Heading out to an auction tomorrow simply because they have a lot of 200 OLD (I think) models.

Lets pray I can score some of these bad boys.

What do you think .... ? Any good ones that you can see?

Are they selling them in one lot or individually? There are some nice OOP kits there that would be nice to have, some are harder to find than others, others are more common.

Be careful to not get caught up in the bidding frenzy and over pay for some plastic. If you have a list of what is being auctioned, I would recommend doing some research before you lay out cold hard cash.

Best of luck and be sure to tell us what you got!

They will more than likely sell them individually or in small groups of 2-5. That way makes more money. Since they have such a large amount of them though they could do more. Make sure you look through the kits well you don't want to be bidding on something rare and high dollar just to find out it has a half built 57 Chevy sitting in the box.

Honestly from what I have seen at auctions if you are willing to pay closer to retail/aftermarket price you will probably win just about everything you want. Most of the buyers will be resellers/prospectors who are trying to buy cheap. You should be able to knock them out quick.

On the otherhand sometimes you get lucky and get a two for one. I bought a bagged P-80 Shooting star jet fighter off ebay last year, when it arrived it was actually 6 complete kits, 2 T-33 (P-80 trainer), 3 P-80s and a P-94 Starfire (P-80 nightfighter) :lol: .

I'd jump all over that MPC Super Dualie. I built it when I was a kid and loved it. Cant find that one anywhere.

Lots of old models. Some were open and he started them but never finished.

Some were nothing more than part boxes.

LUCKILY.... the good ones were in tact and sealed.

WHEW
