Balsa wood planes

I have several planes that have been made with the middle part of the plane and most with wings and tail attached. Most have no other markings. I can find out the model of the plane if it it needed. The planes are from about 10in in length to maybe 25in in length. I have taken over a factory that made them and is now closed. There are several thousand of the planes. I would like some idea as to sell them or perhaps if the wood can be used for something else besides planes. I am in Asia so communications is time difference or about a day plus.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am first time here so I do not know if this is the right way to post or not but I could not find another way to post.

Hey Button and welcome to RCG

Posting some detailed photos, complete with measurement would be enormously helpful if we're to make sensible suggestions. If possible, include photos of the model in various states of assembly. I'm curious as to whether the models are indeed designed as remote/radio controlled. Hinged control surfaces on the trailing edge of the wing would be an encouraging sign...

You're in a good forum to start with.....When you can post some pictures, we can help you find a better place, if there is one.

This is a very interesting subject......I'm thinking siluohette models for identification purposes..
