    Lister 'Trainz" states Wheels of Time's MSRP is $999. Which is a load of bunk. WOT website shows them at $35.

    Trainz is notoriously careless with their listings. Scouring through their listings, it is not uncommon to find items listed with decimal in wrong place. I have taken advantage of quite a few these "advantageous" mistakes over the years. Tried to help them correct them but did not want to listen.

    Did you get anything at 96% off?

    When they were doing auctions, I would say probably 75%+ at times.
    Recently, on Ebay, they listed Gold Medal Models fire escapes at $3.91 each while at same time listing 10 for $121.00. Bought 6 at roughly 66% off regular price...
    I generally would report a mistake like that to a seller. But my experience with them it they don't seem to care, respond or correct.

    Default Well Documented Art For Sale (?)

    You can often tell it's a "high quality" item because they are asking a lot for the item. https://www.ebay.com/itm/N-scale-bui...oAAOSwocxf-gaF - $58.90 with free shipping!!
    temp.jpgAt first glance, you might not appreciate the modeling skills and artistry that went into this kit. The seller clearly does and has put a high value on it.
    I'm on my 27th glance and not quite seeing it. (Yet!) I took some art courses and I am determined to find the same artistic value that this price represents!!

    Help me. Is it the "lots of wood" or "Various imperfections"? Maybe the copious glue and glue cobwebs...?

    Edit: A prolific "artist". This seller has over 700 similarly created and highly valued pieces in their collection for sale. Worth a 6 second perusal.

    Sheer artistic genius! (Or so the $55.90 price would indicate)

    The worst part is if you look at the completed items there are people that spent a lot on some really cheap stuff...

    What'd the guy use to slap on the tube glue? A 2" paint brush?

    Seriously, looks like something I did with a Pola kit when I was 7 years old.

    "Various imperfections." Yeah, like in hand-eye coordination and knowing what adhesive to use. ...

    Reminds me of a scene in Caddy Shack where Ty goes into Carl's garage looking for his ball.

    He asks Carl "Is this your place Carl?"

    Carl says "Yea what do you think of it?"

    Ty says " It's really ... awful"

    Can you fit decoders in those things? They are real as they jam a 4 wheel mechanism under each.
