Default Centuri Centurion on eBay....Wow

FYI

This auction is over (just ended), but this one was interesting. Original version Centurion with balsa cone. Unopened, and it looked to be in pretty good shape in the bag.

Over $300 final selling price. Wow. I've got one like this (in an opened kit bag though) so I did not bid on this one, but I was surprised myself at what this one went for.

Gosh, someone may snag those two Enerjet motors afterall....

That kit price was insane.

I paid less than $100 total earlier this year for a E24 and F52 Enerjet motors in a combo deal.
While not in bags or boxes, they are pristine and in unfired condtion.
That bozo will never get an offer at his starting point on those engines let alone his buy-it-now price. The ones I have seen in the display box packaging have went for less than his starting bid of the bagged engines.
