Default Selling Entire Corgi Aviation Archive collection

As the title says I am selling my entire Corgi Aviation Archive collection.

I started collecting 15 years ago, now my son is 8 and my daughter is 5 and we just came back from displaying at our first lego convention.

We had a blast and want to do more, so to find our families adventures I have come to the decision to sell off my entire Corgi collection.

I probably have most of the hard to find Corgis from world war 2, all of the first release sets, the Battle of Britain range, all of the flying aces range, all of the flying mule ww2 exclusives including Adolf Galland ME262 limited, Raaf mossie, night fighter hurricane. I have most of the Battle of Britain sets, merlins over Malta etc etc etc.

My collection is almost 100% mint in box. Some boxes have shelf wear, 2-3 maybe have some rips on the sides.

I would estimate 5 planes have damage from when they were on display/ antenna, little pieces etx, however since accidents these sets have been in an air controlled storage unit and not on display. Most have been out of the box only once.

I have never sold such a large collection and will probably not part out- unless I part out in themes, I was wondering what sort of advice anyone could give me.

I am going to sell at market value, at a guess, I am a realistic seller. I just moved the sets to my house for insurance reasons and need the space for our large scale 10ft lego displays.

It's been years since I have connected via any forums, I used to be very active in the old model hanger and model hanger 2 forums.

I am hoping to make some collector very very happy.

Hi- I'm probably going to document them all tonight or tomorrow and then work on a market value based off last 3 months of eBay selling data averages.

I think grouping the models into themes is a great idea. Makes it easier to justify to the wife!!!

Posting a spread sheet with prices would be a good start, then people can PM you with offers.

It's a pity you won't part out, I'd be interested in a few but not all from one theme.

Good luck to whoever gets them, instant themed collection

It's a big decision, but I think parting it out may be the best method. But give the themed tactic a go, it would offer some kind of postage saving to a collector.

if you want to make the most money, sell it all on ebay slowly.
if you want to make ok money,sell it on ebay quickly.
if you want to just get rid of it, take it to vectis auctions
if you want to get a lot of tire kickers, post it on this forum ( )

Parting out on a forum like this will make the most money because eBay and Paypal fees will start to add up very quickly.

If you just copy-paste the contents and put that down in this topic that should work I think.

Have you collected any cold war jets as well?

Listed primarily in the AA number order....when I get time I will put plane descriptions. This gives a heads up...I used to know which numbers I was looking for. Price is average ebay sales price plus including shipping for last 6 months. Some are priced lower, some higher depending on volume on ebay.

Oh man...I'd love to take that Flying Mule '190 off your hands, but it's hard at that price.
