    Maybe that explains this listing: "4 Tires Goodyear Hi Miler 16.5 Ford F350 Truck 2WD 1:25 AMT Model Pickup U"   that is listed for $10,000.00 +Free Shipping or Best Offer. What a deal!!
    This was for the tires only! This is the same seller that listed a 1:25 Dodge truck grill for $9,999.00. I missed out on that one too!
    Maybe not ISIS, but interesting to say the least.
    On another note, I have gotten a lot of great deals on Ebay, and have never been taken. I have also made some good sells on Ebay as well. I like Ebay. Most of my kits have come by way of Ebay. When buying, I try to check the location of the item and the feedback of the seller.
    I'm glad that these scams have been pointed out by you guys. I have learned a few things to look for when buying on Ebay from this very forum. Thanks!

    I hadn't noticed this going on until I saw these two threads. I now see them every week. Every one from China with free shipping. Every one is hundreds of dollars worth of models or Resin parts for less than $30. Every one has 0 feedback. Every one is "But-it-Now." My question is this: what is the motive? It seems like a lot for just $25 or so. I realize that they will receive your name and address, but what other info can they get? I've sold on Ebay before, and I don't think that I had access to any information regarding the buyer. Is there some way they are able to access your info for a larger payoff, or is this simply several $25 scams?

    I like the green with the green lights. It looks like a night time picture of the real thing.

    Will these be available from A.I.T.M. or directly from you? I'm sure that I need one.

    Very nice work!!! One of my favorite Bronco builds yet!
  12. DRIPTROIT 71 added a post in a topic Galion Tandem Roller Under Construction   

    Very impressive work!! There's been rumors about a giant laser that shrinks things down to scale. I think that you may have found one.
  13. DRIPTROIT 71 added a post in a topic Lonestar   

    Very nice looking truck!! It could pass for the real thing in some of those photos. Great work!
  14. DRIPTROIT 71 added a post in a topic Any consensus on a new photo sharing service?   

    Flickr has worked great for me for about a year now. Much better than Photobucket.

    I like it!! Nice work!!
