Cheers all and if he is for real .. good hunting
This should help bring down the tension. See attached picture with the radio and newspaper. yeah, yeah, I know, I know oooooh, he could have photo shopped. In this instance, I doubt it. To me personally, it just seems like a guy who doesn't know our hobby (obviously) and trying to get rid of the equipment. I'll take the gamble, Paypal has been alright with me thus far.

Re-read post #20 above....I am waiting for his phone call to set a time to meet this Wednesday...I feel this will be the defining day. I will take and post pictures of the items for all to see. There >is< the chance that he is a very busy person, but he did give me a choice of meeting dates of either Wednesday or Thursday. Don't worry about me snagging the stuff out rome under you all, as I have more than I will ever get to in the next 20 years, so no interest in this stash.

It is now past 9am Seattle time, and I have not had any contact with the OP. I will drive to Seattle to visit a friend and give him some contest wood, and if the OP does call me today, I will attempt to meet him and do the picture thing.

Likewise. I admit I hopped on the band wagon. Did like he requested. Sent email with info and Ph# etc. Made cash offer with same day pick-up. Not a peep.

Seriously. Has anybody actually managed to do anything with this deal?

Thanks much Neil for trying to get there. If you get to see the stuff then this will not only elimnate the concern of being a scam but it will also make it MUCH easier for him to sell.

OK fellow modelers, I am back home at 6:30 Seattle time and had a wonderful time visiting with my friend and searching known places for contest wood, bought 6 sheets of 1/8th. I never did have any contact with the OP of this thread, so I never got to meet with him. If any of you had any contact or emails with him, and you think your offer / purchase can go forward, then give it a try, but if I were trying to buy something from him, at this point, I would go flying instead. I do understand that things come up in life, and we may be seeing this happen, but not this time around. I am retired, and if this listing gets posted again without pictures, and the OP is more on the ball with his responses, then I might try again to meet with him. What say yee, time to buy someone else's stuff ??
