I HATE when people take a plane and part it out on eBay thinking they'll make more money that way....

I agree on that pretty well a complete rare plane. It would be different when half is missing or smashed unfortunately theres nothing can be done its not a crime. Babe Bee

Two ways to look at it.

Either a perfectly good (and somewhat rare) commanche was destroyed to fuel greed.

or...

6 Commanche owners will be able to complete their's and fly or display.

I am a glass half full kind of guy so I'm leaning towards the latter. To be honest if it was complete and sold that way, not many of us could have afforded it. Myself included.

No worries, that model is far from complete. Someone can use the parts for sure.

I would think the horizontal stab & fuel tank are the only things missing.

It looks like this guy really did part out a NIB Curtiss Pusher over the last few weeks, what a dumb ass

I've seen people parting out vintage motorcycles, too, with similar sentiments. Looking to the positive, he provided parts for others needing it, although sometimes it may seem to be a waste. That's the nice thing about ownership of items prior to sale, one is free to do as they wish, right, wrong or indifferent. silent

What do you do about those who set their model aircraft on fire after a crash and video it? Some I've seen looked like they could easily be repaired. tongue
