usaf c17 globemaster iii

so yesterday i picked up a c17 that had some damage to the front nose gear but other than that the plane looked pretty mint. the guy sold it to me for $150 with everything but a receiver. which isnt a big deal at all. ive already ordered the parts to fix the front gear but im wondering what do you guys think it was worth it. he gave me a bunch or parachute guys that u put in the back and when u open it in flight they all parachute down.

$150 Including shipping? and if the damage to the nose gear isn't bad then it seems O.K. considering I've seen these C-17's go for over 200+ from Australia!

yea shipping and everything from Maine to Miami lol. as far as me and the hobby guy down the street from me it looks like it took a nose dive landing and bent the steering arm but other than that everything works. im at work right now but ill upload a similar pic of mine but mine was painted all black with yellow lightning bolts on the side.
