Pricing for a Ziroli Full Kit Beechcraft D-18 / C-45 Expeditor
This may not be the best place to post this...if you think I will get better info in another thread, let me know!
I am looking to buy a used Ziroli full laser kit Beechcraft D-18 / C-45 Expediton, Cut I think by Precision cutters. I have found sites where this kit can be puchased (new) for $330, but without plans. Is $350 a good deal on the full kit with plans? Ebay has short kits for about $220...
It is a decent chuck of change for a very large project...hence why I am seeking advice!
Thanks in advance...

If it is truly a full kit (cowls, windshield pieces, wire) then my opinion is it would be a great deal. But if just the wood kit and plans, then in my opinion not so much. Going to depend on how much you want it and how much you are willing to put into it. Plans new are $61, so you would be saving about $60-70 if you bought the kit with plans for $350 (if you don't have to pay for shipping it, that is). If you think it's a good deal, then it is, if you don't, it's not, is kind of what it boils down to....

If PCK is cutting the kit, you'll know that the parts will match the plans, and be made from the specified materials,
If the Ebay kit is from the cutter who I suspect, it will match the plans, but not the materials.
$330-$350, for a full kit, minus plans, glass parts and retracts, is fair for a kit of this size.
I've used Precision Cut Kits a few times, without complaints. If that is who you are referring to, you should be in good hands.

Thanks for the replies...it is the Precision Cut Kit and it is only the wood, but all of it (not the short kit). No plastic/metal parts included.
