Default Combat stuff value?

I have acquired several combat models in an estate. Most are in very good condition and are from GRS models and appear to be constructed of foam, balsa with some composite threads. They are covered with clear plastic covering and have motors mounted on them. The motors have Profi written on the sides, one is a cyclone. One is a 1/2a type, all foam covered with some kind of Kote with an older Norvel engine. I also have a spare 1/2a Norvel and cylinder and piston, I think it says AME on the side.

Anyone care to venture a guess of the approximate value of this stuff? I will probably list on RCU sometime soon.

Default RE: Combat stuff value?

I request help in determining the value for this stuff. Here is the breakdown with pictures to follow.

8 total planes - 6 large and 2 small. The large ones have a 42 1/2 in wingspan and the small ones ore 36 in.
2 large planes have Mejzlik Modellbau, Czech Republic printed on them.
3 large planes have GRS Models Metairie LA printed on them
1 large plane is unknown make
1 of the 1/2a planes has a tag from GRS Models on it
1 of the 1/2 a planes is of unknown make

5 engines are included and installed - 4 large size (.19?) and 1 small 1/2a (Norvel?),
1 large engine has MMB PROFI printed on one side and K03EN on the other
1 large engine has CYCLON printed on it
2 large engines have MAT printed on one side
1 1/2 a engine appears to have AMA printed on the side except the second A looks more like a triangle.

As stated in my previous post, I intend to list these on RCU but I need help determining a fair price to ask. What do you guys think?
Here are some Pics!

OMG!!!! I wouldn't even try to put a value on the larger engines. I've got no idea what vintage the Profi and Cyclon might be but they're not like anything you can just wander into your LHS and buy. I's suggest putting them up for auction and just sit back and watch .

I would go over to Stuka Stunt Works. It's a pure CL site with it's focus mainly on CL Stutnt but the are a very savvy bunch over there and they have a classified section as well. This should get you there: http://www.clstunt.com/htdocs/dc/dcboard.php

Hi 2Fast

Nobody seems game enough to come forward with any answers so I will set the ball rolling with an honest assesment.

What you have are 6 FAI combat models powered by either Russian or Ukrainian 2.5cc glows and 2, 1/2A combat models, that much you know.

Models without engines would be valued between 10 and 15 bucks. Those powered by 2.5cc glows, being superseded technolgy, could fetch between 100 to 150 bucks depending on condition and it will be mainly the engines that the purchaser wants as spares or practice engines.

The 1/2A engine is an AME which was the forerunner to the Norvel of the same size and again depending on the condition could fetch up to 50 bucks.

You do not have a gold mine on your hands unfortunately and the number of end users who would be interested small but at least you have a starting point.

The red foamy seems to be one of those Don Cranfill RTFs George was selling some time back. I'd put these about 1997-1998 vintage. The Cyclon seems to be a PC5 (swept back, underslung venturi). The Profi looks like a Kozjol. This was NOT a slow engine, they're competitive even today. One of the engines I can't identify.

.

I asked in the right place and got an answer. This is a 1996 or so vintage Doroshenko, probably made by Gievsky. Doroshenko won the WC at least once, probably more than once. The engine is fast, even by today's standards - 2.3 sec/lap. Parts are going to be non-existent, and it's a rare engine, so this one will probably go to a collector. Don't know what someone would pay for one, but it might be quite a bit.

Thank you everyone for responding and rendering an opinion. I think I will remove all of the engines and sell them separately one at a time and then sell all of the planes as one lot. I will post here when I list them for sale. Thanks again!
