Selling used paints ((NOT AN AD))
Posted by blaster on Sunday, February 7, 2021 10:24 AM

I've been out of the hobby for a while now and ive got a bunch of tamiya paint just sitting around, some used, some not even opened. Is there even a way to sell this ***? I feel like the internet wouldnt really work since theres no concrete way of showing the buyer how much paint is in each of those bottles. Any ideas?

 I don't think you'll get a taker here. Why? number One, as you said, there's no way to check the contents and number Two, Most folks I know would give it away to another modeler OR, if you have a V.A. Hosp. in the area, give it to the Recrational Therapy Dept.!

For online selling, about the only thing I can think of is to take a toothpick, stick in and bottom it out.  Hold it alongside the jar to show paint level as you take a picture.

I'll agree with TB, the price of new Tamiya on-line, doubt you're going to find many takers, unless you do package deals on the most popular colors, at a deep discount.

Exactly 60 bottles of Tamiya, some bottles will be empty, but the ones that are empty are gonna have replacements. Talking like 5 at most. Most of the colours are German aircraft and armour scheme. I also have 20-ish barely used Vallejo model colour bottles and a Badger 105 airbrush set that I'm trying to get rid of. If you are actually interested and want more details, contact me.

Also if I don't find anyone to sell to, I will donate to my local I.P.M.S club or V.A.
