    Apparently this eBay user is recasting parts from the CC X-Wing available from Salzo Models. Mike has confirmed that he sold a model to this guy and that they are his pieces. Mike asked me to post this up for him.

    Also he has a Vader up for sale as welll. I do not know if it is recast as I know ZERO about them but maybe some of you Vader experts can tell

    Does anyone know who this guy is and if he is a member here?

    ...as far as the Vader helmet....the facemask looks like a Rubies Supreme recast.....4 nose-ridge slots.....and is that a crack through the center of it?

    Looks as if the Seller has already shut down the X-Wing auction. :)

    Could it be he just doesn't want those pieces anymore? Is the flashing the tell on the Xwing that makes it a recast? Just curious.

    I considered that and before I jumped the gun I asked him if he had more than that one set available for sale.

    His Response:
    "I will have more to sell in the future if interested. The price pure set is $45.00, Right now I am working on putting togeather the rest of the parts needed to complete the entire model. Feel free to contact me any time"

    **Edit** The telling factor that the piece has been recast is that the ones this person is selling are fiberglass. Mike confirmed visually they are his pieces and I am familiar enough with the model to know it on sight as well. The originals have only been cast in Resin by the two people who have sold them.
