Default Looking to ID a scale heli and get an idea what its resale could be

A friend of mine has a scale turbine powered heli that looks like a bell but has a ducted tail rotor with Ibelieve 8 blades. He has it disassembled now, so I dont know how many blades it has. It's a big sucker too. He is looking to get rid of a bunch of stuff, a few electrice 400 size helis, a Hughes gas powered, and this big monster, so I am looking to put some amounts on them for the local swap meets. He has a nice trex 450 with the blue anodized head.

Depends greatly on what it is. The ducted tail rotor is called a fenestron like the Vario EC135 my friend Rich owns.

Its very close to that model, the difference being the nose is more UH1 like.  Almost as if someone stuck that boom and tail rotor on a bell. 

With a Turbine, what would something like that sell for, never flown.

Like I said, it depends on the specific model, the equipment installed, and most importantly, what someone is willing to pay for it.

A couple to several grand maybe.
