Model Builder, American Aircraft Modeler, Flying Models Magazines have to go!

This is the first time I have tried to sell anything here so let me know if I'm missing anything.
I just have too many model airplane magazines and I’m trying to reduce clutter around the house. Below is an approximation of what I think I have tucked here and there. They are not in plastic sleeves or immaculate. They have been read and handled, but are in pretty good shape. The ones with loose covers or tears I’ll just include as freebies. I thought I would post this here before they go on ebay just in case someone is looking for something in particular. I’m happy to trade as well. My interests are in small or micro scale electric planes so if you have anything from equipment, to tools, to materials, plans, flying scale models magazines (that’s pretty much the only mag I’ll keep around now), or even broken parkzone micros let me know and I’ll probably go for it. Below is a list of what I think I have a suggested price. Like I said I’m happy to entertain any offers. In terms of postage, I ship by priority mail and generally here’s what it costs.

1 magazine – 3$ first class

2-5 magazines – 4.90$ priority mail envelope

Up to around 20-30 magazines depending on their size – 10.40$ priority mail medium box

I’ll stuff as much as I can in those flat rate mailers.

Model Builder Magazine – What a great overall magazine. I have most of the issues up to 1990. From 1971-1975 – 5.00$, from 1976-1980 – 3.00$ and from 1981-1990 – 1.00$

American Aircraft Modeler – Looking back at these I’m amazed at the variety of offerings and information. I have a lot of the late 60’s issues. A few from the 70’s and a few from earlier. 2$ each

Model Airplane News – I have a bunch of issues from the 60s and again its remarkable how much information they used to pack into these magazines. 2$ each

Flying Models Magazine - Still one of my favorites. I have a lot of the 70s for 3$, pretty much all of the 80s for 1$ and some from the 2000s for .50c.2000 forward sold!

As you might imagine I’ve got lots of others lying around here too. Looking for inspiration? How about Air Progress from the late 50’s and 60’s? or Sport Aviation from either the mid to late 70’s or 90’s. Are these worth anything to anybody? Also, I’ve got some with torn covers or other wear that I’ll happily use as packing material so you get the most of your postage dollar. Feel free to message me with any offers.
All the best,

Any chance that you would have some catalogs, building instruction manuals, or brochures, for planes, boat, heli's, or cars?

Thanks, steve

I'm going to put them on ebay in groups. You might check my tag on ebay -
mistletoeflights - to see what's still available. I don't check rcgroups very often (I get lost in it and come out hours later).
