    100 percent positive feedback, really good comments from buyers, I cannot understand why anyone with a record like that should give a toss what is said on this forum.

    Best be careful I would hate to set off another hissy fit.

    eBay France

    Can someone tell me what is being offered for sale on eBay and what the seller has to say about the forum because eBay France - bless their little cotton socks - has blocked this item to those, like me, who live on the other side of the channel!

    Shouldn't be any reason you can't get it from the link in Post 1, if you can't I can PM or e-mail it to you.

    There are two ways of looking at the comment about Flypast Forum members - it can be looked upon as a warning/vieled threat or the vendor could be a forum member and is having a laugh at what he has seen by way of comments in the past

    A Blenheim, Beaufighter and Beaufort - together in one Museum. Who'd have thought that possible in 1967?

    It can't be of Germanic origin, because it is exactly 13" long....
    Why be your own worse critic, that's what the forum is for.

    Not so fast Mr. Gowans. How do you know it wasn't designed by a Germanic engineer to be exactly 330.2mm long?

    Very cunning, these Germanic engineers....

    By the tone of his description he is very blunt and straight to the point but one thing that is missing is the history.


    If I was a prospective bidder then I would want evidence/proof/history of this item before I made a bid, this is also a double edged sword for the seller as offering the history of the item in his description would no doubt attract more bids.


    Or...........is it that he does not want to give the history of the item as forum members would then know where it came from, possibly landing him in trouble????.


    IMHO he is hiding something.........Note to abij1230 your actions are being watched by forum members

    With that standard of grammar, the seller is obviously a forum member....

    history

    Hi
    for seller history when it has expired I use the following
    take the item number type it in ebay search box and it produces the previously sold item .

    i.e. item 320113725582

    ' Messerschmitt 109G Canopy Relic WW2 Luftwaffe
    This canopy centre section originates from a 109G but it was retro fitted to the Me-109 below.
    Messerschmitt Bf-109 F-4, WNr.5402, II./JG 5 Made forced Landing at Hamna Syltefjord on 17 Nov 1943, aircraft had to make a forced landing on the ice at Hamna bay, due to bad weather and darkness. The pilot was unhurt, while the Messerschmitt was reported 20% damaged.
    unfortunately I don’t know the name of the pilot but no doubt through research will uncover his identity
    Canopy has been carefully bead blasted and primed. '

    cheers

    Does this mean someone is going to have stump up a quid to uncover this, undoubtedly, fascinating history?

    And no, I'm not!

    Wonder why the 'warning' has gone though?

    There is a reason they call it EvilBay!!! Recently saw an oil pressure gauge from " a Spitfire, P-51, a B-17 or a B-52" Hmmmm, didn't know they all shared so much in common!!!! Especially jumping to the jet age with the 52!

    bf 109 propellor blade

    Well if you are looking for something a bit more substantial without a "forum members" health warning attached, on eBay France a slightly bent bf 109 propeller blade is being offered by a seller in Normandy. The opening price is 200 €, there are no bids at present and there are 2 days 9 hours to go. I can't do a hyperlink but the item number is 140166806943.
