You will hear all of those horror stories about being ripped off, items not being sent or just plain false listings, but don’t be scared away. eBay can be a great source of materials and model parts that are hard to find elsewhere.
eBay can be a great source of miniature parts for converters, as eBay sellers often list individual parts from model kits or individual models from box sets.
