Default Great FB Marketplace find

Hope everyone is doing well. I was browsing through FB marketplace the other day and found a NWA DC10 1/100 for $30. Thought I was seeing things, but sure enough it was definitely $30 lol I picked it up today as my boyfriend and I were heading to a job. It's a mahogany model, so not the best quality but I never expected to see a large NWA model so cheap, simply because it's NWA. It needs a little work and one engine reglued but otherwise in relatively good condition. It will find a new home on my ceiling once we move. I had also found someone selling a 1/50 UA DC8 for $800, but it was a little out of my price range lmao

That's an AWESOME find for only $30 for a 1/100 scale model. Bonus that it's in your preferred Bowling Shoe livery for NWA! I've been using FB marketplace the past year or so and finding excellent deals (telescope, trampoline, ping pong table, bikes, etc.), but have not come across any 1/100 models as of late. May have to search on models next time. Congrats again for a great find on FB marketplace. Cheers! T7 (all the best with your move!)

Right?? I jumped on that immediately. Someone was selling a 1/100 Delta 757 in widget colours and a 1/100 UA 747 battleship for $50 a piece. Unfortunately they were located in VA which is a bit of a hike from me lol Craigslist is another place I like to look. I was able to get three gemini200 DHL 767s for $25 total through CL and flipped 2 of em for a decent amount

Very great find, and for $30! A nice scale for the DC10. Just goes to show that not all wood models are bad.

Great find! FB or CL are great places but its hard to find stuff on there as it doesnt search an entire area and you would have to target key words specifically to find certain items. Last week I randomly searched pennsylvania and found a DFM eastern DC9 for only $500 out in Long island NY. Unfortunately the ad was on two week already and when i emailed the guy it had already been sold! As for that dc8, $800 would be a steal if the decals werent worn and the wings were detachable. for a 4ft metal model without detachable wings, it is a storage nightmare!
