For Sale: 1/48 scale "Instant Collection" **SOLD**
« on: February 19, 2019, 01:49:59 pm »
**SOLD**  Thank you for looking.

I have ran myself out of room, have decided to abandon "larger" scales, and to that end I've gathered up my 1/48 kits to move them on. I'm selling them all together as a lot. I just don't have the time or inclination to do them all separately.. I don't have any help with anything... no wife, no kids, no parents that help me with day to day things so I simply can't manage to dedicate the time, repeated trips to the post office, etc etc that it would take to parse everything out. Not only that, the mere thought gives me anxiety!  ;D  This is why I haven't started selling on eBay yet... the whole "shipping things" is just so much work. I don't have a printer, either, or scales, or any of that, so I'd have to box things up, carry it down to the post office to weigh it and get a quote, then carry it back home, list it, then go BACK to the post office again later if and when someone buys it...  it's just too much.  :-\     I'm pretty crippled, too, and at times can barely walk  (although my back has gotten a LOT better in recent months!!  :thumbsup: ) so the last thing I need to be doing is making multiple repeated trips back and forth to the post office all the time, so please understand that I'm not trying to be stubborn, I'm just trying to get this done, period. I know I'd make more money doing them separately but oh well!

With that out of the way...   I have 17 of them. Each are complete, 6-7 are sealed. Most boxes in good condition, a couple are bit ratty.

Monogram F-117 Nighthawk. (this one comes with PE stuff)
Revell F-104G Starfighter "Tiger Meet"
HAWK Westland Lysander
Falcon Vac Canopies Set No. 52, missing the canopy for the U-2 Spyplane (because I used it  :wacko:  )  One or two of these could even go on some of these kits. (F-15, etc)
Arii BF-109G
Revell P-61 Black Widow  x2
Hobbycraft Spitfire Mk. XIV
Hobbycraft MS 410
Hobbycraft Hispano HA-1112MIL "Buchon"
Hobbycraft BF109G-10 "Axis Allies"
Hobbycraft BF109G-3/4 "Russian Front"
Revell Chuck Yeager F-15
Monogram P-40B
Monogram P-40B (different boxing)
Lindberg Vought F7U-1 Cutlass
Lindberg Stearman PT-17

Nothing really fancy, but some of it is pretty neat! It's also a decent "spread" of things....  Biplanes on up to stealth jets, a few things from almost all "eras."
















Thanks for lookin'!! If any of y'all are interested,  I guess just holler at me in the PM and shoot me an offer! I don't know what shipping will be but I'll work on that after finding a box. I'd like to have it all in one box to make it cheap as possible.

Most excellent lead, thank you!! I'll email them my list and see where it goes. I've never tried to sell kits before... new territory for me.  :o   Never really thought I would, either.. normally when I buy something, it stays with me for life.

Will do. If the weather doesn't kick the crap out of me tomorrow (supposed to reach single digits , WELL below freezing, not even sure my truck will want to work) I'll run it down to the post office and see what the score is. It's all boxed up, I just need to finish taping the top and drive the mile to the post office.   

Thanks a bunch! Helping me out of a bind in more ways that one.  :mellow:
