I can't believe that there are 18 bids.

Come on, if these people be patient they can find another seller who's going to sell the plane for WAAAAY less money.

Paying 500 dollars for a piece of metal of 12cm is simply nonsense to me.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

It reached now 661$ (410GBP) !!!

I don't think that anyone is willing to pay all this money for one model only !!

I think that 2 buyers are challenging each other and at the end they will not pay anything for the seller.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

I would laugh my a** off if another Air Canada A330 pop up on eBay right after the end of this auction, and costing about 15 dollars.

The owner of the million-dollar-A330 will be like ''NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO''

I admit I was part of that, but only early on. Then it went nuts and I called it a night.

Final price ended at $652 CAD!!!

652CAD!! :eek The recommend price for this model is around $35 bucks... so it's 18 times greater than the recommend price!!

I don't believe someone will pay for this.. this is just a game

I was crazy going into the $100 mark. But tere are people more crazy than me. Maybe like you said, just a game and the guy won't pay.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

I wonder if the guy ever paid for that listing.

That being said, it surely jacked up the asking price for a new listing of this same model.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

This model is not that rare. I bought 2 of them from a factory in China and 1 more from a member in this forum. I paid not more than $100 for 3 of them.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

It's just a game. You sell something on E-Bay, get some friends or family with different accounts or even yourself, then bid up the price. People see it and believe it's rare and get into it. Next thing you know, the seller has tricked people out of good money for an item worth much less. If it wasn't for Wings900, I probably would have been tricked a few times myself.

re: Crazy Price on eBay

It works the other way, too!
I bought my OV-105 for 11€
But I remeber before 2001 it was almost normal that rare models reached prices over 100$ and people payed it. And today, most OG prices fall and fall

You're right. I've paid $3.49 for a Delta 767 sample not long ago.
