Default Score on eBay!

Well, managed to snag myself a Warp Hawk and Warp Lab Eagle on eBay recently - both for a fantastic price!

So ... the Hawk is going into storage until I get time to build it properly and the Eagle I believe is heading for the bashing pit, as it has loads of parts that will make some other projects sing!

Hopefully, I'll get time this week to do something more on my compo builds ...

Was well chuffed to get this:



I put mine into a auction about 7 years ago - i was more into figure kits then - and always regretted it.

Picked it up for WELL below what mine went for but then Martin Bower was at the auction and offered to sign it to up the bidding.
So, i'm a happy bunny

Nice!

So what are other people's best buys/bargains on eBay?

I only had a "near miss" on eBay. I bid on a "Making of Space: 1999" book and lost because I wasn't familiar with the bidding/closing process. Talk about noob! Anyway, it was a great learning experience.

The good news is I was able to find a copy of the book in excellent condition on bn.com (Barnes & Nobel). There are a number of suppliers that advertise books long out of print. It was a find. I paid around 11 bucks for the book, including shipping. The one on eBay went for 14, and that didn't include delivery!

Of course, I wish I had kept my original copy. I lost it years ago, and always visited used book stores, hoping I'd come across one. The Internet came to the rescue!

*** UPDATE! ***

I just checked online and there are 3 copies of this book on their site, in case anyone is interested...

I got inspired and bought one of them from B&N. Thanks for the tip, CelticNut!

It'll be interesting to read. Look forward to receive it. Less than 10 bucks.

Only, in my case, no free shipping. P&P is more than the book. Must be flying business class over here.

Glad I could be of assistance!

I especially liked all of the behind-the-scenes information and the photos of the models and diagrams of sets. It gives you a new appreciation for the series.

Thanks for the heads up, I ordered one of the "Making of" books this morning.

I also managed to snag the Starlog Photo Guidebook Of Spaceships for around five bucks! (If you've never seen the Starlog Photo Guidebook series, they are quite entertaining, with a lot of good photos!).

I've got an RU23 Eagle kit in my basement, and part of preparing to build it is to get as many pics of the studio model as possible!

Cool! There is a photo of the Eagle in profile, bow, stern and plan view. Additionally, there are photos of the Hawk, the three different Laser Tanks, the Ultra Probe, a number of alien spaceships and of course, Alpha. Enjoy!
