Just been browsing the engines for sale on Ebay and came across this SC32

It's entered in the category 'New other' , yet it's clearly been well abused. It's generally dirty and the carb housing is cracked on both sides!!

I can't find any way to report this to Ebay as a misleading description surprise

Just shows how some sellers abuse the system, and has 100% positive feedback!

It's been amended now.

There were a couple of really good ones just been sold in the last few days for a fiver over what that's up for, I'm always browsing for IC engines on ebay I usually only buy what I need but occasionally succumb to one or two I just want. I to let so many regretfully slip past.

I emailed the seller saying his description was incorrect, he acknowledged my email and altered the listing.

This one's just a curiosity; some moulds and plugs for a number of fuselages and a boat hull. Can you identify them?

The top one looks a bit like the plug or an actual fuselage for the 'Bowman's of Ipswich' Hawker Hurricane, the others look vaguely Galaxy Magician/Mystic shaped, but the kits had wooden fuselages. The bottom one is a glider of some sort.

It was a '£1 maximum selling fees' listing weekend which probably explains the lack of preparation in the photos, so I'm not going to criticise.

Wow

Those Irvine engines must be good. They must be up there with Hanno Specials.

I saw those the other day.

Tempted to offer to take his the engine and £400 of his pounds, then meet halfway at £50 for the engine.

Sorry Jeff et al, It would have helped!

'RC Plane Moulds'

The jet-shaped one is somewhat reminiscent of the Gnatty trainer kitted by the Leicester Model Centre.

Cheers, Robin

Actually the "jet shaped" fuselage is the John Carpenter designed HS Gnat (IE a scale model).

Don't bother. I reported fake Futaba servos being sold several times and the sellers are still active.

Not seeing an issue there -it's listed as being for spares or repairs. The seller took notice of the advice received and altered the listing.

This guy often has engines listed but I've never, ever, even once seen a set of images that are in focus, I emailed him for some additional photos and they were worse!

Is it anyone on here?

I used to think that badly-exposed, out-of-focus pictures on eBay listings were just a sign of the seller's incompetence in using a camera.

I now realise it's most likely a deliberate way of providing pictures without actually allowing a potential buyer to spot whatever 'issues' the product has...
