How Much ?
Dear SEN readers:
I am looking for some advice. Steve Helmick recently dropped
off his free flight models at my home as a donation to NFFS. I am
unaware of their overall value, but maybe you can point me in a good
direction so I can find out.
There are several Superba and Junior F1A models complete and ready to
fly, and they look like they've never been flown. All covered,
mechanical timers etc.
There are a couple of F1B models with nice motor tubes, tail booms,
connectors, etc. Several sets of prop blades: finished and not
They are all in a plywood model box along with some covering material
(silver mylar), NIB glider and Seelig power timers. There is a NIB
Piserchio winder that has not been completed.
I need some help in getting this stuff to some bodies who might be
interested in buying and using it. Best offer kind of deal. I will part out the
stuff if need be.
Thanks for your advice and help .
