Rogue or Friend?

Post by Adrianf » 01 Feb 2018, 23:10

Hi, just getting back into things and trying to collect one player of each classic Hw reference from 1 to 328.

As a start, began looking on feebay and come across a seller called vintagesubbuteosparesshop70s who seems to have a very large number of spares for sale, many of which are quite rare. I am a bit out of practice but looking across them, some seem to be genuine and others look wrong, particularly some of the rare greens or reds but others just look too fresh and there seem to be lots of misfiring bases.

Just wondered what people thought, friend or rogue? Apologies if it's anyone on here

He's been repainting and rebasing for years.
The astonishing thing is he has never improved his performance over the years: tat, that all these years later, still looks like tat.

Thanks all, some of his stuff looks ok but, the rarer the ref the more dodgy things look so very much a buyer beware situation I think
