This guy is optimistic...£65 for a built Revell Fw-190 (not Eduard or F-Toys, Revell... 1970s moulds Revell at that).

I wish him luck.

He'll need luck. The zoom function on Ebay doesn't do him any favours. That paint job looks a bit thick (then again, people in glass houses and all that).

"... This is the best example of a 1/144 aeroplane I've seen ...". And possibly the only one, too. No internal detail, roughly applied paint, dodgy fit between wings and fuselage, lack of filler, etc. Yes, definitely avoid the zoom function. The blur function on the other hand ... :twisted:

Like Tony, I don't claim to be the epitome of modelling excellence. However, I also don't claim to be a "professional builder" whose output warrants 65 quid. Still, good luck, Mr Saxon...

Possibly the worst paint job ever, worse than the JSMWARPLANES on ebay

Seller is "SimplyBestPrices". Not for the buyer obviously. Definitely for the seller if he finds someone gullible enough to pay this sort of money.

The funny thing is, I once got a mint carton of F-toys Tempests and Ta-152s from them for $1. There must have been hell to pay when they realised their mistake. :twisted:

As in, "There were supposed to be three zeroes after the 1. Where the hell are they?" :twisted:

More WTF moments from SBP:

Takara WTM2 Hetzer ... $AUS345
F-Toys WKC11 Bf109G-6 ... $AUS342
Zvezda Hurricane Mk I ... $AUS280

Oh, and the Mark IC Beaufighter was clearly selling so well, they jacked the price up to $AUS344.
