Default Product Enterprise 44 inch Eagle Transporter

Just saw this on e-bay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/space-1999...3D171751768118

Is this kosher? I remember seeing a pic of the 4 prototypes PE made, only 1 of each type but this seller says he has 3 models to sell.

Personally, I'm preferring the finish of the 23" over the 44". While they have real alluminium engine bells on the 44 they then spoil it by have rubbish fake metal scanner dishes on the command module. Mind you, those fake chrome engine bells on the 23". Seriously ! They haven't improved with age.

Oooo, it's been removed. "Error on listing" apparently. This is what was being sold.

He removed it because he didn't want it to go cheap, which is not right! If you list it put a number to it, don't cheat the system and take your toy home when you get mad! Ebay should slap him with a warning at the least! And is it really a PE 44" or is that crap too?

IIRC, you get three strikes a year for removing stuff early. After that, if you do it again you get hit with final fees for whatever price it was at when the listing is cancelled, or the start price it was at if there are no bids.

Didn't this get listed a few months ago, with no other info than the auction title and that pic?

not sure about this - I'm sure that if the price isn't going how you want it you can withdraw it without a problem unless its in the last 12 hours..?

Not sure if it was listed before this time! It's plain trickery and unethical! I emailed him and he said he is waiting for a good offer!

Hit completed listings and you'll see this is the third time in a month he has played the same trick.

He definitely also listed it a few months back for a round 3 grand. I think there's a thread here somewhere about it.
