P-51D Mustang ARF Kit, Top Flite Gold Edition, NIB, LPU

P-51D R/C Balsa (Not a cheap foamie) Model Mustang ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) Kit. $225 Local Pickup - North Dallas Area, Preston and The George Bush Turnpike.

This kit is NEW, IN BOX, only opened to verify parts and condition when I got it, everything original from Top Flite and it is a BEAUTIFUL plane. The kit is in new condition, stored indoors, all parts still in original bags.

Here is the manufacturer link and info on the kit.
http://www.top-flite.com/airplanes/topa0950.html

****This ad, since I originally purchased this kit to convert to electric power is duplicated in the electric plane section since it is not yet fuel powered. When it sells I will close both ads. Thank you for your interest, please feel free to ask any questions. I no longer have a place to fly something this big so it must go.****

Thank you for looking!

Ok, I'll ship

Last quote I got for packing and shipping the thing was about $80 plus or minus $10 depending on where in the US. If you would like to pay for shipping, I will ship it.

I'll take it by the pack and ship after work tomorrow and get an estimate and let you know for sure. Unfortunately I don't have a shipping box for it so I'll have to have something made (I only have the shelf display box in the photo). I'll get a quote with insurance as I cannot guarantee it's condition without insurance (to many delivery guys throwing boxes over fences etc).

I need to clear $200, as that is my absolute bottom price, I'd just keep it for anything less. Thanks, I'll get back to you via PM as soon as possible.

Cash,

I fully understand and I'm willing to add $5.00 for insurance if that helps.
Cheers Rich

Sorry, not going to work out, can't ship it.

I don't know how mail order companies do it. Of course it would help to have economies of scale and manufacturer built shipping boxes, but I was way off on what it will cost to ship. The pack and ship (UPS, Fedex, USPS) are all around $60 to even box it up, plus another $80 to $190 or more to ship. One quote from UPS was actually $260 to pack and ship/insure. So, I am back to waiting to find a box for free that it will fit and ship it, or sell it locally at the next swap meet.

Sorry, but it would actually cost me more money to sell and ship it to you than I would get.
