    You can get the exact same set of Kato F-units for $500 less from MTS. But what's $500 among friends?

    Classic: Ebay buyer fails to pay. Multiple messages, report to Ebay, Ebay refunds fees, block buyer and re-list...

    Now seller messages: "I was under the impression that I had not won the auction. I see you have re-posted the item again (which is fine) and I would like to bid, if you could see your way clear to allow it."

    Fool me once... SMH

    Growing Old curmudgeon wants to respond with obnoxious comment but son recommends just ignoring...


    On another note: "EXTREMELY RARE ITEM" just a bit of a stretch. Uncommon perhaps?

    Seriously? How much info do you think you need to understand that you won the item?
    You're not watching that auction?
    How many emails do think you need?
    What a tool?
    Block him, move on, and ignore him. My list isn't full but there are more on there than there should be.

    I thought “giant snowflakes?” Naw. Then I read the description, and indeed, they are giant snowflakes. And here I have spent the past year carefully cementing in place several quarts of WS microscopic sized fake snow. Maybe I should have just gone with a few big flakes instead.

    I didn't say I've seen it personally, just helping out the seller of said "freight" load.

    Hmmmm.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/N-Scale-Bra...cAAOSwnRtddaMu

    Trying to figure out what the modeler is modeling.
    Is it possible that this assemblage is hiding a mechanism underneath for self-propulsion?

    Well, that wouldn't be a bad thing if it were all the melted bits that went missing ... But then again, that's pretty much all you're buying, sooo ... Could some explain to Moose why anyone would buy this?
