Yes, Don it is! It is breaking my heart to sell, but, a hernia has also broken thru and needs fixed for over 2-years now.
I do have connections to sell to collectors, but wanted to give the chance for a fellow modeler to purchase it, this type of model is almost impossible to find!
Try and google or use any search engine you want, bet you have a very hard time finding one, if you can at all! The only place I know to look is here...
Collect Air in Santa Barbara has been contacted. It is a very nice business, and if it goes to him it is going to a good place.
He deals with this type of vintage models and art work.
The way the economy is, the value isn't what it used to be, but I'd rather not have to list it on eBay.
BTW-The only thing that resembles plastic is the acetate for the canopy. The black props you see are some kind of fiberboard, not sure what. Everything is wood or balsa wood. In the small bag is the wood "thrust" bearings for the propellers. The wheels are wood and the engine nacelles need carved from balsa. No vacuum formed styrene anywhere in the kit!
