Just noticed that he's just selling the wing for the extra. Must've sold the model, and the person probably picked it up and didn't want the wing, and now spare.

Hes also got the wheels listed. Looks like breaking for spares. I bet he gets more for the bits than he wanted for the whole.

He actually sold the engine and presumably the fuselage. He asked for offers and I offered £50 for the engine on its own. He didn't even bother to reply. I figured an OS 52 was worth that at least and I could use SC spares for the prop nut (I have one in stock) and the prop driver if needed,.

Some people have a nerve. This is worse than said model.

it is not worse. At lease it is clear what you are getting and you dont have to buy if you dont like it. Balencing some broken parts together and selling them as a complete model is misleading and in my eyes a con and potentially dangerous

I see that he has an OS 40 (with a curious V notch on the venturi) that's listed at £2.60 - and he says he's had it running

Now just what does he mean by "A squish band on the piston to improve scavenging"

Squish bands are in the head to improve combustion. Does he mean a baffle?

Now just the wing is for sale!

At least he has recognised it is off a low wing.

Perhaps he should hang on to one of his other items in case someone actually buys one of his models and takes it back in person? Talking of bargains not to be missed, how about his 3 grubby looking 3003 servos. grommets not included (and a switch of dubious history) for a mere £27 including P&P - a massive saving on Steve Webb's £27.90 including P&P AND grommets for 3 shiny new ones (but no iffy switch)!

...assuming you don't get caught up in a bidding war.

You would think it might be worth while spending ten minutes cleaning this

A big lump of crud

Maybe when cleaned up it could be put to another use , say for instance a fishing weight...Have just been stung myself , Purchased an OS 10 FP from ebay to use in a Ben Buckle novice for a bit of floaty nostalgia, said in desciption "used once and then boxed" upon unpacking found that the main needle and assembley are bent and broken. Have messaged the seller back and am awaiting responce the engine does look as if its only been used the once although a little gummed up with castor oil but has cleaned up fine and the internals are all clean and shiney.
