I hate ebay!

PAGING Hunter,

Can you page Marc and find out what is happening with the reprints (Traveller/Twilight/2300AD) the next time you have your monthly chat? (
;) :rolleyes: )
Chenna Erik,

Maybe you should try some of the book-sellers that hawk their wares through Amazon.com "new & used" (the Amazon Marketplace). Just search for 2300AD books or whatever via Amazon - sure as they are out of print Amazon have none but the entries are all there. Just click on the "new & used" link to find those that are availble. I've brought heaps of books of these various companies who are mostly US local town and suburban booksellers. They are totally professional and you can get some great bargins...

For example right now you can get:

Comments: 1987 Games Design Workshop 2300 AD Sci-Fi Gaming Module (D9342-MH)

Many of these sellars don't ship overseas until you actually email them and they realise that Amazon.com charges enough to cover basic US Post for overseas shipping (taking a book about 2 weeks to get to Australia). The cost of international shipping is another US$ 9.79 per book. Much better than eBay.

PS I thought your Saschen model was pretty cool - I liked the Tornado green skin as well.
You may also want to check out Abebooks which searches through about 12,000 booksellers. Better perhaps for getting a good deal on literature than gaming books but you might find some bookstore that's marked down a rgamebook and doesn't realize what it has.

Personally I use abebooks to find a book then contact the bookseller.
