IPMS(UK) SMW 2018 - Swapshop
« on: October 24, 2018, 02:37:35 pm »
As all are aware under table sales are banned for Branch & SIGs that are not traders for a number of good reasons. Stash sales are all handled by the Kitswap, where the IPMS assigned a separate designated area for members to sell their models (& accessories) with the IPMS doing the administration whilst you go enjoy the show and collect the unsold items and their takings at the end of the weekend (less a % for the IPMS for doing it).

Best post this up again for this year as Weaver has already done his pre-sales post  :thumbsup: and people may be looking for something specific

We have also noticed over the years that when we get chatting later on and discuss what people are after, we used to discover that some were after older Out of Production kits for a project and can not find what they were after or the price is in the collectors range way to much for a builders project. Now as it happens probably 8 out of 10 times somebody will chime in that they may have a surplus kit of that in their stash and that they should have asked before the show, so here's you opportunity !!!!

Please put any requests for specific models that you are looking for at SMW, in this thread, as members who are also going or know someone that is can then arrange a deal via the PM system (but please say if a deal has been reached and the request fulfilled !). It does work and it does save on disappointment.

Also if nobody has one to spare in their stash, their are some in the group who are expert searchers at the show, and can often ferret out a model on stands that you think that you have scoured.

Generally most modellers tend to go to pick up the latest kits or clearance items whilst collectors look for specific boxings, however What-if and Project Cancelled modellers may have different requirements and look for older kits due to subject, hack-up ability and shape for use in creating a completely different model. So we can have quite a varied wants list.

Go on, I'll start this one off as well then....

I'm looking for the old Matchbox/Revell 1/76th scale 17-pounder AT gun + Morris C.8 + Jeep set. Thought it'd be easy to find at a show but it's actually been surprisingly hard.

Drop me a PM if you want to offload one.

I don't think I'm after anything this year.  I'm at saturation point with pretty much everything I'd like to build, even my 'Holy Grails' I have two or three of.  Mind, I wouldn't say no to either a Contrail Avro Tudor or Vickers Warwick.

Ooh, a Magna Vickers Valetta is something I'd like.  Or a Maquette Viking at a reasonable price.

I've noticed all the Matchbox 1/76 military kits have got hard to find and fetch silly money.  Shame, as they take me back...

There was somebody selling three of them at a show earlier this year. I got one and then, late in the day, had another idea that meant I needed another one. Wernt back and the other two had gone.... :banghead:

There are a heap of Chinese knock offs of the M19 Tank Transporter on Aussie Evil-Bay ATM.
If they are as bad as the knock off aircraft then I dread to think what they are like.

One I am WAS looking for is the Olimp/Pro Resin 1/72 Supermarine Seagull ASR1, their last flying boat intended to replace the Sea Otter but displaced by the Helicopter.

I know I could get the Whirlybird (ex-maintrack) vacform, but would prefer the resin kit.


**** Found one and ordered it  whilst looking for a pic for chris   :banghead: ****
