    a friend considering a purchase.
    Looking for a better understanding of market value and potential gotchas.
    Anyone on here know of a model guru or established appraiser or builder?
    Thanks,

    Rick

    The F1 Rocket is a totally different design than the Harmon Rocket. They look similar but share little if nothing in common. The Harmon was a modification of an RV4 kit where as the F1 was a fast build complete kit.

    Which means I lead the gator astray. (But not to Disneyworld) <- See that?

    I pointed him to VAF since there is MUCH discussion of the Harmon Rocket. Didn't realize the F1 Rocket was another thing all together.
