I don’t think these were listed incorrectly on eBay or anything like that, as they popped up during one of my standard rocketry item searches. I think it was one of those cases where I saw them *right* after they were first listed and I don’t think anyone else (or very, very few) saw it before I was able to hit the ‘buy’ button.

The lister did state he was the original owner and had purchased them in the late 60s as a kid and had just never gotten around to building them (though I had the impression he had built prior kits); these just were never completed (the Avenger had been started) or opened.

Again, I just plain got lucky.
