Check them out. When you're thinking of buying a model horse from someone you don't know, you can always check their reputation on the Model Horse Hobby References group (MHHR) on Yahoo. Joining the group is free, and once you do so you can search the message board for good service ("Green Light") and bad service ("Red Light") reports from other collectors.
