    I suppose you could? There's plenty of room under the Sushi load.

    I was thinking loading up the sound file from McDonald's Fillet-o-Fish commercial. "Gimme that fish..."

    Maybe they are delivering it themselves? By way of round the world tour via trains, planes and cruise ships?

    what they are doing is causing the "trending" price to go up. By listing a bunch of stuff with ridiculous prices, when the put the item at 20 (still over priced) is shows as so far below the "trending" price that some folks who don't know the actual value, jump on it thinking they got a steal!

    "trending" includes shipping?

    At what point would you/we/I intervene...?

    Many of the posts in this thread are lost causes. Nothing we say would help and often are rebuked in anger.

    Out of respect to some sellers that are clearly in over their heads and particularly when they are selling trains for a recently lost family member or friend, I tend to offer my unsolicited help. (yeah, not a great habit...)
    A recent post marked an HO narrow gauge loco as Nn3. The listing caught my eye but realized quickly that it was not N scale. (wish it was) The seller was grateful and appreciated my "butting" in. He is selling his father's trains and says he knows very little about them.

    The same seller has listed some Lionel diecast as N scale, They are actually 1:120 scale floor toys called Lionel Trains Big Rugged. Unpowered. They came out in late 90's. Think my son had one. This seller seems to think they are rare and has priced them as such. They sell for around $20 in original packaging.

    - Would you reach out again to offer help, knowing that it is helpful but bubble bursting info?
    - Let things alone. He'll figure it out eventually?
    - Other?

    listings: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-lionel...IAAOSwrhFgA2qn
    another, $100: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-lionel...wAAOSwTx5gA25y


    Thoughts?

    Occasionally I've done this if the listing has some outrageously egregious error, but "Caveat emptor" is a better policy, I believe.

    At 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.
    I love this post! Almost every piece looks like an entire tube of Testors was used for assembly. Gotta love all the gloss paint as well. Oh to be a fly on the wall.
