    That was quick. They usually wait for the last minute snipe attack!

    I’m a fan of Fire And Forget bids. I calculate what I’m willing to pay, bid that once, and walk away - the bid is either snipe proof, or they were willing to pay more than I was.

    Well said Bruce. I know several people who have that philosophy.

    This dude from Germany is apparently selling such a sweet collection I'm falling into a diabetic coma...

    Money could be a problem since apparently he doesn't accept Paypal. He states that you should contact him for international shipping. I'm fine for the moment so you won't bid against me

    Generally how play the game too, lessons learnt of getting my fingers burnto in a bidding war only to pay well over retail for anow item.

    That's all very well, but you can end up paying your maximum time and time again.

    An early "max bid" just gives everyone else time to bid repeatedly, edging closer and closer to your max.
    If you win, you pay your max.
    If you get outbid, then, as you say, they were willing to pay more than you.

    I admit it, I'm a sniper...
    I enter my "max bid" with just a couple of seconds to go; if it's not enough, well, they were willing to pay more than I was - no biggie.
    If I win, it's frequently for a great deal less than my max; often only 1/4 or so.
    I've saved a fortune over the years.
    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!

    I hardly buy anything from eBay these days, but when I do I am ready to snipe in the last minute with my highest bid (assuming the item hasn't already gone to silly money heights)

    I see your theory but I figure, they too were willing to pay that anyway so sI'm around result. Ano in turn I've bumped their prices too! In honesty, id forget about the item if I attempted last minutes so would save on many occasions

    Many strategies to get the elusive planes!

    On a more interesting note. Super7 ReAction Action Figures is making a Peanuts Line. They are doing a flying Ace Snoopy.

    Well, not much of anything currently on Ebay. I guess everyone cleaned their closets out and are laughing to the bank with our money!

    I picked up a Barker Camel and French Sopwith Strutter for a good price. I missed a Macchi I got an email deal for. When I answered it was already gone...in 2 minutes.

    Yes they are, but if I can get them including shipping for less than the asking price what can I do?

    Every set of 12 planes (=series) sold for over 100 €, some over 200 €. His two Staaken went for 50-60 € each. I wouldn't call those prices expensive nor cheap either. Even Shapeway Staakens are sold for 40$ upwards.

    Good things come to those who wait...

    I got my Hohn Pfalz last week for “just” $43 after watching the last one go for $76 and the one before that for $137. Now “just” 2 more planes to find!

    You’ll get there!

    This weekend there were some single auctions for complete series on the German eBay side. The one with the Fokkers D.VII was sold for only 150 €. The one with Triplanes and Siemens was sold for barely above 200 €! Each with 12 planes - that's a steal.

    As I earlier said, not cheap, but not expensive either. The Staakens themselves (I'm not quite sure anymore if he had 2 or 4 available) went for 55-65€ without shipping. (plus 5 € for shipping in Germany)

    I'm now triggerhappy in getting the blue Staaken but including shipping it would cost around 100€, damn. I've already moved other planes around so I have space in my case display^^

    There several Staaken, Handley Page, and other large bombers listed right now. I would suggest taking a look. All the listings have a .99 cent starting bid.

    There are also 4 or 5 blue Staakens for sale on Amazon (US). They range from $61.20 USD to $64, including shipping. Not sure that particularly helps you Felix, but just a reminder that there are some cheap planes on Amazon every now and then. I once found a Schaefer D.VII for $45, free shipping... couldn't hit Buy It Now fast enough.

    That was actually a pretty good hint! I search on Amazon everytime, but never thought about using another than the german version. I bought a Staaken for 50€ from Rarewaves now, maybe there are 20% taxes on top but that would be a lot cheaper if I bought it on ebay for 100€ either way so I don't care...
    Thanks Jeff!!

    You are right. I once bought 4 Gladiators for 10€ incl. Shipping so yeah, search where you can...

    Got my Staaken off eBay last year for $35 (buy it now) - that’s the most I’ve paid for any WoG plane. As long as it remains in print, deals can usually be found if you are patient.
