    Lots of stuff on web site 'relics from the front' is this guy genuine or dubious histories?

    Probably about right give or take! They seem to survive in reasonable numbers - I guess due to post war traders seeing their allotment potential !

    With Ebay there are some great genuine sellers but there are also the ones that give history to any old bit claiming it to be from this and that, do as much research as you can and provenance is key.
    There are a lot on here who sell on ebay and from what I can see they are 100% genuine and have no reason to fake the representation, if in doubt do not purchase

    Ju88 Tur

    Flying Pencil- are you referring to the door that I thought may be Ju 88?

    If so happy to be corrected as without seeing it - it was closest guess - not many good books on He111...

    it was a guess that it was Ju88 based on the attached images.

    Oh, that DOES look intriguing!
    There is a square opening at back of He111 too (looking for image).

    The existence of the lock built into it really makes me wonder. That is highly unusual, and it looks original to part.

    Once in while, about 1 every year, can find a real gem on eBay!

    Note sure if obvious by now to all, but I am on hunt for Do 17 images, but eyes out for parts.
    Happened to come across this a month back.

    Funny I did not jump on it right away even though I instantly recognized it, but was not long before I was making plans!

    To be positive I did my research to confirm what it was, here are images from manual.

    I have looked and though about all other LW aircraft, and no other used this same brace. This is exclusively a Do 17 part.

    Oh, wonder where?
    The seller reported it was found at Gumrak, close to Volgograd.
    Previously called Stalingrad.

    While the RAFM piece looks good, note the end pieces, the knob and bearing are gone.
    I plan to clean up mine, maybe use "dry ice" method posted in other thread. Goal to get brace screw adjusters working.

    PS: will post image of it in my hands soon(tm)
    Ok, this is it!

    He also has a 'Corsair' grip. Too long for a Corsair grip and the wrong part number. Most likely Jetranger helicopter or similar. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW2-ORIGI....c100290.m3507

    £920.00 for that Sunderland APU. About what to expect.

    Is there a list of eBay sellers we need to be especially careful of?

    Probably better to be factual instead not have a list. This thread helps if people can say if something is what it purports to be. I.e. Stick to facts

    It would be a great idea, IF people could be relied on not to put a sellers name on the list, purely in order to try and stop rivals from bidding on items that they are bidding on, or just out of spite.

    UNFORTUNATELY THEY CAN'T.

    Maybe if, when commenting on a 'doubtful' item here, the item description and the (easily checked) reason that it's not what they say it is ONLY are mentioned, a list of those sellers name-checked might just work. A list without providing specific evidence might not be of use, and can be used wrongly, as above.

    I know that many of us will know the reasons from just looking, depending on the item, but the point is to alert the unwary. Putting the exact listing description would help with anyone googling it as well.

    This doesn't include the 'what is it really' kind of post. After all, that will either produce what it is or might even produce the answer that it is what the seller says it is. It will be helpful either way.

    Very nice, but too heavy duty in the price department for me I’m afraid.

    The Stirling door looks interesting, think both prices are optimistic, but then going by the recent sale of a Tornado hud cover for £156 there are fools out there waiting to part with their money.
