Stephan, I've lusted after your high-roofs, but no, thanks. :wink: It's a choice between rare and unique. 8)

...has anyone else had problems with the items he's sold? I can't see any posts suggesting so. If not we then have to assume that this is a mix up and he'll come good. It seems unlikely that a recognisable member of the forums would want to cheat someone out of such a small amount of money. Hopeful...

At this stage I don't think it is. But I'd like to give this guy the benefit of the doubt before naming him.

Who is the owner/administrator of this site?

Floris? Willison? Garry C? There are so many. We know who most of them are, if not who they supply.
