Not to sound like a jerk, but $100 for these? Are you serious? $75 for the RAH Scrambler? I realize they are built and detailed, but wow, that's a strong asking price. Good luck, you'll need it.

A bit much for some IHC models! [:0] Why get that RAH Ring of Fire?, when you could save up a little more & get T & J's Super Loops that runs and has lights!![:0] But i will say that RAH Ring looks great, really took the time on it & got it looking superb for a RAH ride. The Gravitron looks good too, but it's far from a Cummons!

Exactly. I will say the Zipper looks fantastic, I could see that going for $50 or a bit more fairly easily. But the rest, Joe you need to get him to change his prices.

IHC Thunderbolt for $100.00. You could scratch build one for less than that. Probably could make it operate properly too.

The models don't look exceptional. If they were painted up nice but the IHC ones don't look like they even have been painted.

It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Well, some folks are happy with static, non-motorized models, like myself. Some of us are just happy to have a nice looking model carnival ride, even if it is static, and motorized (and lit like TJ's) can be out of a lot of folks' prices ranges. But a nice looking, built, static model for anywhere from $30-$50 or so? Sure, lot's of folks would go for that. By the way, the Ring being auctioned has no stairs on it Ben, looks like they broke off. These models have been sitting for a long time, lot's of dust on them when you enlarge the photos.

Anyways, I hope you get through to him Joe, otherwise you're wasting your time. If that Zipper was cheaper, I would consider bidding, but not starting at $100.

I noticed a fair amount of dust on some of those pics too Chris.

TBH, I've seen these sort of kits, sometimes end up almost at 100 dollars, too much for me, but just saying to expect someone to start the ball rolling at 100 is a shame.

RAH kits in particular seem to go for pretty high prices IMHO. Unfortunatley the prices seem to have left a bad taste in many of our mouths.

That Zipper IS great looking though. If anything gets that money, it will be that.
