30193Re: Unassembled Altair on eBay
- Apr 16, 2013It would be great, if Grant decided to make another batch of Altair kits.
With the steady escalation of prices of original Altairs, economics might be becoming a little more attractive. I think, in the past, the price of Grant's kit wasn't much different than the cost of getting an original unit. Even at that level, I don't think that there was a lot of profit for Grant, given the tremendous amount of work that went into producing a kit.
The million dollar question is how much would you really pay for the chance to build a replica Altair? I'm sure if the money is there, someone will eventually do it again, and hopefully it's Grant.
