I've wanted one too, to go with my D21. Those colors are the best ones Wilesco has ever put together.

Peter has one left. Ebay would not let me finish payment, I emailed Peter and he sent me an invoice. Shipping to me came to 38.00 EUR and only 13 days to my door

I just sent him a request for an invoice. What's up with this, his add says that he ships to U.S.A.,
but the buy it now redirects to a window that says seller can't ship to Michigan???
What kind of are they handing us?

I had it happen one time buying from Canada too. It still shows ďlast oneĒ on ebay, so I donít know if you have to click the BIN button and click ďcommit to buyĒ to reserve it before it goes to someone elseÖ

Nice selfstarting model for the young steam enthusiast
and beautiful nice color scheme. The only thing I do not
like with newer Wilesco's are the plastic handles on
steam whistle/tap. I had 2 that broke...
Peters-Drehscheibe is a good seller from the Black forest
Germany - price Euros 199.00 - highly recommendable

I avoided all the sites selling it when it was released and told myself I didnít need it, but I guess I am a weak one 😂

Oh I did hit BIN and when I went to pay, that is when the trouble started. I sent him a message and today
it shows up in my cart to pay but when I do, get the same message. So I took a picture of it and sent him
a new message requesting an invoice. We'll see what happens.
