Default Ebay seller planespotterheathrowofficial_5

Listed a nice Gemini A340 Air China.
I will name and shame as fed up with numpties on ebay.



So asked before buying if he had the Box which he did.
So arrived in a bit of bubble wrap floating around in the Gemini box without the foam liner!



Seller claims not his fault! and blames COVID19! But I will pursue through ebay.
This annoys me as yet another beautiful model ruined by stupidity and could have been avoided if a bit more care was used in packing....



Sure can stick tailplane and engine back on. but wingtip fence will never invisibly repair and then there is trying to get new gear....

Thanks for the heads up. That is completely unacceptable in every possible way.

That is a pathetic excuse, using the virus as being the cause of the extensive damage to the model! Sorry to see you go thru this. Hope you get a full refund. Totally unacceptable. T7

The virus? What on earth does that have to do with poor shipping preparation?

Escalated to ebay and now refunded.

Right On that you were given a full refund! Yes, incompetent seller all the way!

Hope you are able to track another one down later this year. T7

Unfortunately the world has plenty of lazy ebay sellers. Glad things worked out though. ebay generally works in the buyers favor on things like this.
