My HOn30 modeling has not had a good week.

My vision problems led to drilling the truck mounting holes
slightly off center on the truck bolsters of the two hoppers.

Efforts to fill the holes and re-drill were not too successful.

:sad:

Regards, Dave L.

" This is not the first time I have been burned on eBay,
by incomplete descriptions or misleading information.

All I can say is buyer beware.
The seller does not accept returns."



Hi Dave

I have made over 1800 buys on eBay.
I don't recall EVER being "burned", as some say.

If a description is incomplete or misleading,
or if photos do not show items faults,
the Seller HAS NOT followed 'The eBay Rules',
& all bets ARE OFF as far as 'No Returns' !

'Does Not Accept Returns'
Is VOID straight away, in the case of such listings.


It may take some effort to start an 'eBay Case',
but you should NOT be out by a single Dime here.

Anyone who gets "burned" IMHO is a bit daft,
seeing as there are provisions to cover a buyer.

Use them, that's what they're there for !
They work, IF you apply their rules & system.

:us:

Eddie

Eddie

The seller has offered to take the engine back, but I suspect
he will not reimburse the almost $30 shipping both ways and sales tax.

Just getting to the post office will be a difficulty.

I have bought items that arrived with missing parts,
and incorrect trucks (old Rapido couplers instead of the described MT ones).

Once I bought an N-scale car with ruined paint on one side,
that was not shown in the photos.

And now this latest problem with the N-scale engine.
We'll see how it all turns out.

Regards, Dave L.

Hi Dave

You have a private message with some suggestions.

Good Luck.

Today I started the conversion of the MDC 2-8-0 boiler

by using two little holes to mount it to a piece of wood with little screws.

I was hoping that the Dremel 1.5 inch blade

would make a quick job of cutting off the old domes.

The blade worked well and cut off the first dome quickly.

I was surprised to find the second dome was hollow

and was attached as a separate piece.

After considerable grinding and hand filing, this is close to final shape.

After taking this photo, I did a little more work with the file.

Some inside trimming of the cab enabled a preliminary trial fit.

I'll have to fill the space between the cab front and boiler top.

Update:

The seller will take back the engine,
and refund all my expenses.

I am very pleased that I do not even pay return postage.

This is my first return on eBay,
and I have to say it was a good experience. 

Regards, Dave L.
