Question Can you recommend a shop in England that buys diec

I’ve got probably around a few dozen 1:200s, maybe a hundred 1:400s, and some other scales, which are worth a few thousand pounds. I’m looking to sell about three-quarters of them to make space and raise money over the next few months.
I figure it would be easier to pack up one hundred models and take them to one shop, than to post them individually through Ebay.
I’ve seen that Rails in Sheffield buy collections, but I live in Bristol so would prefer somewhere south of the Midlands.
Nearly all of them are less than a year old, still in excellent condition with the original boxes.
Thanks for your advice.

Why not attend one of the several collectors shows. You can look for a buyer or it will require you investing and obtaining several tables. Some of the best shows in the world are in the UK and all are coming up shortly especially the one in Crawley by Gatwick.

Airspotters in Corby are known to buy models. Give Pete a call.

Failing that as mentioned take them to the Gatwick show. Still space available.

You can always try Aviation Retail Direct. They'd take a collection of your hands I'm sure.

I can highly recommend using Airspotter. Hope you can sort something out.
