For me it would be a full-RC King Tiger followed by the Tamiya Zeros.
I'll have to leave my wife instructions on what my stash is worth when I die or else she'll end up selling everything for $5.00 a piece.

I got a nice gaggle of large scale trumpeter 1/32 jets, and USS Wasp 1/350 which is probably my most valuable kit MSRP...NO collectable OOP items,,my most valuable Jet is my Bunker Buster 1/32 Strike Eagle and F-18D Hornet...
I consider most of my kits 2nd Hand value if ever sold between 75 to 100 at most to move an item...MSRP is too high.

Paid a fortune for it in 1992 and it's worth twice that now.

Or it might be the mint unbuilt AMT Sonny & Cher Mustang. I understand that one's extremely rare, too.

The most expensive thing in my stash is a kit I won in a raffle at Nats...1/35 scale Flagship models USS Constitution Battle Mast. Followed by some of the Trumpy 1/32 kits, Tamiya Mustangs and some Wingnut kits. Also have a HK B-25 that I got second hand here on hyperscale.

Hasegawa's 8th Fokker Triplane, bought within the first yr of release 30 yrs ago. The 20+ yr old Amati 72nd fiberglass hulled U-VII. Until the recent repops, a couple Aurora 2001 Moonbuses, one sealed. A couple doz 43rd scale metal car kits produced by the now OOB great French company Phoenix that reg trade on eBay in the $300-800+ range. Japanese 43rd collectors/buyers LUV them! Bought in the 80/90s for $60-80, which was a LOT back then for a 43rd metal car kit.

Lots of Revell Ss and Auroras too. Most all bought w/ lawn mowing/paper route money when young, not recently on eBay.

Prob more but it is early AM.

Accurate Armour's Scammel tank transporter goes for 225 GBP or $355, and Nautilus Drydock's big 31" Nautilus sumbarine goes for $450 plus another $100 something for the lighting kit. Both AA and Naudilus Drydock are great outfits to deal with too.


I see the big 66" sub is available again in limited form... I really want that one too but it pushes $2000
