carbons4, if you don't have a digital camera to document all of that cool stuff I'll gladly loan you one!

I wonder if the unlabeled 18mm motors are Pulsators or something like that.

.....Snip question re the Competitor.....



Reviving an old thread: Yes, all 4 fins on the FSI Excalibur are the same size,
though a true clone must have one side cone exactly 2/10ths of an inch shorter than the other.

Not sure, but that sounds like a great find.

I have, unopened, 2 Viking 3 's, MRK11, red hang tag, with the Louisville address lined out.
A Viking V #1029, White hang tag from Raytown.
2 BMS Viking 1 clones.


They are for sale if interested. Make an offer, as I have no idea what they are worth. Maybe someone can chime in to give me an idea of value?

Seriously though, the FSI Black Brants I have seen sell recently (over the past ~3 years or so) have went for between $80 and $100. Not cheap, but relatively reasonable.
The others I have no idea on.
Interested in the Javelin if you price it reasonably.
