ANOTHER LARGE UNIT OF 1/35 VEHICLES

Post by Mad Sam » Sun Mar 09, 2014 2:47 pm

Got these yesterday, nearly 100 - mainly German softskins, including nine Opel Blitz and Maultiers.
Also a couple of old 1/30 Bandai - Hummel, Lang and Nashorn (missing gun)
several 1/32 tanks.

Quite a few to go through the paint shops...

Picked them off at an auction.. Last six lots and every other person had left - just me to put in a bid....!

Worked out about $3.50 each...and 30% of that was hammer fees and tax...

Kev, you definitely cleaned up. How did you hear about this? Did you just happen to fall upon it? Great find.

I was actually looking out for unbuilt kits and found these listed as the last lots in a model railroad auction 30 miles away.
Once the railroad lots were sold there was a mass exit, leaving just me and the auction staff.

The floating Sherman is very nice. I've never seen one in model before.

:wink: I've often found good Military items(Models,figures,etc) at Model Train shows that every one else walks right by,always worth a look in if there is a Model Train show in your area.

I agree jkinzel. I go every month. I too have picked up some great finds from Britains to FOV to 21st Century to K&C to people's built models they no longer want.

We also have toy and train fairs - agree they can be a good hunting ground - I always pay a bit more to go in on an early bird ticket to beat the masses and get to go through stock as the traders are putting it out.

I went to an antique mall today, and there was a guy selling all kinds of die cast. He had several FOV, 21st armor and built model planes, which were hanging from the ceiling. I passed on the armor and picked up a nicely done 1/32 F117 and a 1/32 Vietnam era Army Cobra helicopter. The Cobra has operating lights if you connect a 9 volt battery.

Wish I lived closer. I would have had you grab me those FOV vehicles.
