Model Pricing.
« on: December 17, 2011, 05:20:54 PM »

Are you sitting comfortably? Are you constrained to your chair with heavy leather straps? Yes? Then I'll begin.
I came across this "thing" in a Sunday supplement magazine. It appears to be not much more than 12" long. Doesn't seem to have any radio gear or suchlike.
It's advertised as a "Union Jack Pond Yacht".....................at £150.000.
I think we'd all better start re-evaluating our models if some idiots (customers?) are willing to pay that much for this bit of crud.

Is it still for sale ?
It will probably sit on a shelf for a long time  <*<

I have the original issues of Sgt Pepper's and Hotel California are they worth anything?

That's the opening line from "Free Bird" from the American southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd

It would make a good ongoing thread - which lyric
The ones for flags, ship parts, and all things nautical are too much for me {:-{
but lyrics - well maybe I'd get the odd answer (pre 1980 that is)
what do you guys think?

And my all time most hated was Tie a Yellow Ribbon (round the old oak tree, blah blah blah)
1973 by Dawn featuring Tony Orlando - I just couldn't escape it. <*< in May 1973, "Tie A Yellow Ribbon"
sold 3 million records in three weeks. When the dust settled, BMI calculated that radio stations had
played it 3 million times—that's seventeen continuous years of airplay  <:( <:( <:((that last bits from wiki)
