How about contacting ebay and letting them know that the seller has been informed as to the provenance of the model and, if he does not change the description, he is deliberately wrongfully describing the item  ???

I wouldn't waste your time if I were you.

On another Forum, we noticed a vehicle for sale on EBay which we knew had been clocked, by about 75,000 miles. We had documentary evidence to corroborate this fact. 15 members of the forum got in touch with EBay and they did...

...absolutely sod all.

Despite all their rhetoric they really don't give a ****. As long as they get their fees nothing matters.

As my wife so rightly pointed out ebay is just a modern electronic version of the small ads in your local paper, isn't it? Would you get irate if they printed something erroneous as a private ad, or even someone like the Railway Modeller? Buyer beware is always the best policy.....only buy what you know...

It always amuses (and amazes) me how many shops, as well as websites, think that the word "antique" in their trading name automatically qualifies them to "hyper-inflate" their asking prices !

Similarly the four-letter word 'Rare'...

That usually just means 'not available new' - the fact that there were thousands made fairly recently, or even that there are several others listed on ebay at the same time, doesn't seem to come into it!
