Helping selling a collection 1:500

Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:04 pm

Hi guys,

Thought I'd ask for some suggestions and advice here.
Had an old friend who recently past away who also collected models in scale 1:500.
His family have asked if I might know where a good place to sell the collection might be and for what price.
They, unfortunately, don't have a list of all the models (about 700 models as well as buildings and GSE) but have attached two pictures they sent me.

Do you guys have any idea of where it might be well to turn with this? Maybe someone would have a good guideline price wise?

They would be happiest if it could be sold as a lot, as they don't want to sit around with it for too long or put to much work into it them selfs.

Thankful for any help or suggestions I can get here.

I would recommend sell them on Ebay, one by one or the entire lot.

If you can send me a message in private with your collection, I will have a look if I am short of some of those models you want to sell.
Btw, where you writing from? (Nation)
