Default Waves Qatar, too good to be true?

Has anyone every used this site, the prices and shipping looks far too cheap?

My general rule of thumb is if it looks too god it probably is

i'm suspicious.

He or she have f.e. 45 pieces BA B747 400 Hong Kong Tail from Inflight 200 in Stock. Or even better 84 pieces JFOX SIA B747 400 Star Alliance.

take a look for Inflight models> https://www.wavesqatar.com/index.php...yword=inflight

This one is true for sure ...

JC Wings Iberia A340 600 - 94 pieces in Stock.

jcwings models > https://www.wavesqatar.com/index.php...ort=20a&page=2

maybe is somebody brave enough and will buy something on this site..

wish you luck.

Fascinating! But I take the point about it looking too good to be true.
However, for the courageous, there may be some treasures there. Interestingly each time you click on the large 'LuckyShop' name/logo at top left of the page, it loads a different selection of random items.

There are no 1:400 aircraft models it seems and I'm not interested in 1:200, but there are some great old cars such as Dinky Toys if that floats your boat. Entering Dinky Toys
into the Search window brought up several hundred results from early pre-WW2 to late examples. There were quite few rare airliners including an Air France Caravelle.

Thanks, I'll have to mess around and see what else there is. But I'm still not feeling courageous!

Default Re: Waves Qatar, too good to be true?

so I put a sold out ARD 200 BOAC 747 (92 in stock) and went to checkout. shipping to u.k was..................................FIVE DOLLARS!! WTF? so I added a a sold out rare CORGI B17 'LITTLE MISCHIEF' (72 in stock) and shipping was still $5! it said shipping weight was.........................0lbs!


Total Items: 2 Weight: 0lbs Amount: £ 64.28



Qty.


Item Name

Unit

Total


  Inflight200 ARD200 1 200 BOAC Boeing 747-100 G-AWNB (ARD2023) Model Air-Plane £ 30.27 £ 30.27

  Corgi 1 72 Scale AA33316 - Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress 324 Bomb Sq 1944 £ 34.01 £ 34.01




SHIPPING




Shipping Method:


This is currently the only shipping method available to use on this order.


Flat Rate


£ 3.78

Best Way

Payments by credit card/other. no paypal.


and under description it says USED. so are all 60+ used???


Item specifics

Condition:
Used: An item that has been previously used. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections.See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab... Read moreabout the condition .


but you can't open a new tab! text looks suspiciously copied from an ebay listing. pictures too???????????


so I sent a message asking how come models are so cheap. and postage. why total weight is zero pounds! and WHERE are they based? models shipped from? what is bestway postage? etc etc. but I don't expect a reply.
