no papal account, no phone number--- I think for me, that it would be a deal breaker-- post a link to the gear, so we can see if there worth that kind of gamble.

I liked Air-Jon's idea, You could end up spending $985--

his camera is broken too

he sent a Jetlegend website photo of the gear, when asked. It feels like a scam to me, but I sure want some gear for my bird????

The minimum fee for that escrow service I gave a few posts back is $25. Cheap piece of mind. If the guy won't do it, then I'd move on.

To many things just don't add up- I personally would not be comfortable in a deal like that--
I'd bite the bullet, and get a new set from JL.

Thanks

I appreciate your input guys. Don't want my desire for the gear out weigh the smell of scam!! I haven't heard back from him since I requested a street address for mailing a money order.

Reality is it would be relatively easy to machine up some simple semi-scale struts like the yellow single. I have a yellow single and I could just enlarge that design. If something does not come up in due time....lets talk about just making you some. I may be able to incorporate a real shock absorber off an RC truck...and simply shroud it to look like the scale absorber.

I have used the escrow site Bart posted once before and it works very well. It sure sounds like a scam to me so be careful. If he ends up not responding lets all go to RCU and out him. We can start a new thread to warn others as he is probably lurking in the wanted ads. We can also report him so they can log his I.P. I hate scamers. Its been my experience that modelers are some of the most honest people I know. And unfortunately we are way to trusting also.

Good call. Still a chance something else will come up that is legit.

acumulating parts

picked up some BVM wheels and brakes for the mains and a pair of front wheels. All at good prices. Been a good month for several side jobs. So hope to have some cash for the rest of landing gear stuff. Then I will be out of excuses for getting this airplane built. Still a lot to to do, but finally getting warm enough to get back to glassing. Thanks "Cooler" for some drawings with all the angles for installing the landing gear mounts in an F-18.
Well back to lurking in the classifieds for stuff.
