Classic Collector, here's one, but it's a crazy high asking price.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cox-USA-Control-Line-USAF-Rescue-Plane-Cessna-O-2-Skymaster/303370797082?hash=item46a24f001a:g:uVYAAOSwGYZd1KjJ
Needs a good cleaning, and it looks like it's mostly there, but waaay out of
my price range. Someone a little savvier'll chime in, I'm sure.
Also Welcome To The Forum!
Bob

Thank you Bob! I appreciate you sending the link. I am curios about the 1953 model that Cox introduced as their first RTF airplane. Glad to be a part of the forum thank you again!

Crankbndr: The bidder bid way higher than he won the auction for. Nice, but I wouldn’t dare fly it at that price. Two Cents

There is no accurate guides for these, some of the more experienced collectors can give you a pretty good ballpark based on condition and what version of TD-1

I noticed the above listing sold with a buy it now about an hour after it was listed:
Starting Price $239.00 4 Jun 2020 at 4:56:09PM PDT
Buy It Now $359.00 4 Jun 2020 at 6:05:52PM PDT

A like new, early model with a decent box is not very common.

Mark says there is no [u]accurate[u]guide, but in the files on the 049 collectors FB page is William Kelseys “value” document that tracked sales of many models. I don’t think prices have gone down on any of the collectors , so $359 looks to be a bargain.

I have seen that price list somewhere before on the net. I did not look at bidding Mark pointed out. I think buyer did good, seller could have got more IMO.
I would turn down 745$ for my Art Scholl Pits NIB, I have seen them go for 700$ but not lately. Since Scholl passed people are looking for his stuff including me.
I sold one of his tie tacks for 70$ and still have two, they sold them to fund USA going to Aerobatic Championships one year.

I'm conflicted on this "collector" stuff. I have many Cox and other "collectors" that I have paid ungodly prices for and they just sit there accomplishing nothing. I'm not a speculator, I keep all mine but have given a few away. My son one day will have to figure out what to do with them.

Give me a beat up old model airplane or engine, something I can get my hands into and I'm happy. NIB items are nice to have but in the end they leave me feeling empty and not just of cash.

I'll keep you in mind.

I have one but it needed a little help, so it's an in-betweener.
