My Father passed away last year and in his younger days was an avid modeler. I have about three large cardboard boxes of aircraft kits he bought but never assembled. The newest any of these could be is from 1978, as they predate a move we made when I was a kid. These inculde the 1/48th Monogram B-17,24, and 29 kits, many Williams-brand kits, and many, many 1/72 kits. All kinds of aircraft, preWW2, WW2, jets thru the 100 series. Again nothing newer than 1978. Some of them might have been purchased when he was in Germany in the AF. I believe they are all still buildable, no issues that I can see other than the decals are toast.

If anyone is within driving distance of Waco, TX, please let me know if you want to look at them. I'd prefer to sell all together than eaches.

Thank you,
John

Any way you could post pictures or a list? I might know someone interested here in San Antonio.

What do you think you want for the entire collection? My dad has the same sort of collection that I will end up with as well and I wouldn't mind having more. That way if there are duplicates I wouldn't mind building them as much.
