OOP Razorback Rehab Ebay Bound?
I took a break from the thunderhawk project to work on an old razorback rehab project. When I purchased this online it looked pretty good. When I received it in the mail....er not so much. This thing is full of glommed glue, replacement cast parts, and so much glue that I was afraid to do too much to it for fear of dissolving the thing.
Remember the warning Ron gave me out rehabbing old tanks? He tried to impart just how difficult it would be if my luck run out with my purchases and I ended up with a real dog.
This razorback is a dog. Now having said that, I think I've managed to paint away a lot of the flaws. I still have transfers, weathering, and dust to apply, but I think this tank could look really good on someone else's shelf.
Yep, I think I am going to ebay this guy. My Ultramarine project is meant for Armies on Parade, so I can't have this creaky old part rebuild tank part of it. It looks great from two feet away, not two inches. Could someone tell me what the ebay experience was like for a first time seller?
