You know if you going to try and sell something for that much money and with that many shipping requirements you could at least clean it up a little. I mean come on, dust it a little. I just do not understand people sometimes. I want thousands for this and by the way I am not going to ship it, the winner will have to set that up. Please!

Clueless!

"THIS IS A MODEL TOY FOR THE ELITE COLLECTOR.ONE OF A KIND MUSEUM PIECE " not to mention a BS artist.

I wonder how many of those kits are out there?

I agree, we're probably looking at a kit boat.
