    That might just be meant to help fill a gap in available models. When using the three foot rule+, I am sure it looks fine. 3 feet, + a bottle of scotch, + a dark room, + a blindfold, etc

    While i dont like scotch , i think thats a waste of good scotch . I think the best thing to do to make that look better , is to light it on fire

    Was thinking one would need to drink the full bottle before it started to look good... but perhaps dunking in a cheap scotch, then lighting on fire would help improve the overall look and cost less...
    Disclaimer: I am not condoning drinking and playing with fire in a dark room with a blindfold. Caution is advised. Perhaps parental supervision.

    Hmmm, what to do with these leftover craft foam pieces...? Was going to throw them out. Maybe list them on Ebay?
    They do resemble oil tanks... Oil tanks must go for a good amount... Yeah, oil tanks.... That's the ticket!! $20 for scraps. I'd better offer free shipping.

    For that matter... where is that box of vintage broken trains stuff... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pola-N-Scal...Ium:rk:53:pf:0

    Complaining about Ebay is a fairly futile gesture, but I just had to bring this one up. $7.50 shipping on A CMW CAR????? I was all set to bid and then I saw that, and thought, "No way am i going to validate this yay-hoo's greed, or his low opinion of my intelligence".

    - I have found that under 8 oz, I can mail First Class which includes tracking, for less than $4.00 and with Ebay discount. 6 oz can be under $3.00.
    For small items, it can't be beat. I despise unnecessary S&H charges. But it is tough if it is one small item.

    There have been times when I've been tempted to send sellers a link to the comments being made here about them and their listings. Just so they know that not everyone is as smitten with their overpriced des ordures as they are.

    $7.50 shipping is a outstanding shipping price to any of us International members here . We should be so lucky . I really dont find that unreasonable . To provide and safely pack it up in thier own supplied box and packing materials , take it to the post office on their time , has to be worth something . So to do all that and only charge $7.50 , is a good deal from where i stand . I really dont see how that insults intelligence . Maybe its a Canadian thing , but i would be happy with that , especially for 1 car . Color me happy with that kind of shipping charges for domestic shipping .

    For anyone with paypal and a computer with a printer, you can print USPS 1st class from home! You can ship to anyone, not just people who pay you with paypal!
    Try either of these links and bookmark them for later! I've been able to ship a small package coast to coast for under $4 in less than 3 days (same time as USPS Priority).
