Default eBay store for my personal collection

I've created an eBay store with some of my personal models for sale and will continue to add to it as I inventory/get more ready for sale. I always like to list here first but I need to move models along so they end up going to the "store" at some point.

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.

I would buy two if the shipping wasn't this insane

Let's face it, since post offices around the world realised how much they can make through people purchasing online their greed has known no bounds. It's no longer viable to buy die-cast from any great distance away. Shipping costs are not the seller's fault.

I'm not blaming him in any way! Aritzer is in no way to blame for the shipping cost I know that. But it is just a bummer because it are really nice models!

I bought a Braniff 747 SP from Aritzer for next to nothing a few weeks back and even with shipping costs, the plane was cheap, and after only minor repairs to the undercarriage (yes, this was known about prior to purchase, hense the price) she looks as good as new.
