Default Buying Older Parts

I don't suppose any of you know of a site/sites where you can buy older or oop bitz?
I'm specifically thinking of the older style marine bolters and backpacks, but also perhaps individual pieces from some of the older sets. I've got an annual from about '94, and wouldn't mind being able to pick up a couple of things from it, but obviously they're not available through GW anymore, as they're all very oop, haha.

I have some old school bolters and backpacks that I may be persuaded to part with.

Hmm, I wonder if we could do something like that here. Have a thread to where people say what they want to get rid of and what they would want for it. Kind of like a traders market.

We have a trading board which appears when you have 75+ posts.

If your looking to buy things, I would suggeset Ebay as there are quite a few OOP things going for reasonable prices most time. It's kind of a raffle though as you never know what's coming up for bidding

Yeah, I wander through eBay from time to time, although I'm always a little dubious.
There's just a slightly fuzzy feeling when you see early 90's style boxes, and it takes you back to when you first started in the hobby, and I'd love to find somewhere I could spend stupid amounts of money on old, lower quality sculpts... =P

Plus, you tend to find that with eBay stuff, it's hard to find either good-quality, unpainted, complete sets or NIB items that're from the time period I'm looking at. =P

I've never had trouble with ebay or the quality of model (taking into consideration you are buying an oldie)... and you can always strip the paint jobs from them.

I agree, if you pay enough attention to the description and the picture(s) provided and watch your budget, you can get some pretty good stuff off there
