Scored Some Kits Yesterday......!

Recommended Posts

An old model builder friend called me up the other night, saying he had "a bunch of models" he needed to get rid of. And he wanted them to go to someone who was a modeling nerd..... Ok, sure I said. It was about 80 models, many started, half built, and a few unbuilt. Many had just the parts to build it stock, the optional parts were stored somewhere else. I'll probably get them later on. Some 1/16: '55 T-Bird, '55 Nomad and HT. An unbuilt JO-HAN Turbine car. The models were packed in five of those blue IKEA bags, seen them? One regular moving box, and two paper bags. How much? About 140 bucks, if I've calculated correctly. A symbolic sum of 1000 Swedish crowns was his asking price. Good deal, eh....?

you'll never get that many new kits for that price, so I'd say you made out great

Yes, that is a great deal Hans.

You will have no problem repairing the half started kits.

Have fun with the building.

Sooo, better now....? Like I said, many were started, half built, some badly customized. But many were neat, creative thinking, and a few were unbuilt. One of the '56 Fords was still factory sealed!

That's a great bunch of kits there. A lot of models "out there" don't really interest me, but just about everything in this haul does! Guess I'm kind of an AMT guy too. Grew up on them. Very good deal you got! Congrats!
