I was bidding on this but after it went up the $500 mark I stopped.
Proves one thing to us collectors. If you want it, you'll pay for it no matter what. Divine madness indeed. I love this hobby!

You've got to be kidding. How desperate do you have to be? For plastic?

For those who missed the bidding and really wants this model. He must have two (or maybe more... or...):

Haha. Only 24 easy installments of $87 USD. The heck is this, an iPad?

Absolute lunacy! $1,784. I know, I know, it’s worth what anyone’s prepared to pay but come on. I’ve got the Lupa An124, these big Antonov do look good in 1/200 plastic or otherwise.

Most likely the owner vs the actual bidder. Seen it many times in greedbay land. Bid up the item with an alias so that the desperado gets eff'd for being a gullible moron. Chumps are everywhere.

Shill bidding is also illegal in many places and can carry severe penalties

I was once bidding on a Herpa Premium American A300 and the owner obviously pulled the shill bidding trick on me. He overplayed his card, but he contacted me afterwards, claiming he had a second one, that he would sell to me for my highest offer. That was 300$ as far as I remember.

I made the deal, no matter what. Fraud or not, that was a great price for that lovely model.

I am the VERY proud owner of a Russels America West A320. I cherish the model so much that I keep her in my glass cabinet. Away from dust and Budgies

Pity that there were not many Russell models made

I snipe and only snipe because of that shill bidding behavior by owners. I don't like it either, but it's the only way to not get completely screwed.

For what its worth, I bought the exact same model from a model shop (West Main Toys) in HKG for only HKD 2400 back in 2014.

If it is really worth close to USD 1.8k now (which I highly doubt), it would be the highest appreciating asset I've ever owned in my life.
