In Topic: Selling your builds?

I have been selling mine for about a decade now. It started with a 1/25 `68 L88 that ended up going for way more than I thought it would. 

 

Over the years, I have had some real nightmares trying to ship. Some of them arrived to the buyer completely obliterated. That is, the kit was closer to "assembled" when I bought it off the shelf at Walmart than after I had shipped the built model. 

 

Lately, I have refined my process, I usually wrap the car in TP, like layer after layer. I then surround with bubble wrap and mount it to a plastic container. I then place the plastic bin in a larger box with packing peanuts.

 

I have shipped a bunch of 1/12 models this way, including the `67 L88 Barrett Jackson car and the red `67 Tri-power I just sold. They both went about 1000 miles without issues. I had one guy out in California, about a 3000 mile trek from me, buy three of my 1/12 builds a few years back. All of them made it to him completely in-tact. I have been using USPS to ship.

 

As far as value, it is worth what someone will pay for it.  B)  :D

Looks great Andre! I know you were worried about the tail lights, but I think they look very convincing! Did you have fun building it? 3rd gen f-bodies are what kept me in the hobby throughout the 80`s.

What is the correct colour for the locks?. I see some in black andsome in silver fomr pictured from the web

 

I`ve had 6 3rd gens so far, and all of them had semi-gloss black locks. You mean the door locks on the outside of the door right?

 

Looking forward to seeing it finished! I always liked these in forrest green.  B)
