Solsteam, I m quite happy you did not get the Stuart Pre-P3 because it would have went on ebay for sale in parts as you did with your Marvil. You' re doing business it seems. Bought the whole lot for 35 and selling Marvil parts ONLY for more than 100. Think the seller must regret selling them to you if he sees your ebay adverts.

I refer the honourable members to the remarks of the previous speaker


" Looks like I'll be keeping all of them" - Yeah right!

To be fair, the Mar-Vil did look pretty ropey and incomplete.

Ok Nick. It is incomplete. But even the Pre P3 is incomplete. So should it be sold in parts for 500 lets say ?

Do note that Solsteam is selling ONLY one engine of the 3/4 he bought for 35 for 105 or more. Keep in mind this price is only for one engine. He will be making 3 x as much the money he spent and he will keep the remaining for free. Such greed he has.

He has not uttered a word since my post. Ha ha, obviously !

While we all have our views on what is right and wrong, especially on subjects like buying and selling, it is up to the individual to decide how he or she conducts him/herself in the general marketplace.

Buying and selling on is not illegal and many finance their hobby in this way. Many also like to change their engine collection content as time goes by.

While we as individuals may not like what someone does, it is not against any rules and members of the forum should be mindful of that when making comments in public.
