You may remember the last one on Ebay sold for 122GBP!

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132335635120?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&fromMakeTrack=true

I know someone who does have one and I am sure he could be persuaded to part with it for that sort of money!

Regards,
John.

Just goes to show that Ebay is worth the fees if you have a "desirable" item.
I am sure the person I know would be willing to part with it for a reasonable sum.

I have a feeling they were about £80 from BB originally - so that would seem to be a reasonable price for a s/h (untouched) kit - but I guess they are worth whatever someone is prepared to pay for them...

They were very nice kits too for their time and very good value. Fortunately, there seem to be a growing number of new models (in the sense of G3 "wooden" kits) coming along now and they probably only cost about the same as the BB wagon did (when an adjustment for inflation is made). I can't remember exactly when BB brought out their wagon kit but it must be getting on for 20 years now - can it really be that long ago?

Good old evil bay. I have only ever purchased 2 items on ebay and paid a reasonable amount of money but on both items i lost the sale and was offered a seconcd chance bid as the winning bid obviously decided they did not want it. Also it seems to me there is a certain amount of ringing going on where a so called anonymous bidder is bidding against you to drive the sale price up sky high.

Guilty as charged. I’ve built one and liked it and my top bid was the same amount as an open from GRS. Feel a bit guilty now knowing someone else on here is after one too.
