What you have is an over 20-year-old kit to build a 1/12th semi-scale Warbird. Very few people in the US are flying combat with this type of airplane but someone may be interested if the price is low enough. You should post it with photos in RCgroups classifieds and then post a link here.

As far as "what is it worth" a similar kit sold for $55 10 years ago.

I have two Ziggs Zero's left and we still fly Scale Combat here in Idaho. They are still competitive. Value depends on how much someone would want to spend on one.

As far as I know, your group is the only group flying that size scale combat in the US. The few other people flying scale are using a different size plane.

These kits is rare but the people who would want one, for combat anyway, are also rare. Hard to value something that has so few comparable sales. Maybe a listing with "best offer" would be the way to go. Basically comes down to what you or the people in your group would be willing to pay.

Yes we are the last hold out on 2610 Scale combat in the nation, unfortunately it is dying a slow death also.

What size plane are people using for combat these days?
Wish it was popular in my area.

I was referring to the 48" wingspan class of scale combat vs. the (about) 37" wingspan plane you get at 1/12 scale.
However, not very many people are flying scale combat of any size. Most people are flying non-scale combat aircraft because they take less time to build.
