Diamonds, gold, 100 year items, women who donít talk and cook are rare.
NOT you old RC garbage! I wish people would just knock it off.
It's pathetic ok.
Rant off.

I think the person that needs to quit TROLLING is you, especially posting garbage posts at someone's FOR SALE thread and I do believe Anthony (ALL AMERICAN) was correct in his reply to you!!!:mad::censored:


There is just no need to post Nor View a titled Thread that you do not agree with!!

Good day (NOT!):censored::mad:

If a member is not interested in an item and doesn't have any pertinent facts or information to bring forth, they should keep their negative opinions out of other member's For Sale Threads! It's just rude and bad forum etiquette.

As the OP of a thread in the For Sale/Wanted forums, you can delete any or all comments. What's the problem?

ya i'm not going to lie even if i see something really cool i still resist saying so in the thread because when i shop for stuff in the for sale section i dont even open the link if there is a few replies already because it usually always means its sold

If a model kit has been out of production for some time, it clearly may qualify as rare or vintage. The price it is worth is precisely what someone is willing to pay for it....supply vs demand. Stop whining about things being vintage and rare (assuming it actually is)...either pay the price they want or pass it up, or respectfully negotiate a deal that works for both parties.

I occasionally pay a premium price for a older kit or model, if I really want it...... the market for it sets the price. I recently paid significant money for a 25-30 year rare and vintage Cox ARF foamie...the RF-5 Sportavia. (Paid around 178 bucks plus shipping). Worth every penny to me. I recently sold a old but perfect NIB vintage and rare Aristocraft Grumman F3F kit for about 250 bucks and it was worth every penny to the buyer...about 8 times the original price of the kit, but well under the $370 one had brought on Ebay recently.

I regularly see out of production kits or ARFs sold at prices greater than the original street price on here, even if they are recently out of production. And really rare and pristeen older kits and ARFs can command amazing prices on Ebay.

I will agree that the term rare and vintage does get over used and used in misleading ways, especially on Ebay. Personally, I look past the sellers comments and evaluate the item on it's own merit and worth to me.

Just because some sellers have odd notions of what vintage and rare means does not mean that these are not valid terms.

I will always use the terms vintage and rare when the situation warrants. If you don't believe in the terms, simply ignore my ads. I think complaining about it is what is really pathetic.
