1977 Graupner Mini Nimbus - NOS


I have a pretty rare, NOS 1977 Graupner Mini Nimbus. I acquired this 4 years ago in an estate sale and held onto it until the right time. I canít confirm that everything is complete but from what I see it appears to be. Iíve seen some examples online and everything appears be correct for the time period. The box has wear and one of the corners has a rip but has held up well for 43 years. Donít hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Asking $4k

I think around 3700 bucks less may find a buyer.

Yup. We all did. Wasnít doubting your credibility etc. itís actually a really well presented advert. Nice pics and plenty of detail. Iíve watched Hobie Hawks new in box go for north of $1000 US, but never a graupner kit. It will be interesting as I said. I can think of a lot I would do with $4k as apposed to owning a kit on my shelf.

I think Tahoed was more in line with his estimate as seen here:

8000 pesos shipped would probably find a buyer. It's a nice Graupner kit and it appears to be complete. Not trying to be rude or sarcastic, just trying to point the seller in the right direction as to the current value.

One of the kits one must really want at $4K for a 4 decade old kit.

Wow, $4000.00 ???? Maybe $600.00 , it’s only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Sorry not being rude, but no way is it worth $4000.00 in terms of value for this type sailplane. Good luck with the sale, but suspect for what your asking for it your going to hang on to it for another 40 years. Let’s be reasonable. Again I can see value in it in this world of foam airplanes, I hate foam, and it’s a nice kit, but for that kinda of money you can buy a heck of a nice all molded big scale sailplane.

I say…respectfully…I think it’s worth a lot more than $300, but not $4000.
Nimbus is not the more desirable cumulus. And your box is not mint.
Look up graupner cirrus abs cumulus here and see pricing.
If you ask $700 and have some patience it should sell.
$4000 is rather unlikely…but you never know if you don’t ask!

What’s the forum rules about price bashing? The guy can ask what he wants so if you don’t like it move on or pm him and have the discussion instead of blowing up his thread instead of ruining for him. You never know what someone will pay, there was just a great planes giant super chipmunk on feepay that he had for $950! Guess what it sold for, you got it, went buy it now for $950. Thinking about putting mine on there
