Ill try to keep this short and not get to emotional about it.
For the record, this IS NOT a for sale post. I understand the rules. Just need some advice so I am reaching out to a community that I have been following for what feels like forever.
I've been trying to enjoy this hobby for the last 15 - 20 years of my life but always seem to have to put it on pause. My first place was renting a room so as soon as the rest of the house smelled the paint it was game over. Then I upgraded to my own studio but I was working 2 jobs 14 hours a day 7 days a week. No time. Then work had me moving from apartment to apartment, so I could never get set up to really build. Always get half way into a kit.. then have to pack all my stuff.
Now, older I have a garage, in a house. All the space I need. But I have kids, a wife.. and very little time for hobbies. I've been thinking this over for months and I have decided to keep my woodworking hobby, as I hope that in the near future that could lead to a side business or at least a job I enjoy.
So I am deciding on how to sell all of my model car stuff. Tools, kits, spray booth, paint.. you know the whole deal. I mean I could try posting the whole lot on CL, or I could sell each kit individually on Ebay. I would probably make more that way but shipping and time.. its a lot of work. I have maybe 60 - 80 unbuilt kits.. too many decals, resin and plastic accessories to list.
What would you all do? Photo every part and sell it on ebay separately, post the whole lot in one add on CL?
I do wish I could use the forums as an outlet, but rules are rules.
I guess if anything, if any of you all are local to the SF Bay Area, send me a PM you can take a look at what I have and maybe you'd be interested.
I will be keeping a few select kits. Basic tools. When the kid is older maybe he'll be into it. I just cant store it all plus we are moving out of Ca in a few years so the less we take with us, the easier it will be. I already have a garage full of woodworking tools to bring with us!
