For Sale
50 Year old collection / estate sale

Edit: List of new engines with prices for most are on post 60 in this thread.

I am trying to get a complete list together, but has become very difficult to document everything. However, I do have pictures of just about everything, except the electronics (radios, servos, related parts) - no pictures of those yet.

Estimate of total counts are:

100 New Engines
100 Used Engines
10 Futaba Multichannel Radios
50 Airplane kits
Tons of new engine parts/accessories
200+ wooden propellers
Tons of supplies for scratch building planes (balsa, coverings, irons, tools, etc)
A few boat kits, steam engine, etc.
I think there is close to every issue of magazines such as Model Airplane news from current day all the way back to 1958


This lot includes everything I have and haven't found yet that has to do with model airplanes and/or RC boats. Everything is included in the lot!

There are almost 500 pictures of the estate at:

Here are a few pictures for an overview of what is here:












Collection is located in middle Tennessee.

Interested in the Flyline Great Lakes if you decide to split it up. Sorry about your Uncle, he was quite the hobbyist. Wish I had $10,000 for it all, awesome collection.

For Sale 50 Year old collection / estate sale

I would be interested in the Airtronics Eclipse if you're selling separately.

Did your uncle have a large fleet built as well, or was he more of a collector?

Thanks

Steam engine & Boiler is $1000, the best I can tell this combo is around $1700 if bought new today. No reasonable offers refused!

Thanks
