So I was perusing ebay looking for datsun models (hoping someone has made a '80 510 wagon...might just give up on that) when I notice there's a lot of Revell Datsun 510 parts for sale. I really have to give it to the guy/girl for being creative trying to make some extra money. Selling PARTS of a model for a somewhat reasonable price....typically $3 plus shipping. Now that would be great if it were a kit that was no longer available for reasonable prices but something as readily available as a revell datsun 510? this cat is trying to make $200 on one kit!
I would be willing to pay $3 shipped for a windshield from a Johan Cutlass or maybe a pair of bedsides from a 64 Ford pickup. I guess if a person needs but one bumper or hood from the kit because in their kit it was either not properly formed or just missing and spending the ridiculous amount for a new kit now-a-days (upwards of $30 for a re-issued AMT 49 ford).
Really I guess I am just ranting now. I suppose I can't fault the guy for trying to get ahead. I just wonder how much money I could make if I were to list each of my parts box parts up for sale at $3 each. ....50 lb of model parts at $3 each...I could retire!
