thats ridiculous..over $600...just to pack a box away in storage most likely

the sandman kit is far more rare and bigger

whatever makes a person happy,cause,there are far worse things to spend that kind of money on

I suspect (hope) Estes will reproduce this kit in the future

I hope that the case of the $600+ bid on the Centuri LJII kit is a matter of him placing a ridiculously high bid and someone trying to call his bluff - and then he has to eat it.


He's bid against me before, and I won. He must have not wanted the kit(s) so badly.

I'm really tempted to make one extra Little Joe II kit just to see how much someone will bid for it.

I say go for it. Custom work fetches a pretty penny. Besides, I'm sure a few of the lurking TRFers that wanted one initially and didn't would duke it out on eBay. :)

Sandman-
I could do a really nice template for you. Just put it out there for .99 cents with reserve of about $200.00.

What do you guys think a LJII in the wrap is actually worth? How high is that bid? Seems nuts...

I think that's the first time I've seen financing offered for a model rocket. :)

I was told once by someone much smarter than me that
a thing is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it... ;)

Gee, if he's willing to pay $609 for a 3.25" Little Joe II I wonder what he'd pay for a 4" one?

($609 / 3.25)*4.00 = $749.54

Assuming a linear Little Joe II price index scaling factor. (LJ2PISF)

:D
