Default Is There Any Value Here? Heim Airwolf .60


I was given this heli about 5 years ago. I was helping a friend pack his moving van and he didn't want to mess with packing this.
All I know is it is a Hiem (or heim) Airwolf. It has a fiberglass fuse and a set of grey plastic mechanical retracts. The tail rotor is shaft driven. The fuse is about 60" and the rotor span is 58". Blades are fiberglass. It has an OS .61 engine that looks to be in good shape. As far as I can tell, it is missing the clutch, drive gear, and fan.
I don't fly helis and this is hanging from the roof of my shop, so I was thinking of getting rid of it. I just don't have any idea what the value might be.

Well I have to mention that my boys (two youngest ages 8 and 5) are HUGE fans of Airwolf. If you consider selling the fuselage I'd love to have it to hang in their room! We wouldn't be able to handle flying it at the moment...so engine isn't so important

If you think about it please let us know!

Shannon and fam

Ancient mechanics that you can't get parts for.

A collector might want it. Running it on Ebay is the way to tell because the true value of something is what someone is willing to pay for it.

This used to be the top of the line Graupner/Heim helicopter back 25 years ago. I had one 10 years ago and had a hard time getting parts, bought it as a project and never got it to fly. The 'expert mechanics' have a unique design, and you'd have a hard time fitting something else in this fuselage. It is still a very nice looking helicopter

the appearance seems quite good, but looks with good quality, maybe you can take this to flea market for change.
