Exclamation DGS Military is having a sale!

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned that Dean was having a huge sale with a bunch of Tanks and accessories.

I already picked up a set of gear boxes (attached to a Pantiger, but worth it...)

Yes, a very good sale, I just bought a tank myself. I've been dealing with Dean for years so I can tell you from first-hand experience that he's a decent vendor and can be trusted. If you see anything there that you like, I suggest you go ahead and pick it up, it's a safe place to shop.

Bought my Firefly from Dean and bought other things over the years. Always good to deal with.

I already said this in a different thread but I'm going to say it again here, just in case anyone missed it over there, but I really think it's time we talked to the moderators about the classified section. The way it is now isn't worth a damn. It used to be decent but then they changed it and we lost everything we had before and now we're stuck with what we have now. So how about a sticky? A thread dedicated just to RC tankers selling stuff to each other? We could not only buy and sell stuff from each other, we could show off the stuff that we buy and sell to each other. Opinions?

Sorry for the thread hijack, but I think this one is worth it.

I'm also gonna say one other thing about the sale.
All the lots marked with E# are from one of our club members who has the Big "C". 100% of the funds from those tanks and accessories are going to his wife as he will not see 2022. Dean volunteered to act as the middle man for those items on their behalf.
If you see a tank you like, offer a reasonable amount. (Example, -$25 because it has an old SLU control board, makes sense. Trying to offer $300 for compete 1/16 Tamiya tank that comes with a tamiya apple and a transmitter? Not likely even looked at.)

Thanks guys. (I also agree with Crius about the marketplace/classifieds.)

And you may notice that the fine-looking Sherman E8, item d11, is now gone. That's because it's on its way to me! Even though it's just the lower, this will be my first Tamiya tank. After close to nine years in the hobby. I'm not sure if that's sad or not?

And I will be repainting it to remove the word Fury from the barrel. Hell, I didn't even like the movie that much. For me the best part was the shots of Tiger 131.

And, Jarlath, I'm glad you agree about the classifieds, but I think it's going to take more than just you and me. Do you think it would be a good idea to start a thread as a poll? That way we could get a consensus of how many guys would like to see a classified sticky.

The classifieds section on here sucks!
It would be better to have it in our area

Sigh. I do not know if the sale will be continuing in some form/shape/etc...

Mr. Ed Reimer passed away on October 15th from his battle with Cancer.

Hi Guys,

For those of you who were watching the huge DGS Military Hobby Sale, we have now started moving the CanAm member's estate sale that was part of it over to ebay. We will begin listing 5 or 6 each week until we have everything up there. I guess some people will be more comfortable buying from there than going direct. There will be some serious deals to be had so check it out and follow me on ebay so you see all the new postings.

Any questions at all let me know!

I was watching the first batch with my watchlist and I see that they all sold, mostly for decent prices. I see the metal Panther you have up now has attracted some attention and is already up to a good price. Good luck with all this, Dean, helping out the Widow of a friend can only be good for your karma.
