Tex Hill Autographed Spitfire
I have an ARF Spitfire that was used as a display at one of the Wings Over Houston Airshows where Tex Hill and other aces were signing autographs.
The owner then of the plane lent it to them for a display and Tex Hill autographed it. It hasn't been flown since and I am not sure it was even flown before.
Any idea of what this might be worth? I am thinking about donating it to a museum.
Any thoughts would be very helpful

It doesn't look like museum quality. It looks like a lesser quality ARF. And unless you can also provide some sort of proof that Mr Hill really did sign it (autograph is not a fake), I don't think it has much collectors value.
(Also there doesn't appear to be any significanxe to the Spitfire as far as Mr Hill's military/combat dlying goes. As far as I can tell he fought ine AVG P-40s and USAAF P-51s)
