Have some people lost the plot?

Or am I missing something here

Last week a 1/96 scale Revell Saturn V sold for $209. The seller told everyone it was a $100 model. I'm not surprised at anything on eBay any more. Jerry 47

This kit has been OOP for several years it was announced last week as being re-released by Airfix this year.
Of course this news takes a long time to filter through and 'unscrupulous' (some may say clever) sellers will try to offload their kits while the market commands high prices.
Expect to see lots of their modern 1/600 scale range of warships as they are being re-released also, and I know the HMS Devonshire kit has been a regular high price item.
Happy modelling Ant Phillips

The 1/96 Revell Saturn V kit originally retailed for $12.00 when it was first released in the US in 1969. The 1982 Revell "History Makers" reissue sold for $50. The most recent reissue by Revell Germany sold in the US for just under $100. The seller was touting an accurate original price if it was the Revell Germany item.
This 1/96 Revell Saturn V kit should not be confused with the 1/144 Monogram Saturn V. The Revell Saturn V stood four feet high when completed. The Monogram Saturn V was under three feet tall and originally sold for $6.00 in the US. Monogram discontinued their Saturn V, Lunar Module, Apollo Command/Service Module, Space Buggy, and 36 Space Missiles kits in 1971. Monogram's suplus stock was apparently acquired by the Tandy Company and the kits were sold (just in time for Christmas!) through Radio Shack stores. The Saturn V sold for a whopping $2.49!
