If someone is wanting to clone an Enerjet Egg Crate, the correct cone/transition is in this TARC pack.

Check out the shipping on this 1/100 Saturn 1B.

I don't think so.

Another attempt to rip off ebay by selling the item at a low price, then recovering profit via shipping costs. Chinese sellers were notorious for this several years ago, selling items for $1, then asking for $100 for shipping.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

That was true many years ago, but today eBay charges their fees on the shipping charge as well. So when you see a shipping charge listed like that it is almost always a mistake, and almost always caused by allowing eBay’s automatic system to figure out the shipping to each buyers location. If I see a ridiculous shipping charge like that on an item I am interested in I contact the seller and I am almost always thanked for letting them know.

For anyone that turns their own balsa, here's a great deal (for now) on hunks of balsa.

42"x4"x3"
https://www.ebay.com/itm/364175441701

34"x3"x3"
https://www.ebay.com/itm/364175440730

27"x1"x2"
https://www.ebay.com/itm/364175441284

It appears this guy is selling out the inventory of a longtime closed hobby shop. Lots of really cool old items have been being listed. Lots of cool stuff sold already as well.

I've seen lots of balsa, AeroGloss, Testors paint and glue, etc.

Also lots of NIB Cox glow engines. Old rare, RC equipment. Just neat to see all of this stuff again. I remember seeing these items in the hobby shop I frequented as a kid and drooling over it all.

I received this today. Like new other than being opened.

If you take it out of the box it will be almost impossible to fit it all back in again.....

I agree, don’t take it out of the box unless you are confident you can get it back in or are building it.
