Default Values of some 1/500 models

Hi all,
I'm thinking of selling off/trading my 1/500 collection as I collect only 1/400 now. I'm not sure it's the best time to sell them due to the current global economic situation, and I also can't yet create a new post in the 'buy/trade' forum. Is there someone who knows the current approx value of the following models (all Herpa)?

BOAC comet 4 (HP515030)
Qantas 738 (Yanji) VH-VXB
Qantas 744 (Wunala) VH-OJB
Pan Am B377 (HP506762)
Iraqi airways IL76 (HP513852)
TWA MD83 (507646)
Impulse Airlines 717-200
Olympic 717-200
Westjet 737-200 (HP505789)
Team Lufthansa Q300 (HP510011)


I've checked for some of these on Ebay, but some have 0 listings whatsoever.
Thanks in advance!
Brad

I wonder if 1/500 scale is still a thing now, with 1/400 and 1/200 taking over the hobby. Good luck with your sales.

Hi,

as Herpa is a german company they may be more present in germany.

I found minimum one item each of what You have listed with the following prices:

30 Euro - BOAC comet 4 (HP515030)
9 Euro - Qantas 738 (Yanji) VH-VXB
30 Euro - Qantas 744 (Wunala) VH-OJB
25 Euro - Pan Am B377 (HP506762)
24 Euro - Iraqi airways IL76 (HP513852) --> one click per hour!
16 Euro - TWA MD83 (507646)
15 Euro - Impulse Airlines 717-200
27 Euro - Olympic 717-200
15 Euro - Westjet 737-200 (HP505789)
13 Euro - Team Lufthansa Q300

Sometimes there was just one offer, for others more, I choosed the first best, but not always highest price.

With best regards,

Jan

... highest price for a current listed 1/500 article on ebay.de is 599 Euro for a sample of an A319 Hamburg International that hasn't gone into production.

Very interesting!

Thanks for that Jan! I checked some completed listings of VH-VXB last night and I was happy to see some go for around 70AUD 'buy it now', considering I paid around $24AUD and no postage around 14 years ago, that's a decent profit in my books.

Shandaken, yes it appears 1/500 is slowly dying sadly, probably due to the lack of manufactures to choose from nowadays and no where near as many as models are released as 1/400 and 1/200.

Really sad indeed... 1:500 was such a nice, almost perfect scale in my opinion. Also the fact that it was much cheaper compared to most 1:400 models made them easier to collect. Too bad less than enough companies make them anymore because of the popularity fading away from the scale. Good thing Herpa still makes them to this year! A380 in 1:500 for only $39? I'll take!
