For Sale Kits for sale or trade!!!!

Post  duke.johnson on Fri Nov 11, 2016 12:57 pm

I have a bunch of kits I either won't get around to building, or have more than one of.  They are up for sale or maybe trade, depending on what you have, I'm always looking for Cox engines. I could use a daily runner .010 TD. PM me if you are interested in anything or have an offer. If not, they go to a swap meet in a couple weeks.

Kit list so far. Everything is plus actual shipping.
Brodak Ringmaster S-1. $60$50sold
Brodak Super Clown  ARF. Blue. $80 $70
Brodak Flying Clown. $50$40 sold
BMJR Profile Nobler. $80$70
Brodak Sweet Pea. $25$20
Brodak Shoestring. $60$50sold

Duke

I suspect some is market saturation.. us old(er) guys now have more kits than we can ever build

and some is time of year...saving for Xmas and to see what Black Friday deals are possible...

I am in the; too many now to ever build---- and it distresses me a bit to pass on some of these exceptionally good deals you are offering


I hope my post stirs some member to realize the great offers and help you out

I'm in the "I can't believe I bought that many kits over a few years" group. We moved my daughter to WSU in August and my boys got their own rooms. When we moved the boys around, we found so many kits, they were everywhere. These are just the ones I have at least 2-3 of. And I was feeling a little shame. If I sell a few, it might make my think "I don't have a problem". Have a good one Fred.

Ah shoot....

Sign me up for the flying clown. I am in the same boat of having too many kits as well, but I haven't done a flying clown yet.

PM me for particulars...

Luckily I looked into the opened box for Ron's Flying Clown, it had a broken rib. Don't worry though, I found two unwrapped clowns in the same closet. I'll build the opened one myself. I need a new lighter clown racer.

Ok. I think I'm doing something wrong. I typed in all the size and weight of the boxes and the prices seem super high. I can take them by the stores tomorrow if need be. But here's what the online sites say.
Ron-34"x7x4" @ 2.4# = $21.12 usps
Fred-42x7x6" @ 3.4# = $25.19 ups
Peter-42x7x6" @ 3.4# = $27.19 ups

Doesn't that seem sky high? I planed to wrap them with another layer of cardboard to protect them. My zip is 98579 if you want to check for yourself. I'll call them tomorrow to see if I screwed this up somehow. I'm sorry it's taking this long.

Hi Duke - I pm'ed you about how the USPS calculator worked for me - it came out less than the UPS charge.
I was helping someone with an ebay business and the biggest headache was shipping, so no worries.

Duke Those prices do not seem too out of line with my experience

I have a rural post office, so rarely anyone inline. I chat it up with my postmaster who is doing the send this box thing for me... She always lets me know the three or four options saving me a few bucks here and there

I have shipped several Brodak kits that size packed in the original outer box Brodak sent it to me in---- and one time just the Kit box, as is, with shipping label...but I upped the insurance to $100 from the normal $50 Priority mail provides...It arrived unmolested

Bottom line...send it and I will pay the actual shipping

Post  fredvon4 on Thu Nov 17, 2016 11:38 am

Just so everybody knows I asked Duke to ship it to me in just the Brodak box and cheapest no insurance rate

I assume all the risk..

Aside from the horror stories a year or so back with a CEF member shipping models that were delivered looking like they have been run down on the ramp by a berserk idiot in a high speed golf kart...I have had extraordinary good luck with the last 5 years of sending and receiving through the USPS

That.... and there is not much inside a well packed KIT that, even if crushed, can not be readily replicated with my large stash of good wood

Duke this is a long shot cuz I suspect you already have these

I have a few "I will never build" ORIGINAL kits to trade for the ARF Clown....shot my hobby wad for this year or I would buy it outright

Top Flite Kittens double
Top Flite Combat Cats double
Flite Line SNEEKER
Sterling WINDER
Black Hawk MoonGoose (not a typo)...copy of Dick Mathis Mongoose slow combat ship
Blackhawk Apocalypse very similar to MoonGoose

If you want to trade I am open to any single or combination of my kits in trade for your ARF

Just for full disclosuer... I managed to get laser versions of most of these and the original kits...SUCK imo

and admittedly I have way too much invested in these e-bay bids ...but hell what did I know 5 years ago when the nostalgia bug bit my arse....grin

I think I have those kits. I could use a .010 TD (daily runner) or .15  Diesel combat motor (sharma or PAW). I'm always a sucker for Cox stuff or free flight stuff
