My score from the show today in Anniston, AL

The 2 semi kits in the bottom left are a Sealed Revell of Germany Ferrari kit and a open but sealed Italeri Subaru World Rally Team kit. The WRX is a Tamiya car included in the kit.

The bottom Right is a Tamiya 1/12 Renult.

You should have waited longer to buy!!!! . All the Tamiya cars that he had ended up being marked down for 6.00 each and the Revell/ Monogram stuff was 5.00. He tried to sell me the 1/12 for 60.00, then 55.00, then 50.00, i walked away and came back an hour later and got it for 45.00. I talked to him several times and he told me that he had all ready made him money back on the collection he had bought and kept alot so everything he made that day was all extra cash. I almost made him an offer on everything he had left but i spent a good bit of cash that day.

The kits I got from him started at $10 and by the end of the day was down to $6 also. I had him down to $45 on the Renault also, but Steve had me some items held under his table and still had to go pay him and I couldn't cut it any closer. Some great buys all around that day though !! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Got in a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, mildly gluebombed but in nice shape overall. Also got a mostly intact "Dr. Crook's Travelling Medicine Show" Show Rod. I can make any missing pieces. Even the decals are workable. :)

Yes, Steve Buckner. I got a few kits and decals from him also. You and Austin were there talking with him several times while I was over there.

Galaxie and a Caddy. Vent windows are broken on caddy, from eBay,seller didn't mention and angle of picture you couldn't tell. Contacted seller and they offered refund,don't know if it's worth sending back. Especially if I have to pay shipping. Though I wouldn't have paid $50 knowing they were broke.

Just got home from a vacation to SoCal. While I was there I was able to attend the Keller show. Between that show and a friend who lives there, this is what I brought home with me.

Can the Caddy vent windows be fixed? I have never fixed any. I like the johan snap caddy but I never find one I can afford. always wanted one...

Greg, that's one of the reasons why I'll always pass on an EBAY item if I can't see EVERY side of the car from every angle. Some sellers avoid showing pictures of damaged or warped areas of a car, which is stupid because they'll usually have to take it back and refund your money if that's what you decide. Yes you'd be out the return postage, but fortunately vent window posts are a relatively easy fix although you'd rather not have to go through that..

As Rich said it is an easy fix and it gets covered in foil but if I'd have known I would've bid accordingly. Maybe $40 tops. Think the snap ran me under $30,just have to be persistent. There's a buy it now over there for $90,crazy times we live in.

I agree,the more pictures the better. I think this particular seller models aren't their forte. So I made them aware and hopefully it will help them and others with future model auctions.

Spend quite a bit of time on ebay and it seem to be an trend the recent months to part out vintage kits and

sell part by part. Anyone else noticed? Anyway,i got this years road tax,so there is $500 out the window.

I'm happy with that - when the starting prices are reasonable. If an original part I need bids up past the Modelhaus price I'll let it go (unless Modelhaus doesn't make the part). I'll have pieces from four different '61 Continentals in my convertible when it's done.
