Model Kit Collections
people are looking to sell models, usually a collection, all at
one time. This can happen for several reasons. A death in the
family (by a person who collected models), or maybe a model builder
has switched hobbys and has a new interest in their life. With
the average age of a moder usually beyond 40+, it's no surprise
some folks may want to thin out the herd from hundreds, maybe
thousands of model kits they've accumulated over a lifetime.
don't buy collections myself (mainly because I don't have the
funds), but there are people who do, for themselves, or as a business
to resell the items to other hobby builders, who will give the
model kits a new home, and a place on a model bench.
course, you can sell models yourself on eBay, Amazon, or Craigslist,
but if you want to try and sell an entire collection, it might
be easier to do all at one time.
are some places that do buy collections below. At least, ones
I know of.
contact them directly.
recommend you have an accurate list of the kits, with kit numbers
(which are usually on the boxes). A photo or two might help also
to show the condition of the models and boxes.
