Typical ebay add. Give you a good price on the item and then bend you over and slip it to you on the shipping with out the benefit of lubrication. I get the feeling "many" do not pay any attention to the shipping cost as it relates to the TOTAL cost of the item.

You know that saying reinforcing the importance of the comma....

Or the classic road sign "slow children at play". Seems kind of cruel to publicly denounce my child's intelligence.

Scroll down...you will see in "similar items" a .25-32 ARF Stik for over $1100. For only a few dollars more you can have a giant scale Stik. Where do people get these figures?

I've seen this with other items on ebay, apparently sellers do this when an item is out of stock. This way, they don't have to pay the relisting fees or something when it becomes available. All the other planes they're selling are normal priced.

Any comments I would have would be considered politically incorrect.

lol. The seller almost exclusively sells watches. He could have googled OS and not understood that size and model dictates price.
