Yes, if you want to generate any interest at all in the kits, you need to post clear photos of the back and front of each kit.

Also, explain whether the kits have been opened before, and give condition of the bodytubes in each (whether they are still round, have they been crushed or creased, etc.), and provide any other notable descriptors (wow! Super-mint condition....or....dusty, been in a closet for 40 years, etc.).

That would help greatly.

Hey Earl, Thank you for your advice. I have front and back photos and had intended to use them but had trouble uploading them. In hindsight, perhaps I should have waited on the posting. I merely wanted to start communications with persons who might be interested in the kits.

I have no problems asking for offers as I have no idea of their current value. Of course, this is not an auction but isn't that basically what I and millions of others do everyday on EBAY? Make an offer? Through communications a buyer and seller should hopefully be able to reach a consensus on price. If someone choses not to "mess with that crap". So be it. Everyone has an opinion. Not all of them NEED to be expressed ghrocketman. Chill.

The kits have been stored in boxes or Rubbermaid containers for decades. As previously stated they are unopened and in good condition. Which means not super-mint but showing some signs associated with (give or take) 40 years of age. No tubes are crushed and are reasonably round.

Anyone interested will be sent whatever photos they need to make a decision.
