Royal B-17 kit

I've found a Royal B-17 kit, 77 3/4" WS 3/4"= 1' scale for 4 .19 to .25 engines. Plans, manual, 4 spun aluminum cowls, and a bunch of balsa blocks and sheets. I know it's old, but in good shape. What's this worth approximately? Probably a candidate for E-power, right?

Thanks

Dare Design sells a similar kit designed for electric for $200.

I suspect the Royal kits go to collectors for a bit more?

Someone was trying to sell a 'mint condition kit' for $500 a couple of years ago.

What they list for isn't always closely related to what they sell for.

Hey, do you know anyone on your side of the pond that has built the Tony Nijius (sp?) one???

No, not personally, there appears to be a few of his Lancaster threads here, but not the B-17.

Mine is scratch built.

Yes, that one. How about the Lancaster then? It must be similar.
