I'm not really a purist that way. If he is selling recasts and they're good, then that's all I care about. especially the old models are hard to come by, but add such character. If the only way to get them is via recast, fine by me.
His prices aren't insane like some other traders tend to do when in posession of old models, so that's a big plus to me.
However, I've never bought anything from him, so I can't vouch for the quality.
