      Hi Cody,
      If you are talking about the display model company in the UK, than yes they shut down several years ago.
      http://www.leadingmodels.co.uk/ is the company that bought most of their assets.

      Yes, Space Models Ltd is long gone; I was production manager there under its final ownership. After receivership, the moulds & mouldings were bought by a competitor, the core staff model/pattern makers formed Leading Models Ltd and the myriad sub-contractors were scattered-to-the-winds......

      Sorry, no, I don't know the value. There is an aftermarket for the models, but 99% of the models were made for commercial customers such as the manufacturers, the operators, the lessors etc so availability would seem to be very limited......
