Default Berkley "custom privateer"


I bought this model in its original box at an auction.

I do not collect model airplanes and would like to know if anyone knows anything about it?

Also I have a number if other models, motors, parts etc that I bought in the same auction lot.

I would be grateful for any feedback or possible interest?

1950's... huge Free Flight model that can be converted for modern RC, but the kit is becoming collectable and if complete and everything (including the box and instructions/plans) is in good shape its better off kept in current condition.

If totally complete and in good condition, that kit will bring a lot of money on Ebay.

I believe Ebay is the best because you are dealing directly with the collectors, all over the world.
Do not do Buy-it-now, as you will probably price it too low.

It is hard to predict what you might get for it, but I would guess 200-300 at least.
heck I sold a slotcar kit for over $300, and they were made by the train car load. Your's is RARE

I have one that my dad and I started many years ago, it will fly soon.
