Description
 
Have you ever wondered how much a model in your collection is really worth? Or, would you like to know how much you can anticipate spending on a rare kit you need? Now a price guide from Bill Coulter, a noted author of at least 5 books on modeling and Bob Shelton, an avid collector and modeler of over 35 years, have combined forces to produce this latest seventh edition unbelievable reference book in the same spirit and format as the beloved 'Fantasies in Plastic' that was the Bible of kit values until Coulter and Shelton . Thousands of man hours have gone into this most comprehensive 250 + page book.

In the author's words, "the new seventh edition features considerable updates including new tooling, numerous reissued products, and market based adjustments reflecting current pricing trends. Bob and I actually do use the Directory ourselves, but not for what you might think of when you hear the words Price Guide. No...speaking for myself, the literally priceless feature of this book is knowing who made an item, when it was first released and how many times it has been reissued? These are things investigators would call hard facts. No matter how much the price of an item might fluctuate over time, the paper trail as stated above is unchanging."

Organized by manufacturer, you can quickly look up a kit of interest, or even better, identify which kit you may need. Many have used 'The Directory' to value their personal collections for insurance purposes and estate settlements. Unlike other references, this one is not based on the author's prejudices and wishes, but on the average trading range of the actual models in the current marketplace. Please understand this includes only cars & trucks in 1/25 and 1/24 scale by US manufacturers. In addition, it has Specialty and Show Cars, Foreign Cars, Big Rig Trucks, NASCAR, Dragsters, Indy, Construction, and Civilian Type Boats. We have scanned a sample page, so you can get a feel for the wealth of information included.

If your interests are broader than just 1:24th and 1:25th scale, The Directory Volume II is certainly your ticket. Whether we are talking 1:43 or 1:8, you are likely to find it there. Similarly, if you also collect dealer promotional models, commonly called promos, then you will certainly want to consider securing your own copy of Coulter and Shelton's Plastic Promotional Cars and Truck Price Guide. We try to keep all volumes in stock, but occasionally run out and have to wait for a new printing.
