It's been posted before, and if I remember correctly, someone here bought some from him. I'm pretty sure he'd be willing to ship, you can always contact him and ask.

Don't bother wasting your time. He even did a video where he poured lighter fluid on a brand new Transtar 11 kit and lit it on fire.

Craig, if this is the guy I think it is,it's the real deal. That phone number seems familiar,so I'm pretty sure that it's him. I got a great deal from him on some kits. Looks like I need to give him another call. Here's a link to a thread that I posted what I bought from him: http://www.modelcars...l=&fromsearch=1

Are these $25.00 each like it says in the ad??? And wheres the video that he burns a transtar kit?? That seems kinda strange.

I texted him last night and he told me the transtars were 70 each, dumps were 40 each, t600s were 30 each and the pete 352 was 30....just a few though

I plan on ordering 2 of the dump trailers, 2 of the t600s and 1 of the pete 352.

That was on a facebook group, the video was quickly removed as he seemed to have hit quite a nerve in that group. Back in Dec/Jan he seemed to have teased more people by showing the pics of his stuff and saying it was for sale but never sold to anyone on that facebook group. Sounds like he has changed his mind and things are working out for some of you so that is good to hear. All the kits look like they are factory sealed so you will get a mint factory fresh kit.

Its all about trust. I can't recommend this fellow because I have never dealt with him but there are a lot of great guys on this group I have dealt with. Just check the great trader section to see if he is there, if not then perhaps wait to buy or trade from someone you know.

I was just told about this topic and thought I'd let you guys know about my dealings with this person.
It took me well over 6 weeks to buy some kits from him and between me and the person I was buying some of the kits for because he was getting the run around about shipping the kits.
We spent around $700 on kits whit him and then went off on me on facebook about he thought I was making money off of the kits I brought from him?
I got kits from him for $20 to $35 and then when he saw me post some photos of the kits I got for someone else he sends me an email saying if I wanted more they would now be between $35 to $55!!

Anyways if any of you want to know more about my dealongs with him feel free to email me.
Here is what I was able to buy from him, but after all I went through I wouldn't buy from him again.

These are the kits I got for someone else.

And this is what I got for mysel.
