I bought the kit in 1999, but never had a chance to build it because of a string of financial catastrophes. It's now time to sell it. The kit I'm offering listed for $25,000. The extras I bought in addition to the basic kit cost $2,743. Taking into account inflation, I paid much more for the kit than the $19,900 I'm now asking. The construction documents and related updates are complete and fill three binders.
