I've had nothing new this year, I can't take it much longer!
I'm down to my variations so they are generally harder to get but give me a break!!!! :x

a question about foreign ebay sites!!!!
when I search worldwide rather then just Australia (for me!) aren't I getting everyone in the world that is willing to post to Australia? :?

When I search ebay UK, I see models from the UK and models from outside the UK. When I search foreign ebay sites, I see models appearing on foreign sites with models from the UK that were not featured on UK ebay!

I guess some sellers choose not to advertise their models in their Home ebay sites thinking they can obtain a better price from foreign buyers.

Good news!
Did you find it close to home or from an international search?
Happy hunting!

Congrats on a new find!! Proof positive to never give up on the searching -- you just never know when something will show up.
I can understand your situation as my "wishlist" for regular wheels variations is also fairly short and mostly pretty hard to find models -- but the search continues..............!
Much of the fun around the hobby revolves around "the search" including often meeting new people who also love this hobby.
