    Excellent workmanship and materials. A lot of people in this area buy things because they like them not because they need them. I see no problem with it selling.

    Who would be your market? It is too fancy and probably delicate for a kid to play with. And a parent would not spend that much for a non electronic toy. It is too nice to be a toy.

    Hi Betty. I saw the helicopter and that’s a pretty easy build and you could have it done in about 3 hours..I would say between $100 to $125 would be a good fair price..
    it’s all about what you want to put into it, time effort and materials cost money..

    Without making it one it would be hard to quote a price. How much time went into one? How much was the cost of specialty items such as wheels, fasteners, and other parts that had to be purchased. Without knowing my SWAG would be to say no less then $20 per hour plus double the cost of materials. That is probably on the low side.

    It appears that there is a Mil Spec Apache Helicopter plan in the March, 2019 edition. I assume that is the one since you think it is in the last issue of Wood. https://www.woodmagazine.com/magazin...icopter-extras

    They had the CH-47 Chinook Helicopter back in 2017 looks like: https://www.woodmagazine.com/project...nloadable-plan

    Question for Trout or anyone who makes toys

    IN a recent issue of one of the Wood magazines was a plan for a helicopter. I'm not sure which magazine or issue. One of the guys at the sawmill made it and asked Bruce for what he thought it would sell for. He asked me and I told him $250 upwards. Of course, the guy nearly fainted he was only going to ask $75 maybe $100. My question is, what do you think would be a fair price? I have no idea the amount of work that goes into something like that. Bruce said the item was perfection in everything, even the wood selection. Thanks!!! Notice the time RJ? AM not PM.
