Default Big Sale Coming

As some of you on this site know, my wife is currently battling Stage 4 cancer, an emotionally, physically and financially draining process.

To help fund this fight, I am selling off my stored diecast models. Sadly, my own health does not permit me to do this myself, so my 40 year old son has volunteered to do this on eBay and, with the moderator's permission, we will list the eBay model lists, on this site as they are listed on eBay. This is a process that will cover several months as there are over 500 models to sell.

All models are new and in their boxes and include many rare ones highly in demand.

My son is new to diecast models and has started to photograph some of the models that will be offered. For someone new to diecast macro photography, I think he has done an outstanding job. I have attached several examples of his work.

I hope you will look for listings by “Harley_Bigdog” in the future.

That is such a tragic ordeal. Wishing you and your family the best during this hard time. Will definitely place a few bids on your auctions.
On the same note, if DAC is truly a community, like the ones in real life, we should set up some sort of fund raiser to help out a member in need, such as this instance. I hope my post won't be deleted like in the past when I somewhat did the same. I showed my support for an internet store who was going of business due to catastrophic illness to his family. I ordered up quite a few items and posted a thread urging others on here to do the same to support a good cause, only to see it deleted by the moderator(s). Still did not understand why. Whatever the reason(s) was/were, so be it. I hope this time this site will do right by this gentleman in need.
Here's my idea for the fund raiser; How 'bout any member that cares put up a plane or planes for auction(s) and all proceed would go to his benefit. Never sold a plane from my collection yet, but I'll this time. Someone please organize it and I'll gladly actively participate. What do you moderators/site owners say? Do the right thing, show some support will you?!
