This same seller had most of those models on bidding auctions last week with several bids on them going up into several hundreds of $$ and now they're up again at even higher prices. Either his reserve prices were not met or something does not meet the eye. Thankfully I have most of what he's listed anyway.

Ebay is hit or miss. Many collectors tried selling some very rare models on ebay only to discover they were getting paltry sums for them in return. These auctions above all had reserve prices and inspite of that, the prices came well over $150 for each model and I was expecting them all to be gone by now but with the exception of one or two, they all appear to have been relisted.

If you think that one was expensive, look at the final auction price of this VS A346:

1/200 Lysia Virgin Atlantic A340-600 very rare!! - eBay (item 220572178218 end time Mar-21-10 15:59:23 PDT)

And there's another one with a starting bid of $100.

I notice these activities too. The price goes crazy and most of his collection are re-listed. My instinct tells me something is weird but those models are rare if you can afford it.

yes, VERY strange indeed.

This is usually the case when the seller 'successfully' sells the models and realize the 'market price' and somehow have 'extra' in stock...

OR, the seller has 1 of each, and previous offerings were bogus and want to sell at higher price...
