    This huge toy model of the M5 Stuart tank brought a $154.00 sale!

    We love toys at Auction Bay.  Toys can be really big sellers, partly because there’s always someone looking for that cool toy they always wanted from their childhood, or that one piece to complete their collection, or Birthday & Christmas presents for their children!  And whatever toy you’re looking for, the place to find it is on eBay!

    This Tank is one of the coolest toys we’ve encountered!  We’ve seen a number of great models and even some highly detailed replicas, but you’ve got to admit… nothing screams “cool toy” like a huge toy tank over 2 feet long!  This 1:6 scale model replicates the M5 Stuart Light Tank used by American and British armed forces in World War Two.  Made by 21st Century Toys roughly 10 years ago, this piece has maintained an impressive value on the collector’s market, and is popular among radio-control toy enthusiasts as well!  After all, racing fast RC cars can be fun, but invading scale cities sounds pretty fun, too!  In any case, this tank brought enough bids to score a $154.00 sale, in spite of the fact that it was a costly item to ship!

    Whether you have great toys like this one, or other WWII collectibles, we at Auction Bay will be happy to help you sell them!  We make sure your items have the best chance of a top dollar sale!

    This Model Locomotive by Tower55 sold for over $400!

    This Model Locomotive by Tower55 sold for $275.70!

    At Auction Bay, one of the most common items we see brought in for consignment are model trains.  Sometimes they are classic Lionel trains, which have great chance of sale.  Other vintage brands like Marx and some of the older Walthers kits can sell well, too.   Rivarossi is another great name which can bring impressive prices.  But some of the biggest sellers are contemporary models, especially the high-quality trains made by Athearn and its competitors!

    We recently sold this model locomotive made by Tower 55, which pulled in the bids and sold for $275.70!  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to train models.  Some of the best-sellers are weathered trains, which have been customized with airbrushing and other paint methods, to look more realistic.  The only ones which don’t seem to have luck are the ones from the late 70’s and 80’s from TYCO or Mantua (which had lower production quality).  If you have some rolling stock gathering dust or some reference books on trains and railroads, or even some old toy trains in a box from years back, bring them in to Auction Bay, and we’ll help you sell them on eBay!
