    Your right, it's insane.

    First - why would any LN plane owner want to keep the plane and let the box go? I keep mine stored inside plane sacks, then inside the box to keep rust off.
    Second - Does this guy think there are LN plane owners out there that bought the boxless version and now want to upgrade?
    Third - is this guy just an idiot?

    I wonder how many of these people who have bid on this read it all the way though?

    Clearly "not" the person who has the bid up to $135+.

    That really is insane for sure...

    Hope Thomas Lie-Neilsen doesn't find out about this. If the box sells for more than the plane, why should he even worry about making planes. Just make the box.

    Nope, he is not crazy. But he is savvy to the world of collecting. A lot of items have much higher value if the box is included. I can think of: pistols, die cast cars, dolls, and much more. Often just the box will bring more than the original contents. Currently old ammunition boxes are bringing big bucks. Same with fishing lures. His offer isn't odd at all. But, it does make one wonder about the sanity of the human animal.

    Man, if I could sell all of my boxes for that kind of maney, I could buy ALOT of new tools (not that I need that many). I think I hav eabout twenty in the arsenal.
