Martyn,
I realise that as well as being keen, you're young and inexperienced and therefore I'm supposed to be tolerant and indulgent, but this sort of posting is not welcome to me and various others on the NG. I note that you did not post any of the items you've bought recently, and because you're not interested in any of the current ones you think it's okay to post them here.
My view, and I share it with quite a few here, is that eBay items should not be posted until after they are over so that those who are too idle to search through eBay don't suddenly leap on the auctions and send the price skyrocketing. It does happen, all too frequently.
Various people have given you help, photos and advice from this group, repay the favours and leave eBay items until after the auction is finished.

I'm told by several folk that my last post was way too subtle so here is the plain English version: Martyn. Despite today's little blemish we all strive to encourage youthful enthusiasm but....... -You asked for help and scans. A good many went to some trouble to provide both. All they got was a belated blanket ta. That cost you a few -you insist on blathering in text-speak. That costs you a lot more -now you are getting impatient because no one is picking up your question so you post a list of Ebay items on which regular posters here either have or are likely to bid. BTW very few of us exhibit at Dorset for reasons which have been aired to death and can be found in the Google archive. Please take a moment to reflect because you are fast running out of sympathetic ears. regards Roland

There should be more ads pointing to Ebay! Excellent the seller gets a better deal, it opens up the market, some people just buy up engines to sell on at a profit, the normal collector don't get a nose in. What's wrong with spending a few extra quid, if its worth the fair price? If you cant afford it, you should keep your hard earned cash in your pocket, and save up for more for chips and beer. I'm gonna do it all the time now!

Before you rush off with your bulging wallet, just think on a couple of things:
1) On any auction, yours or someone elses, the more buyers, the higher the eventual selling price. If you have so much spare cash that it doesn't affect you, then good luck, most of us have to watch what we spend on our hobby.
2) The "normal collector don't get a nose in" is what you said, but if this 'collector' is prepared to pay over the odds, then why shouldn't he win? After all, the highest bidder will win the auction...
3) Advertising ebay auctions here is fine, but remember that when YOU have found a little gem on ebay that nobody else seems to have noticed, and then right at the last knockings a whole bunch of guys jump in with bids and push it out of your reach, or worse still, one of them pips you with a last-minute bid. All because someone mentioned it on the newsgroup....
4) Buying anything and selling it on at a profit is not illegal, and is what 90% of ebay sellers do most of the time, in fact many of them make a living at it. The goods are available to all and sundry in an open auction environment.
I have no axe to grind either way, but it is not as simple as you make out.
