Default eBay catch - G200 Delta Widget 757

Found this baby on eBay a few days ago and it arrived today. Model is brand new, box is mint too . Sellers listing was very vague and did not even mention widget. The listing photo was just of the model inside the foam with all it's wrappings, so I think I was pretty lucky to notice it.







And this is last weekends catch from the Red Caboose, first time there and boy does that turd really live up to his reputation. Let's not even go there..

Nice!

Is he starting to carry more diecast models there at the Red Caboose? I've been there twice on my last 2 trips to NYC, and he'd only have plastic snapfit (Skymarks / Hogan) in stock with the random loose-end diecast models scattered about in his glass display cases.

The models in glass display cases were mostly diecast to my knowledge. Gemin200, Aviation 200, Phoenix, Herpa. AND he has new inventory in the back that he hasn't had the time to get to, "he's only one person". Haha

The box for my model smelled like cat urine and had no stand, and he insisted on just keeping the model in display.

Haha!!! I know, right?! It always seemed like his customers were inconveniencing him somehow. So he almost didn't sell you the plane?

Oh I'm sure that smell is from his cat marking its territory around the shop
