Evan's Massive Stash Reduction
« on: November 22, 2021, 02:11:13 AM »
Folks,

One of our well known members (Evan - aka elmayerle) has been forced by circumstances to offload 80+% of his stash.  Rather than see it all go to a non-modeller, he would like to see it go to someone in the hobby.  To this end, please see the list below and contact Evan directly.

His comment to me:

Quote
I essentially have until next Saturday to clear out one wall, floor to ceiling of that storage locker.  If arrangements could be made for someone to rent a U-Haul van and pick them to take care of and distirbute to buyers for, say, 10% of gross proceeds, that would be best.  I would recommend at least a 19-foot one as, IIRC, that's the shortest that comes with a loading ramp and that's a big help, as I know from experience.

Evan please step in here if there is anything else you want to say/add.









All hail the God of Frustration!!!

But you can make the Bastard work for it.

Seriously though I'm sorry to hear of Evan's change in circumstance, I only wish I could help by taking some of these off his hands.

I will leave any specifics to Evan though will say that the change of circumstances is not related to his personal health.

Obviously, there is some less-good news in that statement but that Evan is generally healthy is very good news! :D

Are there any members in Texas, preferably the Dallas Ft Worth area that might be able to volunteer to assist Evan with the stash and transfer of it?

There are a number of kits in the list I wouldn't mind buying but;

a) Postage would be a killer, &

b) I'm light on for cash.
