    I have a box kite that was with a gibson girl, I bought it at a yard sale any idea what it is worth

    • I’m not too sure about the value of the kite by itself: there are none on ebay at present. I have found a complete radio outfit for sale here:


      I expect it might go well on eBay if the condition is good. Common defects are disintegrating fabric, rusting steel staples and bent longerons.

      From a personal point of view I’d be prepared to part with no more than £75 for one (provided the condition is good) as it would cost me about that to build one.

      I’d love to have a go with the rocket launch Conyne though…
