Agreed Peter.

I have a bit of a pet peeve concerning terminology.

He has a rather heroic attitude to pricing doesn't he?

It never ceases to amaze me how people seem to think(?) that there is value in tatty bits of junk which should have been consigned to the bin a long time ago.

I think it's because eBay had always thrown up oddities when people pay over the odds for rubbish. Way back when eBay started, people were selling polo mints, playing cards and any old junk for the novelty. I guess people are banking on someone being foolish or naive enough to pay silly money for rubbish. After all, it's not costing them anything and they are selling to a vast marketplace.

It is very,very simple.

They are working on the old principle. "There is one born every minute!!"

Eventually someone will be stupid enough to by it.

"There's also a ghostly cat in the first picture - see if you can spot it! ...". Try as I might, I just can't convince myself that there is something around the cat toy hanging from that stick. I HAVE tried! Go, Martin - se if you can convince me - or have I looked at that area too long and ignored something else. A sleepless night beckons.

Look carefully at the bottom of the black area immediately above the white area in the right hand bottom corner and if your screen gives sufficient contrast you should see two triangular ears and the cat's eyes.

He is not charging for the damage, wonder how much it would be if it was perfect?

IT isn't even very accurate and detailing is virtually non existant.

His other items are reasonably priced, could it be a mistake ?

People not "in the know" often assume that size + scale = money. If it were a good quality, accurate, detailed build it would probably be worth the price, but it is a long way off that.

As it is, if I were buying it, I'd expect to be taking out the radio gear, engine, retracts etc and tossing the airframe. £250 maybe.

Re the 109.

I wonder if some have been emboldened by the recent repair/restoration programme that featured the old David Boddington model.

I wonder how many have contacted Drew Pritchard and expected thousands of pounds for heaps of scrap models!!

He hasn't realised that you don't look through the lens to take the picture.

Some tell him to turn the camera round and use the viewfinder

I don't know how to upload an image from e bay but on the same page there was a B25 Mitchell advertised as a B25 Liberator. starting price £20. Makes you wonder where it came from.
