Selling a rare kit - advice needed please!

Postby 8valve » Tue Sep 10, 2013 4:01 am

Hi folks,

In my stash of kits I've got a Revell 1:24 G60 Corrado unbuilt in its box in perfect condition.

I've no plans to build it in the near future, and it would raise funds for other stuff.

As they are no longer in production (and if the internet is to be believed, won't ever be produced again) they tend to sell for exorbitant three figure prices in a flurry of frantic bidding!

What's the best way to go about selling this?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul.

I would say it's value is in the region of €90 to €100 to a collector so a bidding war on eBay may raise that to €130... far more than I'd pay but there are plenty of VAG nuts who would.

You could keep and hope it becomes even rarer and so more valuable to a collector... but be warned I had a rare sought after kit I was holding on to only for an all new tooling was released and the old kit's value eroded over night.

Good Luck

yeah get rid of it while you can, Modeller is right, Things are getting produced fairly quick these days. Must look at shifting some stuff myself...Ebay is the way to go for that I reckon.
Cheers

I'd agree with Modeler.
get it on e bay. com for global buyers.
have postage cost with insurance for 5 continents. .
Start at £50. with abut it now of £130.
give it a week and it'll be gone in 3-4 days.

this is a very sought after model similar prices to the Esci Ford Transit.
loads of kits.... but no confidence to build...!!
Fear of failure..has me this way..
