To be clear for others reading into your post, I was asked to hold a model but this was the second request for the model to be held and given I was selling 30+ models I couldn't accommodate all requests arriving and I felt guilty for not being able to hold this for him and offered him free shipping for a future purchase. The "problem" later presented itself when he asked to purchase a model for $55 and shipping was $23. I didn't think it fair to me if someone bought a $55 plane and I had to pay $23 to ship it, that's a huge loss for me. My free shipping offer was contingent on a purchase amount that would at least allowed me to break even and not take a major loss. I'm not a retailer that can take losses and write them off, I'm just a small time collector trying to liquidate some of his "too large" collection.
I wanted to clarify as I don't want anyone thinking I'm not upfront and a genuine seller as I know many members here have been kind enough to voice their positive experiences (not to mention my 100% positive dealing on eBay) with me.
