Had a very busy couple of weeks sold 25 models inc some ixo new releases

All models are also on sale on the forum but not a single one of my sales were on here

Very strange but shows how things have really changed on here

Had no problem selling models to fellow forum members both on here and on other channels but agree times have changed.

I think most collectors on here have a certain theme to their collection and most new releases dont fit that theme. Any older releases they would have bought already. New releases are too expensive to use as base models for the many builders we have on here.

The majority of the forum have the same interest in models they buy so any models outside that will struggle to sell. Some may see this as a limitation of the forum, but I see it as one of its strengths. I could go on facebook and see several different groups for rally models. But theres nowhere else thats the same as here.

Totally agree with your sentiments and long may the forum continue as IMO its primarily a place to discuss new releases and finds and exchange tips etc. Its not a market place as such but has that facility as a nice add on.

Cheers

Well said lads. I've sold a few recently through Facebook. It has a much wider membership and as you say there are certain people which only collect certain things so putting them on FB gets them out there more.
Here is still a great place for sales. Somebody always wants something. I think a lot is just pot luck.

agreed lads..........although i have bought and sold a handful of models on here, i don't look on it as mainly a marketplace, more a forum where like-minded saddo's like me can ask/give advice, show their collections and bang heads on all things rally model related.... i know this is no consolation to the guys on here who are trying to sell runs of models they have produced, but surely if the right models are made, collectors will buy....? or of course i could be talking cr_p!! lol!! Embarassed
just my tuppence-worth, no offence intended to anyone........... I love you

I agree with your sentiments about the Forum, Billy, and have bought models through the forum that are relevant to my theme/s. Until very recently, all my models have been Austin/ Rover/ Triumph, MG/ BL/ ARG/ MGR-related (road, race, rally and rallycross cars) and I have only recently explored other marques (Ford x2, Lancia, Porsche) due to making models of current Ripla Retro Rallycross Challenge cars.

Other models, however unusual/ cheap/ beautifully made they may be, are not going to join my display. I do regularly look on here for stuff for sale and will continue to do so.

Cheers, Steve

I don't even want to start counting what I've spent here, either stuff I bought from members or things I bought elsewhere after finding it on the forum.
