Rebelalpha on Ebay
« on: April 11, 2020, 01:06:19 am »
Not sure if any of you are familiar with this seller...I've bought a lot of decals from them over the past few years and always a very positive experience.  Looking tonight at their entire list of available items and I'm struck by the huge number of What If kits they have.  A lot of Anigrand and several other manufacturers with a lot of Luft 46 type stuff, US Cold War era prototypes and abandoned projects and a smattering of UK projects (HS P1127 "High Speed Helicopter" from Unicraft and Anigrand BAES Tempest are two that caught my eye).

Anyway, just in case anyone would like a good browse, search eBay for seller "Rebelalpha". good seller with a lot of Whif stuff listed right now.   
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

That's Scott Zuieback (an interesting name - I assume that he has German ancestors, since the family name is apparently an anglified version of "Zwieback" (= rusk)).
A nice person and a trustworthy seller. Lots of stuff in his ebay shop (that already found its way across the pond... :rolleyes:), you can get lost there!

According to my evil-bay account i've bought from him.
I don't remember the transaction which means it all went smoothly, wasn't overly expensive and got all the way from there to here with no problems.

Wow, he has a lot of good stuff!  Plenty of things I'd never heard of too.

Lots of good selection and very fair dealing; I've been buying from him for several years, now.  I would rate him very highly.

Scott?

Yeah, been dealing with him for seventeen years now.  120 model kits and 216 "decals, detail sets, paints, books, etc." purchased.  He got into selling stuff on eBay with his dad.  His dad was retired and looking for something to pass the time that also perhaps made a few bucks on the side.  The two of them expanded things.  Scott kept at it after his father died some few years back.  Now selling model and hobby related items is Scott's full time job.  He even has a couple of full time employees helping him!  The guy's got a warehouse in an industrial / office park located in the Van Nuys / Sherman Oaks area just north of Los Angeles.

I first met Scott when I was working a contract in El Segundo (right next to LAX airport) and thought I could just swing by to pick up a purchase directly.  The next time, a couple years later, it was swinging by his warehouse operations.

It was impressive, to say the least. 

The guy is selling things on eBay to make money.  That's his business and his income.

He's an absolute "stand up guy" when it comes to doing business with.  He's got his operation very well honed and his selection of items is indeed breath taking.

So, yeah, I'd recommend him highly as well.
Wherever you go, there you are!
