Default NWA 747-400 on eBay went for $99???? WTF?

Now I don't know the details behind this whether this ACTUALLY sold for $99, but you'll never see this again. A mint NWA 747-400, probably Space Models I guessing 1/50. I'm kicking myself for not seeing this.

no need to kick yourself. The seller has no feedback at all. You would have wasted your time anyway.

Hi Jetjack74 & leoteo

The model certainly had some shortfalls:

QUOTE:

Overall in very good condition. However, three of four engines broke at the pylon connecting point. As you can see from the photos, all parts are there. Just need to epoxy in place, leaving a scarcely visible hairline crack.

END QUOTE.

Plus as leotard has mentioned, this seller has "0" feedback. How confident would one be who purchased this model, to have someone who's never sold anything on eBay, to correctly package it carefully & ship it safely.

I also agree with leoteo, no need to kick yourself.

Other model opportunities will always be there in the future.



Regards, Robert

Thats right alot of people are kicking themselves for not getting this because this was a once in a lifetime chance that someone got lucky enough to grab in time before anyone else got to it. Indeed the buyer had no idea on its value and is a first time ebayer and therefore set the buy it now price for 99 dollars and admitted he should"ve put it higher. Oh well, cant win em all lol.

Zero feedback on the seller is a red flag!
Usually these are spam postings - I report them to Ebay when I see them.
We all should know that a 1/50 scale will never sell for $100.
