Charter Issue Of FSM
Posted by Big Jake on Saturday, February 8, 2003 8:49 AM
Hi,

I have a charter issue of Fine Scale Modeler Magazine and was wondering what the going rate would be if I wanted to sell it. I ws thinking of putting it on Ebay. Any thoughts?

Part with a charter issue of FSM--SELL one? I'm shocked that anyone would even contemplate doing this! [:0] Do your children (or other heirs) know you're about to dispose of the most valuable portion of their inheritance? Be careful: they may never forgive you. Wink [;)]

For Shame, I hope your grandmother is'nt up for sale too! LOL
But if you must part with it, make sure it goes to a subscriber of FSM, something of
this value should not be allowed to leave the familyWink [;)]

Gee ... I am surprised that he didn't want to sell a copy of the issue of FSM that came just before the Fall 1982 "Charter Issue"

Yes, I am talking about the very rare "Trial Issue" from the Spring of 1982 ... that WAS the very first issue of FSM ... I just happened to pick one up off the magazine rack at my local super-market ... I very much liked Big Smile [:D] what I saw ... and waited for the "Charter Issue" to come out.

When the "Charter Issue" of FSM came out in the Fall of 1982 I snatched it off that same magazine rack at the Jewel store in Springfield, IL and have been a subscriber ever since. Smile [:)]

I for one wouldn't consider selling any of them ... I often refer back to them ... they are a great modeling tool.

Here is hoping that IF you sell your "Charter Issue" copy of FSM, it is purchased by some deserving scale modeler! Shy [8)]

Big Jake ...

I think we were just giving you some good natured ribbing ...

By all means, if you want to sell your FSM magazines then eBay would be the place to do it ... eBay is a great place to buy and sell hobby magazines.

Good luck,

Oh my feelings are not hurt, I can tell a joke from a serious insult, I just need to raise some money to finish an old truck, and I no longer want my collection. You should see the model I just aprted with! Got a bunch more to go.

Apologies anyway Big Jake. Ya kinda got pounced on at the door!

If you have kits to sell, post a list on the site (with FSM's permission of course)
I don't think you'll have a problem parting them out, and ya know they'll go to good homesWink [;)]
Don't think of it as giving up the hobby, just tell everyone you've decided to move up to "Full Scale"

What kind of truck, fix up or full restore?
