I am taking the chance, too. Should be interesting, but what the heck.

His offer in eBay Canada is $29.99 + $10.00 shipping, on eBay USA, he has two offers, $39.99 & $49.99 both with $150 shipping!

At least there's a few of us in this together to keep an eye on it. If it is correct I'll be thrilled to get this kit at that price.

How can there be a limited quantity available, when it's a pre-order?


Kevin

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

Well, on the off-chance they have these completed and ready to be shipped, something may have slipped out a side door and made it's way into the seller's hands. Thus a limited quantity.

 

Or from personal experience years ago, buying brand new dvd TV show complete series box sets for 10% retail on the sidewalk in Manhattan. Nature finds a way.

What he is doing now violates ebay policy, he has a few auctions at low values with extreme shipping.

He isn't going to ship any of these. He is taking the money and running. At first I thought it was an error, now I am certain it is a scam.

Seems to be the same like the Takom V2 "bargain" discussed here about 10 month ago.

I'll bet if it is legitimate, what you'll get is the 1/48 scale F4U-1D and not the new 1/32 even though that's what's advertised.  I'm not biting as I think it's a scam too.  You'll get your money back from PayPal (if you used it) but the scam goes merrily on.

I figured with eBay and PayPal's buyer-friendly attitudes, I have nothing to lose.

Scam waiting to happen fellas, if it sounds to go to be true then it's normally false and a lie

You mean like the video camera that was mis-marked at Target many years ago that I bought, brand new in the box for $39.95?
