Default Value of IF744004 (Inflight 200 Lufthansa 747)?

I was hoping someone could provide an educated guess on a good price to sell a new/never displayed Inflight200 Lufthansa Boeing 747-400 model. ID: IF744004. I usually look on eBay for previous sales and the DAC database for an idea, but that didn't work too well for me on some previous sales. For example, one recently sold on eBay for $366 (Lufthansa 747 400 D Abvp Bremen 1 200 Scale Model Inflight 200 | eBay)

while here on the DAC database it shows an average sale price of $170 (although some people put unrealistically low values sometimes).

I appreciate any and all advice!

The database has terrible price estimations. The amount the Lufty sold for is normal.

Id say anywhere from $300-350 is about normal. At one point there were 2 on eBay that went for around $400

Thanks for the information, I truly appreciate it. I never want to charge more than necessary but definitely don't want to feel sellers remorse when I sell something for well below it's value. I do like to sell my models at a fair price because I know they go to great homes with the members on the forum!

That's right on the money, no pun intended. I think I paid about $350 for mine, about a year ago.

I got mine for about $200
It was from a friend so maybe the pricing he lowered for me?

I would say yes, he lowered it as others have mentioned (and sales show) the price tends to be much higher.

You also mentioned to me you've seen the model sell for 500GBP so you must be even more excited that you got yours for $200.

A year ago, I got mine for less than $200USD. Seller was not a friend of mine and was purchased via DiMA forum. If I am correct, Ben (nurunet) gave me a hint where to look at and voilá!The only flaw it has is a missing/broken antenna, but leaving that aside, the model was purchased in perfect condition.

I wouldn't expend $300 or $400 dollars for a model that can be reproduced in future. The best example, is the IF200 KLM B744, people was paying over 300 dollars and a week later, PLOP, InFlight announced a new batch of them (different registration).

They key is to be patience and scavenge on every website or forum, spot the sale and get the model. Just this week a KLM Asia B744 was sold for only $160usd, within minutes the model was sold I guess. Damn, I wish I could be that fortunate buyer.





As Yoda would say: "Patience, my young padawan".
