Hi All,


Has anyone a link to a site for purchasing finished models and weathered rolling stock?

I know guys sell their handiwork through “famous auction sites”… But are there personal web pages out there where people are selling to the public with pay pal/credit cards?

After great success selling my scratchbuilt structures at last years Gratiot Valley Train Show, I want to see how viable it is to go International, and I’m looking for sites to emulate. In fact, I suppose I could get ideas from any craftsman’s webpage, regardless of if it was trains or not.

Kyle


Ps. if you have any suggestions or know of any pitfalls I should be aware of, I sure could use that info, too.

Thanks in advance.

This link is to a website of a very good friend of mine. Don is an outstanding custom builder in the automotive world. I had the pleasure of being involved in a few projects with Don over the years.

Don actually has 2 websites....the first...ScaleVisions....is for selling built models.

http://www.scalevisions.com/

The second site....ReliableResin...is his resin casting parts company. Both are successful websites in terms of revenue.

http://reliableresin.com/

Maybe some of his website ideas could help you.
