RCSCALEMODELS on E-Bay

Has anyone ever delt with these folks before? It looks like you buy a boat and they build it for you in 10 or so weeks???

It looks a little fishy but they have good feedback. I worry when there is "no local pick up" Would I have to pay 100 bucks for shipping if I live in the same city???

I know they were using some pictures of poster yngwie's Smit Rotterdam but now they are not???

Not planning on using them but there are some nice boats.

Marty

Here is a sample:

If you are selling boats... why would you not have pictures of your own products??? HHHmmm


Tito Neri:
E-Bay price 599.99
Graupner price 469.00

I would think that anyone starting this model would not be "blind" to doing a little research on it.

Just my 2 cents

He can't use pictures from my build, they are too unique...
The Wagenborg paint scheme would be a dead give away.
But I checked all his images. He isn't afraid to use other peoples
builds to represent his products.

He was using Yngwie 's images of his Smit Rotterdam.
That has stopped, but It is difficult to say the new images don't
belong to someone else's boat.

Umi...I am sure it was your build, because I noticed the Wagenborg paint scheme, I will check Ebay again... but maybe the listing has ended

Because other people's build's look better than yours!

Yes...I agree Marty, but some people buy before they read!

Shure looks like Umi's.... That is bull

That is just plain WRONG


And YES bigford I should be working on the Smit. I am letting the wood age a bit. and really let the epoxy dry. I like letting some dust settle on it for a real professional look (AKA basement weathering) It is very "high level modeling"

Ah... wait a new e-mail from a guy in Texas. He wants me to finish the Smit Nederland and take some pictures of it.
