Yet another evilBay outlet that either has no blessed idea or hopes that there are plenty of cashed-up morons out there ... check out this Hobby Master Liberator or this Minicraft Catalina amongst a vast number of ludicrously priced items. Yet another who thinks the lure of "Free Postage" is enticement enough. :evil:

I know some people collect miniature bottles - but, i thought the point was they were still full?

I collect 1:1 size bottles, oh wait a moment...

... “like new just open to drink” . Ah, so that's why it's empty.

And the hopeful wants we bottle collectors Down Under to fork out a further $US26 for postage. Grand total $US40 or $AUS56 on today's exchange rate. Now for a touch under $AUS55, my Aussie colleagues, you could have the 700 mL bottle complete with contents.

This guy claims to be a "professional" model builder, model priced accordingly

By definition, if he succeeds in selling the models, then he is a "professional" modeller. And someone's bidding $US87 on his Badger, so he's away. Importantly, he's a 1/144 modeller so good luck to him.

Now where are all my "professionally made" models for sale? Cough, splutter ... :oops:

What kit would the badger be?
I think I see Amodel or Roden for the C123 and Coaler... and certainly I see Trumpeter for the Fullback..

The painting on the Badger is a different class to the painting on the other ones... weirdly.. yet the wheels are still made 'the same way' as on the Fullback.

Oh well... bravo to him

This topic cuts both ways of course, how much would you have payed for one of these?

probably Trumpeter, though at the back of my mind - i have feeling there is another possibly older kit out there
