getting the front bit, that'll be the lump of corroded metal then. The rest is going in the bin.

Oh my God, I think I know what it is. If only I had seen it earlier, I would have saved myself from building the very same model.


It was initially the wing break point and UC wire that gave me the clue.

It is possible that I could have used the engine?

I simply don't 'do ebay', am I the only one?. What amazes me is that some people will on-occasion pay more for a used, sometimes damaged, item that they can buy new for less. It doesn't make any sense. For example the NGH GF38 petrol engine can be purchased from Just Engines for £270 including silencer etc. and a warrantee. From Hobbyking on ebay it is £277 without muffler. On their own website it is £235 with the Hobbyking guarantee. wink 2

I came across this one on Ebay from a German seller here. Is he serious? Will someone buy it at that price?

I am curious probably because I have a brand new, unopened NGH GF38 engine myself, that is surplus to requirements. What should I do? Put it up for auction on ebay or ask a silly price? As I don't have any track record would that be wise? Any advice would be welcome.

Used Taranis Plus. Starting bids £170. Brand new, £170.

I think it IS new and advertised by a trade seller. I could be wrong, of course. Both my early Taranis transmitters came with the aluminium carrying case and charger as standard and were a lot cheaper than new ones now. I understood that the case is an extra now.
