Hello All - Newbie here.  I have "inherited" a bunch of model cars. One is a Andy Matthews built car, number 6 out of 12. It is a F1 from 1967. What do yall think? It is pretty cool.

Welcome! It looks highly detailed. What scale is it?

Nice model Lee and one that I would love to own. I'd like to know the scale also as I tend these days to collect Formula 1 in 1/43 only.

They are 1:12 and cost fortunes. Nice inheritance!

Thanks guys. When you say fortune, how much is that do you think? I have another car, two things for the rear wing are in box just not attached, do they sell better if I attached them you think?

I have about 30 or so models that I probably need to sell. I will post some pics of those if you guys don't mind giving me some feedback.

We cannot see your media, you have to attach the images to the post by clicking "Add to post" button. Would recommend that you do not repair any broken parts unless you are experienced modeler.

Thanks Chav, even though these parts are not broken it seems they where never attached or maybe not attached well. Either way, my hands are to shacky to glue them back on.

 

Here are a few more pics of available models. I see this site has a auctions page that I need to talk to about selling all these.

Interesting collection ...

Let's number the pictures for 0 (Lotus) to 7 (Ferrari)

I can only guess the scales; the chassis of the mass production models (picture 4) will tell you the manufacturer and the scale.

0. You said built by Andy Matthews, probably 1:12, this one is probably the most valuable and worth thousands, but you need it appraised by someone who is familiar with this market, you can email Marshall Buck at http://www.cmamodels.com

1&7. This is also large-scale model; it really depends on who built it

2. 1/24 Historic replicars, in current condition probably worth less than $100, sell it on eBay

3&6. This seems to be a custom built 1/43 model, again depends on the builder, probably worth $100-200, but it is slightly damaged, would sell on eBay

4. Various mass production 1/18 models, if the GT is made by Exoto will be worth more, the 2nd and the 4th ones are likely CMC Maserati's, the one in the back is likely Replicarz, the Renault is 1/24, not sure who made the Aston Martin ... the 1/18 on this picture are worth probably north of $200 each (except the Aston Martin and the Renault), sell on eBay;

5. These seem to be again 1/12, can't tell you much about them, could be worth more than 1K each, they seem like nice builds, ask Marshall

Everything I am telling you is estimated based on the limited pictures I see. Hopefully that helps.

Dude, you have been a great help! I was totally lost with all of this. I forgot to mention that I also have some like auto cards, like baseball cards but with race cars on them. The person also had some race car postage stamps, 2 from Russia I think. Some of those old 3d type cards you look at from different angles and some mini helmets. He was a fanatic that's for sure

@lee-kuipergmail-com             Inheriting specialized collections can be a delight if you like them, and a pain if you have no interest.  You have received some good information here.  I wish you best luck in your sales. I sell some stuff on eBay, but I've not had much luck recently.  It's worth looking at completed sales there to gain information on some of your models. 

  I have a hunch several of us will be leaving others to a similar situation.
