Default Early Lanier Plane

I have an early Lanier plane that my father won at an Omahawks fly in back in about 1970. It has never been flown or even set up to fly. I have no idea what it is worth. If anyone is interested I would like to give the RCU fellows the first chance. Let me know what you think it is worth. I have a picture of it if I can find them. It has one tiny broken part but is all there and a small dab of glue will fix it. I guess it might be too much aircraft for me. It has about a 60 inch wingspan.

This thread has some pictures and some information. My brother had a Comet and it was a good flyer, but a little overweight. The aero skin was pretty fragile and hard to repair when it cracked. Your kit might have some collector value if it is in mint condition.
