If anyone on here buys it, make sure you tell them how to properly pack the ride. I have seen too many guys pack the ride on the base with peanuts and the buyer wind up with a broken model.

1) Ship the base in a seperate box
2) Pack the ride with nylon based pillow cotton stuffing
3) Wrap the ride and its stuffing in tissue paper and tape
4) Pack in a large enough box - the more room the better.
5) SURROUND ALL EDGES and open space with packing peanuts.

Looks like a beautiful trooper!

I was lucky that my Loop-O-Plane model was small enough to handle peanuts. Looks like a hot trooper yet I'm not sure if Don builds the platforms that high or their just bent. Looks in great shape. I must say I'm interested. If I buy I will just pickup the model on my way back from Gibs.

The last Cummons piece I bought on eaby, a Swinger, arrived in pieces. Thankfully the seller refunded the money, and I sent the model back. It was literally in pieces because they packed it in the same box with the base.

Every Cummons piece I have purchased off of ebay has had some sort of issue/s. Luckily most were repairable. However you hate to pay a premium for one of the models and them have to repair it when it arrives.

LOL. Very true!!!

My only complaint with that model is the commentator. I have cleaned it twice, and the lights still flicker while the model is running. I am still scratching my head over that one.

Order some more Cummons pieces. LOL.

Probably buy a nice big Coach and head for warmer weather in the winter. Back home for the summers. I will always have plenty of things to do. I don't think I could ever sit still for long. LOL.

Up to $511 with 3 days to go. These people have lost their minds? Why run the price up so early? I don't understand that mentality.
At this rate it will probably go for around $700.

Never had any problems with my MGR. I'm wondering if the contact inside of the ride needs to be bent a little to correct that problem.

There are 2 types of Ebay Bidders with these: Ones who bid early and run the price up, and the Heavyhitters that come in at the end and slam the bid home.
