Default Q Modeling Andromeda

I am selling some kits. I have hand issues and really can't see building some of my collection. I have a Q Modeling Andromeda kit and can not find any information to set a value on it, nor can I find the what it cost. I searched both forums and eBay, but can not find anything on any Q Modeling kits. I would appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks,
Chas

Default Found one reference to $120

"When I saw that it was finally released, I happily paid the $120 for the kit."

Thanks for the information. I have a bagged Estes kit and a boxed Estes kit from Germany. The Q Modeling one seemed like a good idea, but I just am not building much. Scott Cook of DARS, the Dallas section, has an 8 foot upscale that he flies on H motors.

More corroboration for the $120 price point from the Qmodeling website thanks to the Wayback Machine. At least in 2008 dollars.

I was lucky and was offered an intro price of $99, an offer I immediately took! Haven't built it, tho...
Cannot remember the owner's name (Tom?), but I had purchased several kits from him directly already.

Thanks for the responses. I tried a few tactics to search, but perhaps was not all that sophisticated. Did get an interesting if not PG response to the modeling part of Q Modeling kits. Will have to see if anyone wants to buy it in 2018 dollars.

Since it looks to be permanently out of production, I would like to see it be a bit more valuable. Still, not looking to rip anyone off. It has been stored in the attic for years so I can not vouch for the decals. I don't do eBay, so will have to see if I can gauge the interest in this kit.

While I'm not offering (), I agree that the scarcity of this one should add value .
