You could fly it at B6-4 field with those.

Don't get excited and bid without noting the $40.22 shipping charge. I can handle $40, but $40.22 is insane!

Not to worry. It's only $32.31 as I view it. Must be a podunk delivery charge for you out in the hootin' hollar.

It seems Ebay's shipping calculator is just plain nuts sometimes. I won something a week or so ago that was quoting something like $34 to ship from FL to GA. It was an early 80s Centuri starter set shrink wrapped, one I did not have, but it was not a huge box by any stretch. Even the seller mentioned that he might have to 'adjust' (i.e., 'correct') the final shipping charges, since ebay was not doing such a good job at it. After I won it I sent him (them) a note about the shipping charges and after their final check with the PO, they were able to take $10 off that.

In the past year or so Ebay's 'listed' shipping charges (which, sadly, many sellers tend to go by) has gone up quite a bit just in my seat-of-the-pants reckoning. I don't sell on eBay, so I don't know all the ends and outs from that side of things, but the shipping charges are crazy sometimes. Other sellers though are still very reasonable in the shipping charges.

I actually did that once. I bought a 12-pack of Wiedemann hand grenade bottles off of some lady for $5. We met at a local McDonalds and made the handoff while I was on my way home and she was on her way to work one morning. Basically I paid for her breakfast.

Lister says 34 rockets not sure what that means. I count 24 diamond packs all but 3 sealed and about 15 or so loose engines. If so the lot is easily worth $100 shipped IMO.

Quoted me $23 something for shipping. Has a couple paks of A3-6T also. Might have to snag it.
Some -S shorties too.
