PostSubject: Custom 1/25th Caprice model wagon kit    Fri Sep 14, 2012 4:39 pm

Some of you know that I recently sold my '95Caprice wagon.
While I had it, I wanted to make a scale model of it to display
in my model car collection.
I found a place called AUTO HAUS that in their catalog had
such a kit, but it is only a partial. You have to add some component
pieces from a stock Revell-Monogram kit to complete it.
Well,--- I bought the custom body kit and a stock Impala SS kit to
make this model, but never got around to it!
Now, since I no longer have the wagon I want to sell the model kits,
brand-new, still in the boxes, unassembled for $65.00 plus shipping.
I even have some left-over DGGM touch-up from my wagon that I
will throw in, if that is a color you would like to have.




The price is what I have paid for the two kits. If interested, call me @863-858-6688
or send me an e-mail to rkmdogs@tampabay.rr.com

Too bad I didn't get home earlier from work tonight. I would have pulled the trigger on that deal as well.

Well send me the info, because the Canadian Cheapskate thought that shipping came free!
He insulted me, trying to counter with a bargain offer, and felt that I should include the shipping!
I just went thru a hassle, selling some Bilstein shocks to a Canadian --- and it was not worth the
hassle!
So, if you want the model kits, contact me with your info @ rkmdogs@tampabay.rr.com, or call me. cheers

lol, Bob, thanks for making my day. The only cheapskate around here is you. You dicked me around for weeks last year when I was trying to get you a console.

Yes, it is SOOOOO tough to fill out a value on the little green US customs tag. Must have taken at least five seconds of your precious time. Sorry you don't take paypal, too. Perhaps you can start up a carrier pigeon payment service.

Just FYI for everyone: modelhaus has this kit for $40, and the SS kit sells on ebay for under $20. Happy shopping.

Also, I'm posting my email to Bob, and his response. You can judge for yourself.

You are forgetting a very important point.
Those kits did not get to my house for free--- I HAD TO PAY SHIPPING!
Modelhaus charged me almost $8.00 to ship, and the SS kit cost me $12.00 to ship!
That alone is $20.00 in shipping!
NO I am not comfortable with your chinzy counter offer --- I had to go thru HELL on the
last parts that I shipped to Canada, with a declarations procedure, money exchange & my time
and transportation to go to the post office and the bank.
I reject your cheapness counter offer!!!!!!! You really did not want them. Go find them somewhere else!!

Bob, the wagon kit is $40 on Modelhaus, and the SS kit goes for under $20 on ebay. Can we stick to the $65 price, shipped? I think that is reasonable.

If you're not comfortable with that, go ahead and offer it to the next in line.

Jason.

You sound like some of the politicians down here --- ignoring facts!
I don't recall any communication with you when I was looking for my console,
so those comments are not worth the ink... AND, I just went back and looked at the blogs on my console quest.
You logo is NOWHERE in all the communications!
Model Haus adds a handling fee AND POSTAGE to their catalog prices.
The price you just posted was from their 2011 catalog, which was changed
in March 2012, but I did not buy the new one because they charge $3.00,
just for the catalog.
The Revell-Monogram kit is no longer made, so good luck finding one.--- and
e-Bay prices also do not include shipping, and sometimes handling, depending
on the seller.
Thanks for posting the e-mail messages, to show folks here just how CHEAP
you are! Thank you!!!

You are digging yourself deeper. NO ONE marks up their parts around here expecting to get shipping back. To do that is laughable.

1992Modelhaus Chevrolet Caprice Station Wagon Price : $40.00

Revell Impala SS kit, buy it now, $14.99 on ebay

Happy shopping, everyone!

Why didn't you mention that the shipping on the Revell link you just posted is
$8.99 STATESIDE?

All I am looking for is to cover what I have paid out for these kits.
If that is not to your liking, then go order them somewhere else and get off my back!

Jason,
That was not your fault.
We were both ignorant of the procedures that the Post Office
down here puts you thru, and my bank was no help either.
They had to call someone to find out what to do with a
Canadian money order!
I was not trying to poke at you in any way.
Did you get the shocks O.K.?

Yes it is. In fact, my local hobby shop has two in stock. Plus.. you think the buyer has to pay what YOU paid for shipping when you bought the items? That's a laugh. Last I checked they should pay what it costs you to ship it to them. I don't think anyone here ever makes up the difference on shipping whenever they sell something. I know I'm happy when I break even!

And what's the big deal shipping to Canada? Done it several times with ebay stuff. Fill out the paperwork and thats it. If there are any fees it'd be the buyers responsibility since they pay shipping and handling.

Also, this is like the 3rd of 4th time you've flown off the handle on someone. You need to relax, you're going nuts because you didn't like a counter offer.

Different strokes for different folks.
When I posted this listing, I quoted a price, like it or not.
How that price is derived is not up for a haggling discussion when you say
"I'm buying it." Read post #1192!
If you want to haggle, don't tell me you're buying it!
Go to a flea market if you want to haggle.
And if you don't like the offer, don't respond!

The two kits are packed in a priority mail, flat rate box, ready to be shipped.
They are still available--- and the price is still $65.00, plus shipping.

If anybody else wants them, let me know. Thank you. Very Happy

Update!
Well I have been properly chastised, and made aware of the current pricing on these items.
So, I made a reduced price offer to Lake Effect and Caddy Daddy 13 for the sum of
$50.00, plus shipping, but neither one of them has returned a message, so I have to
presume that they are no longer interested.
THEREFORE ---I make that same offer to anyone else that would like these two
model kits ----- $50.00 + shipping to your address.
You can still contact me @ rkmdogs@tampabay.rr.com

Somebody surely wants this bargain, I hope!

Wrong! It 's hard to send anyone a check when they don't respond to the private messages that are sent to them. Since you sent me one previously, I must assume you know how to send and receive them.

I sent you two private messages. The first asking to send me your address so that I could put a check in the mail and, the second message was an apology for a typo in the first message that made it seem like I was insulting you, of which I had no intention of doing. Since I got absolutely no response from you, I figured you must have taken the first note mistakenly, and did not push the subject


Try sending me your address as a private message back to me and I will put the check in the mail, just like I said I would on 09/17/12

Dave, why would you want to deal with this guy? Personally, I would spend ten bucks just to avoid him.

It would appear that a serious buyer is now in contact with the seller.

They can carry out the remainder of the transaction via PM or email.

Since little or no good is on the horizon for this thread, it is now closed.

rkmdogs - if your sale falls through, you are welcome to start a new thread.
