I was wondering if someone could take a look at some embroiled SAS wings for me, code 57707 at £150. The above website.
Many thanks
Andy

His site is littered with repro rubbish.

Some of the SAS badges are awful.

Very occasionally lists a nice piece at a good price but all too often has masses of repros and many over priced items.

If your purchase arrives at all or in one piece is another matter too.

His binned now, but thanks for the warning chaps. I personally believe if a known Forum Member, is selling fakes. Wether here or on another platform, they should be removed from the Forum. But thats just my opinion.

I agree, but there are a few on here I am afraid. Some in the open and at least one with an alias despite being banned.

I see i'm not the only one who had issues with items not arriving from him. Had to get a refund via a paypal dispute last time.
