Right, i got my leman russ battletank off of ebay for about £15 and oh my god was it a mistake, the sponsons are stuck into a weird position, the battle cannon was badly converted, he took a backpiece from the new demo kits turret and stuck it ontop of the battletanks but worst of all is that he DIDN'T put in a hull weapon, the actual mount is there its just there is no weapon or little cylinder spinny thingy, just asking is it worth getting the leman russ sprue kit for this sort of job? thanks
Id send it back and ask for a refund.
IF he will give a refund that may be an alright option but he doesn't have to. You buy in an auction "as is". The only real grounds for a refund you'd have is if the pictures were deceptive. I've been semi-burned by this kind of thing. I take consolation that it was pretty cheap. I got a Russ and Chimera for about £20 so the fact they were trashed was kinda made up for by the low cost.
To give an idea - the sponsons were just plain missing, the whole thing was covered in what I'm guessing was house paint. There were some "extras" like an ammo box glued just arbitrarily onto the side. The exhausts were on but /upside down/(!) and the main turret pins were snapped so it didn't fix into the mountings. I nursed it back to health with a lot of scrubbing, scraping, greenstuff and extras from my chimera and sentinel kits.
The front weapon was busted on this thing, I used some sprue to clog up the gap and greenstuffed a magnet on. I took the turret flamer from one of my Chimeras and greenstuffed the hole on the side. Then I just magnetised that too along with a HeavyB and a sentinel lascannon and so now I have all 3 options.
I wouldn't be too down on it - you probably should have enough parts to make good on the damage. If not buy another Chimera and use the turret flamer like I did. Greenstuff can be bought really cheaply off ebay (kneadatite)

If not, well, next time pay a bit closer attention on what you were bidding.
Assuming we're not talking actual fraud here...
I'd just buy some hull weapon bitz off of eBay and finish the model. I bought 3 hull weapon kits from there so that I could convert some of my old Russes to use the new interchangeable slot-weapons.
