well. considering you’d have to make a sale to be able to receive feedback it actually kinda makes sense :)

I think it’s funny there’s an offer, did someone offer him $900? Or did someone offer him $20 just to spite him? LOL

Crashn: Yeah, you’d think that might be a giveaway as to its actual value.

And for $1,000 you’d think he could throw in free shipping!

Charlie, he’s practically giving the plane away at $1000, so he’s got to make a profit on it SOMEHOW.

Sharon: Yeah… I hate those guys who sell at cost and then try to rip you off on the shipping.

The real funny part is, it says mint condition, and it is out-of-the-box but it also says condition used in the description

He could be telling the truth about it being Grandpa’s plane. (If Grandpa bought it at a flea market last week for $12.95)

I offered him a whole 13.00 dollars..lol….20$ on shipping is a little extreme since that can fit into a flat rate box. When I ebay stuff I typically charge 12$ but I have been getting stung on postage rates lately.
