Tim, Where a kit like that is concerned, it would be good if you could try to determine how complete it is. Prospective buyers would want to have some idea of its completeness, including how much of the metal fittings set is present. If it seems to be pretty much all there, that will definitely favorably affect its value.
Don't worry, you'll definitely make money on it. Good luck with it.

many yreas ago this kit was sold in Germany too. At that time I had not so much money to buy one ( DM 180,-- something like that ) but today, if you have good luck you can find it at EBAY for EUR 300,--. I think it would be a good idear to get this on the market again, like Revell will do with the NS Savannah produced with same machine like 1959.

Even if in magazines the kit was marked as " no good, many mismatches ", today I would buy one.

Are there "Fittings" (a little box of lead pieces) if not maybe 20$ depending on the amount of wood - I just bought one in October for 120$ complete.

HEY UMI have you forgot about copy right laws. NOT a good idea if he sells them but he can give away as many plans as he wants. Just a thought .
YOU should have said something about that one ??

BUT your right those plans are hard to come buy and it would be a good service to others.
FOR you that did surprise me some. ?
