I have not seen a Titan III for sale, either the Original or reproduction. Must be rarer.

I also have an original Vostock and Titan III kit. The problem is that they had a 20mm stuffer tube and I kept robbing the kits to get the 20mm back when the NAR Payload Altitude weight was a one ounce lead weight bigger than a BT-20.
I "think" that I replaced the tubes...

I seriously doubt this will be a "deal" when it's said and done, but this is a rare one. First one I recall seeing.

Yes, this one rarely comes up anymore. I was able to pick up two of these at various times probably more than a decade ago, but I really cannot recall the last time I saw one listed.

Agreed.
This one is VERY RARELY seen up for sale.
Since it's opened, it has zilch for collector value.
Strictly a 'builder' in my book. $125 tops is what I'd pay.

Wonder if it comes with the "free" MagnumB-D motor ??

Seller also has an opened but complete 'builder' Nike Ajax for sale as well.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.
ALL systems are GO for MAYHEM, AGITATION, CHAOS, TURMOIL, FIASCOS, AGGRAVATION, INSTIGATION, NUISANCE-ACTION, and HAVOC !

I think they state in their description that it was opened to remove the motor because it was not shipable. It?s a shame they did that however; I have had, I guess, hundreds of eBay shipments over the years that contained motors.

Did not see the corrugated upper and lower wraps, which would negate my interest completely. Does look like it has the moulded plastic pieces, though.
