World War One aircraft have interested me since childhood. Consequently, I've acquired a number of kits over the years, and much like wargaming projects, they never get finished. At this point I have neither the eyesight nor the hand coordination to ever complete them so 'tis time to let them go.
I'd like to sell these kits as a single lot for the sum of $75 US, plus actual shipping. That's 17 unbuilt 1/72 WW1 planes and 1 partially built 1/48 plane. Note that the Ilya Muromets and the 3-pack (SE5, SPAD and D-VII) are both collectible and command around $30 each (in the collector's market).
The D.H. 5 is a vacu-formed kit--not advisable for the novice model builder. In fact, most of these can be tricky builds. All models (except the two Academy SPADs--still in shrink wrap) have been opened. I'm fairly certain all parts are there, still on the sprues, but I won't garantee it since I've been hauling these things around for quite a few years and quite a few moves. The decal sheets may or may not still be usable. Time takes its toll on those.
Contact me via the blog if you're interested.
