What the hell? He said bidding started at 99c and it's now at $1,225?

Damn, I could buy a couple of Auscision Bs and then some with that kind of money.

You could buy a couple in several different liveries with that money...

$1225 is enough for 2 Trainorama 32s and a couple of wagons!

Are the bidders seriously that desperate? What's so special about that set? It's ordinary!! And that spray gun...how much can that be worth? Looks rather dead.

That is a serious comedy!!! Laughing

Who's this idiot trying to kid, those sets were as common as muck, every dept store in Australia probably had them in at some time. In the end here in Adelaide, one dept store was flogging them off for just over a $100 or so to get rid of them. Biggest laugh I have had in a long time, he must think we are all mushrooms kept in the dark and fed nothing but BS.

Documentation all he would have is a service sheet and a warranty from memory, the warranty would not be any good now anyway, even if it was still usable the company that made that set no longer exist's as such! Good grief I better find the Ghan set I bought years back, I wonder if I could get 2 grand for it! Rolling EyesRolling EyesRolling EyesRolling Eyes

Well, as Allan said a few posts back, this is a good reason against private auctions. It would not surprise me if all the bids are by the seller or his mates. At least the silly bids would be.

The documentation referred to is bogus legal material.

I've just had a look at the latest batch of questions and answers. It only gets worse.  Rolling Eyes

Yes, it is comedy, but comedy of the stupidest kind. Perhaps made especially for this thread. Hmmm!

The seller is seriously very stupid. All those questions are simply lies and tricks. I'd have to agree with you  - the bidders are all probably mates.

The questions..."God bless..hanief from zimbabwe" and "canada in a small Indian tribe with only 5mins of internet time in my teepee"...yep they're certainly lies. Who'd be posting questions like that?

The latest bidder has put on even a larger bid, now over $1600. That set should be worth around the $200.00 mark (maybe even less).

I sincerely hope no one will fall into this trap - it's worst than GrandCentralRail. Shocked

Speaking on Ebay the bad way. When I do buy, I pay as soon as posible. But guess I hope that no one on Railpage Australia™ owns this http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=130279157354&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=003.

Because I,m wild Evil or Very MadEvil or Very Mad
If so I hate to say if you own the item you better get item to my door very smart. I do still have that Bendigo Bank Docket $95.50. The person can be on the way to get banned from Ebay. This is not the first time I had sellers got into trouble for not delivered items, The reason for this it,s a model railway item has not be delivered, I have brought a few item from users on Ebay which Also some members from Railpage. Please note I,m haveing a dig people here, but trouble from sellers who fails to tell buyers the item in comeing or fail to deliver.

Also I had a handful of users that went on a Ebay Ban for this kind of action.

W car kit ~$40, E car bogies ~$16, being able to to get your money back for non delivery - lucky!

Um, BEs have 9 compartments not 7 folks...

If I were you I'd be happy if it doesn't turn up, at least that way you can claim your money back. You really should have stopped bidding at $55.55 you've paid someone $34.50 to *assemble* and paint it what appears to be the wrong colour then put it on the wrong bogies...

Aside from the wrong bogies, E cars did not have the horizontal bar at the top of the windows, that was the W cars that had them. NONE of the cars had the vertical bar leading down to the horizontal bar you can see on the windows, this is a moulding aid to the bar for W cars... Which should have been removed almost at the beginning of construction regardless of which car type it's supposed to represent.

If it does turn up, be sure to carefully remove those vertical moulding gates on the windows, leave the horizontal ones, put it onto W bogies, redecal it to be a W car and do not forget the trussing under the floor... That is kinda important to keep the floor level.

Thank you for your support Aarron and B67. A BW car surpose to be a BE car. Now that doe,s it, I,m even more wild. This seller is gonna be in more trouble than Ned Kelly. An Ebay Dispute is already in progress on this seller For failing to deliver.

What's the guess that the seller needed some spare W (or E) car sides and took them from the E car kitbash kit and put the rest together to get their money back?  I could be wrong, but it looks that way. In any case, it isn't what it is described to be.

The Ebay user "VR Steamer" is in fact a mate of mine. He mentioned this incident to me hence why he left negative feedback. AFAIK he got his money back.
