And it crashes.. horrifically..

Had a bit of a horror story with this one. Ive done some repair work and shes looking ok now, sad though. Ill post proper pictures when i have access to my camera.

Bought a Tristar off ebay.. and it comes in a flimsy crappy cardboard box and badly packed, and there's SELLOTAPE stuck to the model to hold it. Yes SELLOTAPE stuck to a model with decals, surfice to say, the decals ripped off, and on top of this, the box has clearly been dropped, and the entire wing has crumpled.. Not happy at all.

I had a model arrive one time from ebay, and the user had just packed it in a bubble wrapped envelope... Needless to say when I received the package it had been torn open, and the fuselage was missing. I had two wings, two horizontal stabilizers, the landing gear, and the vertical stabilizer, but no fuselage. Some people just don't care when it comes to shipping!

I decided to keep the model and get a 75% refund, I've repainted the red, straightened the wing, and painted over the wing damage (though its not perfect) yeah I was raving mad! But ohh well.. These things happen

That is not cool.... Insurance? And the tape holding the plane in place is the shippers fault! I would be MAD!!!!
