Hey Ray!! Yeah man, my wife and I are thrift store geeks!! When ever we go, I'm always looking. Heck, my dad, now that he's been retired for a few years, goes to garage sales, a few auctions, and estate sales...I've got him looking for all kinds of things!! I've put him back to work!! LOL!!!!! He's found a few military models for me...still shrink wrapped...dirt cheap, like a couple bucks each!! Thanks my friend!!

Derrick, I've scored several CHEAP damaged Franklin & Danbury mint 1/24 diecasts from eBay over the last year or so.

Just search "damaged Franklin" or "broken Danbury" or the like, save the searches and you'll get DAILY emails with results...

What kind of diecast are you looking for? "scratched & dented diecasts" covers a lot of items.

Thanks for the replies, I'm looking for decent 1/25th & 1/24th scales, prefer the "mints" , Danbury, Franklin. Things like the 37 Stude pickup, 41 Chevy pickup, odd-ball stuff. Scratched, missing some parts, dented etc...cheap. Hopefully with tires??!!

i look for them to. i make them more scratched and dented than they were when i got 'em. i have also got a few danbury and franklin mint models that were listed as damaged and all they needed was a box and a good cleaning and maybe a small part thats an easy fix. those i don't junk. here is a couple that i recently got.
