That was the thought I was putting forward, which based on your experience, it does sound like the Nomad certainly was stable.

Nomad was 44.25" long. Has two 18" tubes for BT-50 and BT-20.

Saros used shorter tubes, was 22.5" long.

Hey George, too bad you donít have about a case of those Nomad kits to sell! Wow, that one you have listed is going for some serious scratch! Hope you do well on all your auctions.

interesting, no sniping going on with these, though there was one bid I saw entered on one item with about three minutes left that must've gotten retracted with seconds left. Two coming up now with lots of bids, maybe something will happen with those.... tick tock... yep, the OT got two bids in the last 30 seconds.... but wait, the last bid again apparently didn't count. Weird. No. it did. eBay's reporting differnt things on different pages
.

Yep, I'm not getting accurate info from eBay, which is one of the reasons why I don't deal with it anymore. The Black Star Voyager had lots of sniping going on, but none of it got reported to me until I looked at Completed Listings and only then could I see the final price.

The auction was odd in some ways. Not as many changes the last few days as I often see. And not much sniping.

Although Patrick Peterson told me he put in a last-monent snipe bid on the Stingray-III for over $300, that did not make it. He said there was 20 seconds left. I personally don't wait that close when i'm doing a late bid, for that very reason.

A bit of underperfomers, like the Sweet Vee, and I was a bit surprised there wasn't more interest in the Silver Comet. I didn't expect a big amount, but $28 seems ow (my own fault for dropping it from $30 to 25, but indeed I was willing to let it go for $25. I try to come up with reasonable minimum bids). Even the Stingray-III was an underperformer, the last ones sold for $250-300 around 20 years ago, and I got over $300 for a Cuda last fall, which is nowhere near as good or rare as a Stingray.

The Nomad, for an opened kit, yeah, that was weird to go for that much. Crazier was the Interceptor E, the best price of anything except the Stingray-III. $161.50. It's not THAT rare. And I thought I got a nice price for one I auctioned last fall for about $80. Definitely big-time sniping going on there by two people, was still $69 till 4 minutes before the auction ended, ]that the other person kept trying to beat with multiple incremental bids until they gave up 2 minutes before the auction ended. Well, those helped make up for the underperformers.

So, overall, I'm happy with the total. And, everyone has paid.
