Well I suppose it is the 'best price' (if you're the one doing the selling)

As we know, sometimes dealers put the price up to silly figures to put people off while they re-stock -so they don't have to cancel and relist (which I believe costs them).

However there's something fishy here, all the prices of the items I've looked at (about 20 of the 227K listed) seem to be about x10 times too expensive, perhaps a conversion error as the bits come from USA even though the seller is in UK..

So I looked at the first 5 feedbacks listed, they were all satisfied customers, although 1 had asked for and got a refund, but viewing the original listings for the items they all said "The listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available". How can that happen?

Jon said a little while back that sometimes customers buy a motor that then appears on ebay

It always rings alarm bells when I see in the description, "Study photos carefully".

Especially if they're so out of focus you can't even identify the engine easily.

I've never understood why so many adverts/posts on eBay are so terse. In this case they don't even give the weight, engine or as far as I cans see the wing span. There's no limit on the word count so why not use it to persuade potential buyers what a great item you're offering.

I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole.

Right so here is a photo of the gorgeous "1930s style racer" that the Ebay seller has listed next to an actual 1930s Brown B2... I don't think that the Ebay model quite captures the elegance of it.
