    Take the $200. The last I saw in the UK in a shop was £55. The last I saw for sale a friend bought for his nascent model-selling business. A guy paid £50 for it, and came back the following week and said "Boy, that was big kit. It took me a whole day to build and paint." We cried :bang:

    amazed. Truly amazed. It takes me up to three months to complete a good model, painting and building. Anyone else for so much time?

    Hence the tears - he was quite literally the worst modeller I have ever seen. He brought it in to show us, glue seeping out every where and one colour from a spray can)... Likewise he bought all of the Luft '46 kits before any one else could get them and made a similar job. Screams were heard for weeks.

    Let me guess - he sprayed over the glass bits as well?

    Strangely enough his ineptitude didn't extend that far, it's just that if a "real" modeller had bought it it might have been worth looking at. The guy was recently banned for "financial indiscretions", to make up the loss he gave his wargames army to our club - over £4000 worth (at brand new prices) - after seeing his assembly and paint work the auction fetched a total of about £300 - gives you some idea of his skill level.

    Too bad for this guy though. Loosing so much on the deal...
    Truly sad story though.
    I hope you'll do better :)
