Try contacting the EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION in Oshkosh Wisconsin
I'm sure they would be interested.
If not the US Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio may be interested
Don't sell it on Ebay!

Hi Ed, thanks for the recommendation! As soon as I received your email earlier today I sent them an email (one from their website), so we'll see what they say.

One museum of the 6 or 7 i've sent emails to has already contacted me back and was extremely thrilled with the opportunity.

Will keep everyone updated as a decision is made. Thanks again!

bet the AMA would take it too as it is an early display of RC tech

It's a good thought, but it looks like they already have one...

There was a restored one flying at Joe Nall in 2007. I have pics somewhere I will post later. I remember the owner saying he had researched his plane quite completely, and was able to verify that Marilyn indeed did work on his model.

Pretty cool looking plane on the ground, and in the air.

There's a short clip showing these things flying in the movie "One Six Right".
For anyone who has never seen this movie and just simply loves aviation and flying, this a great documentary movie.

Also tells how Marilyn Monroe was discovered working for the Radio Plane company

Oh damn...I've seen that movie a couple times and I completely forgot about that part! There's some amazing photography in that movie. I highly recommend it (if you can find it).

Really cool Aircraft! I will have liked to study it closer, and see the original RC equipment!
