Good luck on the sales man. I need to dig all my unbuilt kits out this weekend, and try and sell the ones I'll never build.

Send me those pics! I can give you a good idea of what they are worth. I'm a member of several facebook pages where people buy/sell kits. If any of it is older or OOP, then they should be pretty easy to sell.

I've got a lot of odd ball stuff I bought off ebay. Some more than 10 years ago.

I've been working on this while I wait for some tape to show up for the cobra.

Revell 69 GT500. It was painted mineral gray metallic about 10 years ago. I polished the body and added bare metal foil to the trim. It will be box stock. Once I'm done I will probably toss it on ebay.

A couple of updates.

Tape is laid for the white stripes on the cobra:



Also a little bit of progress on the GT500. Most of the body chrome is installed. The engine is almost conplete. Paited ford engine blue and weathered a bit with a black wash.

I got the white for the stripes laid today. This is my first time doing hand painted double stripes like this. I've painted single wide stripes in the past. I think it turned out pretty good.

From here, I will let the stripes cure for a few days, clear with Advantage 545 automotive clear, and then begin wet sanding to elimitate the "height" of the stripes.

This is my replica of 01yz2nv's Factory Five cobra.

It was cool to meet you, thanks for helping me with my hoarding problem. My wife enjoyed talking to your wife. Good luck with the sales.

HAHA ya that's how I ended up with as many as I had. It's fun seeing the cars go up in the sale groups. Odd feeling is going, "Oh I want that one, and then realizing it was mine. lol

I've not been building much buying and selling kits mostly. Thanks matt, it has turned into a disease. I spend hours on ebay and forums trying to buy in bulk!

I stopped long enough to finish up the front bumper for my LX conversion. The front and rear bumpers have been cleared, they need polished a bit and then clayed up to pour the silicone molds for casting. Hopefully I can pour the first half of the mold this weekend.

She doesn't mind too much. It stays in the hobby room and it pays for model stuff.

I finally went through, kit by kit, and thinned out some more from my keep pile. Everything not marked I kept. I also kept one of the peterbilts, the fox vert, and maybe one or two more. I'm doen to 5 or 6 left to sell off, I think. I've bought a few parts boxes and kit lots on ebay since buying yours. As of right now, I've broke even at best on those.

If anyone is close to Grapevine and wants to see some of these in person I will be at scalefest on Saturday with the Denny Hamlin car, the riviera, Camaro, and this little gem. I need to repaint the interior, hoping I can get it done by Saturday, just need to decide on a color

I always seem to do this. Last minute thrashing for the show tomorrow. The T-bird is almost done. Body is polished, interior painted an off white. I'm going to swap seats to something shorter and without a headrest. Put the stock front bumper back on it, mount the tail lights, and call it done.
