LF 1/48 Hobbycraft CT-114 Tutors

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Throwing up the hail mary once again!  I am on the lookout for four Hobbycraft 1/48 CT-114 Tutor models.  I'm in need of them for a couple of commission builds.  I'll entertain trades or outright purchases, for a reasonable price.

 

Thanks!

wow. 1/48 unobtainium!! good luck! 

 

 I have had my eyes out for a few years now for one of these and never even seen one for sale. 
 

 I wonder how much it would cost to get a new one made? I am sure there are enough of us around to make it worth while!!

I see there's one one Ebay for $110 plus $20 for shipping.   I guess I didn't know they were so rare.

They are hard to find, but do not warrant a $130 price tag.  One look in the box should tell people that.

Yeah, I would never pay that much for that kit.  Just because it's posted at that price doesn't mean someone would actually buy it for that.

Biggest thing is, I think people are trying to sell it as a collectible, not a model that someone wants to build.  I get that they are hard to find, and I'm sure that he may find someone who will pay that much, but there are other deals out there.  Just gotta dig.

 

Having said that, I'm holding out hope.  I currently have three in my stash, but I kind of want to hang on to them, as I have builds of my own planned.

I've waited years for acceptable priced oop models. Have done that with the LE CC-144 challenger in 1/72nd scale kits. The nost I have paid is 80 CAD.

saw on facebook that the RCAF museum in trenton had one. $39.99. You can call and order over the phone....I almost did it but I just can't justify spending more money right now.

Hi Sean.  Thanks for the tip.  I just messaged them and asked them if they would hold it for me.  I have a friend who works on base and he said he'd pick it up for me.

Didn't work out.  Just got a message back saying it already sold.  😞

Not a bad price for the A-20 and C-47?  1/48?

Thanks for the offer, but the builds I am doing have current team markings.  That, and I have 7-8 sets of the older team markings from various Belcher Bits sheets.  So I'll kindly pass.

Hi Rick,

 

Do you still have these decals? Just did a quick search and found your post. You've peaked my interest.

 

Regards,

 

Mike
