Why the hesitation? Are you planning to sell it as a damaged model? That's precisely why he wants you to smash it, so you don't take advantage of him and collect money on a model you obtained for free.
I understand that he has been a jerk throughout the whole process and don't think anyone should buy from him. But his request is not unreasonable. You don't want the model so destroy it. Otherwise you should have been asking for a partial refund instead of a full one.
Yes, you have to trust that he will refund once you send the photos. You have eBay on your side if he does not.
I get WHY he wants me to smash model..so i cant resell it. I am reasonable bloke and a partial refund not acceptable for mewith missing parts..(fallen off bits reparable yes) hence why return AT HIS COST and cheapest shipping was offered...AND ACCEPTED originally but only WHEN the replacement arrives...all without opening a case with eBay...He agreed to all this.
He then tried to play the dumb card and drag the process along so after no result and bullxxxt I has no choice but to open a case before too late.
IF he had opened his eyes and looked at the 'new' model he was selling he would have seen the blatent issues...there would ne no issues...however he is a ' male chicken '.
Now he request me to break up the model and send him pics so he THEN can apparently full refund me, he has been so upfront and honest up until now hasn't he...course his word means zero to me..Dont know how eBay would be on my side as its not how their policy rolls..Id rather inform them he refuses to pay the tracked shipping return costs and they refund me in full..he can still give me the low cost $ to return and i would do so....cant promise something nasty may or may not be inside the display case myself the way he treats his return buyers..customer service zero in my book.
Ian I did consider just that idea..VC Holden Commie HDT Brocky one...white resin but not a solid block cold cast one with alot of decal trims
