Default 1/4 scale Cessna K150A questions

ALL

I wanted to get some advice on my bird. I have a 1/4 scale 1969 Cessna K150A (built in 2004) that I picked up. Amazing detail in this thing.. I've only flown small planes so I've VERY new to something this large. Not that I plan to fly it for a while. But here are some questions I wanted to get help on:

1. The prop (a 2 blade 27/10) is damaged. Need a new one. Should I stick with the current 2 blade or go with a 3 blade? I have both 2 and 3 blade noses. And is a 27/10 the correct size?
2. There are a couple paint chips. anyone know the correct white paint so I match the current?
3. What would this thing be worth? I haven't been able to find anything close to compare to it on the classified section... It would be nice to know if I'm about to crash a $1000 bird or a $5000 bird...

Once I get finished cleaning her up, I'll put her all together and post some pics if everyone would like...

Thanks
Damon

Damon- it looks like that is a 3w-110cc gas motor- I would look on the 3w website and look for the appropriate sized prop- but 27-10 sounds about right. You could go to 3 blade, but much more expensive, and the full scale flew with only a 2 blade. This should be a very docile flying airplane. I had a 120" WS Hostetler C-150, which is similar in size to this, and it flew like a giant trainer. The value is only what someone would pay for it. If this was my aircraft and I was looking to sell it, I would price it in the $2000-2500 range depending on equipment. Hope this helps- Matt
