    Only 4 small gif images of parts of the ship.
    Certainly cannot build a model from these.
    When you click the link for detailed plans- their over $50

    Nice site for looking at drawings though.

    Check out the price on this small RC boat :-o
    It's yours for less than $10,000

    Well, phooey. I'm surfing around on a handheld computer, have to wait until I get home to open up the files, so couldn't see what was there.

    This one is just under $24,000 for you budget conscious folks!

    I just cannot believe they say they actually sold one of their models.
    That person was either a drunk, rich, idiot or they are lying!

    Usually Tall Ships models are around $10 000, cheaper ones are about $5 00,
    note these are already built.
    But yes, 24000 its too much, by the look of the pics i say 2000 to 3000 are the most fair prices.

    If built model ships are worth that much and they actually sell, I think that is going to be my newest hobby!

    cost of built ups.


    the thing is, he probably did what I do, figure on $20 and hour and multiplied the number of hours he dedicated to the project. Problem is you can't get paid that.
