I’m looking to sell this now-discontinued Ertl 1/16 scale model, which is in perfect condition bar a small paint scrape at base of backhoe boom which is not visible when in folded position (was like this from new). This is a large and heavy model with many metal parts, so I would rather model was collected in person instead of posting (live in Ilford, Essex). I no longer have the box.

This is now a rare and very collectible model, but I’m not looking for a silly high price and would like it to find a new home with a plant enthusiast who will enjoy it for years to come. If anyone is interested, please either ring me on 07711267709, or email to Paulwright18@btinternet.com to discuss and make offer.

That is a nice model, a bit on the large side at 1:16 scale, it would sit well with the Joal JCB 3cx contractor that they produced in the large scale a few years back, You should have kept the box though! I have always got a few models here mainly 1:35, 1:50 & 1:40 mainly excavators, Backhoe loaders and tower cranes, I will post a few pics later.

i suppose this forsale post might work better with a price?
was exactly my thoughts Ross (y) .... no price gets your ad kicked off most FB groups :rolleyes:

Difficult to suggest a price when you don’t know what something is worth. I’m only looking for a modest sum to move it on, but if this is inappropriate I’ll understand if you wish to delete my posts.
The point is, and its the same one i make everyday when people offer kit to us. You say how much do you want, they said they dont know. So you offer a price. They then say thats not enough. So you ask again how much was they hoping for, often they will say more.

This sort of game is actually bloody annoying, I always always like to know what somebody is after, I might have a rough price in my head but it helps to know, that way we can try and work towards the price rather than sit guessing. I can assure you nobody in our game nobody undervalues anything.

I am sure if I said i would give you £10, you would tell me thats not enough. Thats the sort of thing i mean

how about putting a name/figure to the ''Modest sum'' and either, someone'll tear your arm off [if you're lucky], or ... try to negotiate what they consider to be a ''modest sum'' .... two chances ;) ... or there is a third ..... no one takes any further interest, which'd indicate it's either way too immodest or, no one wants it :unsure: ...... which is highly unlikely ... if the price is right :rolleyes::)

The tower crane stands about 3ft tall you can adjust the height by unscrewing the mast sections but I only got it out to take pictures, Zoomlion is a Chinese manufacturer they have'nt made it over to the UK yet I have several tower crane models but they take up space and gather dust if you don't have a cabinet for them.
