Evidently this model has made the rounds. I have spoken to a few collectors who specialize in cutaway models and they know all about it. They say this one has several negative issues that any serious cutaway collector would pass on. There are several heavy hitter cutaway collectors here in Florida and have seen that model in person.

Me personally, if I was crawling in dough, I would buy it in a heartbeat based on its uniqueness. I like it and would love to have it despite what the experts say.

Would be nice to have and restore, but most of us don't have that deep pocket.

This model has been on ebay for a very very long time! for the asking price of $5200 it will be on there permenaneltly unless someone is desperate enough to get it . I myself made an offer on it for about half and the seller mustve taken affense to it that he woult not even respond to my emails after the first time. Seller is a poor sport! Definitely not someone i would want to deal with at this point.

As for the model itself, the plus side is that all the wings and tail actually are removeable. The cons are that the repaint has been done very poorly and the plexiglass has many cracks and cutout damage that may not be repairable. And this is why this model is still unsold!
