Test Shot Kong, Witch and more!


Now underway, the 10th, Pseudo-Annual Charity Auction!

Featuring exclusive, pre-painted test shots of King Kong and the Wicked Witch resin kits!
Add two Trek kits, one Naval and five autos to make ten items for this tenth auction in five years.

Now running for less than a day, Sunday Dec 13 to the PDT afternoon of Sunday, Dec 20th,
$141 has already been bid on 7 of the 10 kits, with two of those in competitive bidding!
Kits are often sent freely to me for video review, so I want them to go where they are more
useful than my shelf while helping a given community in need.

As of the 9th PACA back in July, some $2,950 has been raised for a baker's dozen of charities.
100% of all bids go to the charity listed. Packaging, admin, materials costs are my contribution to the effort -in addition to the kits.

There are six charities in this round; American Cancer Society, Doctors without Border, World Food Program USA,
Harp Seals.org, Sharon S. Richardson Hospice and Make a Wish. More details can be found here.
Updated last January, the June auction added $225 across several charities.

First item on the block goes off in just three hours from now while resin Kong and Witch end in just under 5hrs from now. This is your last chances to get these two kits months before the final versions are even released!

So far, Kong, Nestle Crunch and Custom Ford van have no bids, while others are sitting well below market price. Now's the time to act! Best luck to all and happy bidding. Thanks to all for helping with this charity auction. We are currently sitting at ~$160 raised!

Wow! In the last 2hrs, Kong has joined the fray with 10 bids and sitting at $150! Make-A-Wish will be very happy as that makes $250 with the current Wicked Witch bid included.

A few other car kits have inched forward with a few dollars to their bids. The Nestle Crunch and Lindburg Ford continue to wallow by the roadside with no bids.

Just one hour before the first kits start going off, you now have just under 3hrs for Kong and the Witch to close out this 10th, pseduo-annual charity drive!
