Default 1976 pitts special

i have a old biplane its a pitts special was made in june of 1976 kit # 131 span 48' sport scale made by midwest

the whole thing is still in plastic except for one bag that was opened by someone thoughout the years but everything inside is there and ok even the decals are there

my question is what is something like that worth ?
got it at a garage sale and the person selling it had no clue about anything
so some input about it would be great thankx

You will get top dollar if you list it on ebay. My guess would be 200.00 -250.00 or so. This is a fairly popular kit with the kit collectors. Just make sure if you list it that you describe the condition exactly the way it is. Some of the kit collectors get very picky. To the point of being a real PITA.

Your 1976ish radio is not legal or safe for use any longer. Check the threads on radios. In 1991 the FCC required narrow banding of all R/C transmitters. Reason; they were adding many more frequencies in between ours. You may find cell phones interfere but that's just speculation...I'm not a radio expert.
