Is a Robbe ASW 17 Royal 4 meter a fair deal at $125?
I found one on consignment at my local hobby shop.
The kit looks old... but the box still looks like it is in pretty good shape.
What do you guys think?

Fair deal you ask?
There's one for sale for $300 and I thought that was a reasonable price but your offer price is unreasonable for the seller but very good for you if you can buy it at that price. This kit has a Plura (plastic) fuselage not fiberglass but the Plura stuff is quite serviceable and looks good. Hope you score.

So I get to the hobby shop this afternoon with money in hand.
I talk to the owners wife, and ask what the asking price was, since I wanted to make sure the store got its fair share of commission.....I didn't want their percentage of the sale to be diminished in case I low balled the offer.
She didn't know.
She called the employee who helped me yesterday, and still didn't know....
I gave her the $125, and then I tried to hand her another $10 for the hobby shop just in case.
She refused, and asked me if I wanted to offer $100 instead, as she was sure the seller (after talking to the employee), would have taken a much lower offer.
I said OK, and she handed me back $25.
So in the end, I paid $100 dollars, and left with a rather large box.
