Ebay items
« on: November 18, 2016, 08:24:08 PM »
This thread is a catch basin for items which are unique to Ebay.

To start I found this Made on request vacuformed 1/72 Saunders-Roe Princess flying boat kit out of Russia.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I wonder if that is a Herrill's Execuform rip-off

Sez Michael Herrill on the plans, and the seller states he's selling off his own collection (a lot of interesting vacs in his listings,
including a CONTRAIL Latecoere 631), and Herrill did sell (does sell?) the Princess on an 'as requested' basis.

So I don't think he's offering to mould it on request, rather he is stating how it was originally sold.

"Evil our grandsires were, our fathers worse;
And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."
