I have seen several RC items on ebay that way. Apparently they seller does not realize that they are still being made.

Sometimes you see new kits that stores like Tower hobbies offer with free shipping. If you recently purchase a new item like an airplane you can't get your money back using ebay because shipping costs for individuals sending large boxes is very high.

Either that or they know full well and hope that throwing around nonsensical buzzwords like "vintage" will inspire an ignorant buyer into a sale. In the age of google it's inexcusable for buyers and sellers to not be aware those kits are being made new, and what their price is.

Tacky maybe, but legal. Let the buyer beware!

Some time ago, I read a newspaper story about a guy who made his living buying common household products, like disposable diapers, at retail, doubling the price, then listing them on the 'bay. He had lots of return customers.

He told the reporter that there were plenty of people who were too busy, or too lazy, to shop around to keep him and many others like him in business.

$170 for an Great Planes Fling. Not even on a good day. And I was the one that started the Fling thread on RCG!
