Response to Sale Price for Models

He actually placed an ad in one of those warbird magazines and then started to get some responses. He built quite a few and he told me he sold them for $450 USD. That does not sound too bad to me. He lived up here in Canada so he had to ship to his customer too but he had a method for that and all arrived undamaged. The price I mention is for a single engine fighter say the size of a Mustang or Thunderbolt. His work was top notch and he built it out of the box with some weathering. He had several customers who said he would take whatever he built with no time limit.

As others have said what we think something is worth does not translate to what others think it is worth. I have only done a little bit of commission work but it was mostly for companies and to be honest I had a hard time with the deadlines. It became a chore so don't do it anymore.
