After I got back into model building earlier this year (after 23 years “off”), I started looking around eBay for some of the kits I built. After just a little searching, I actually found two of these- one still in it’s sealed wrapper.
After posting on the Fine Scale Modeler Forums my plans to build on of them, and turn the built kit and the sealed box into a small display, another forum member sent me a re-issue of the kit. So I’ll have a nice display- the finished model, the vintage model displayed before building, and another still in the box.
I’m almost done, and should have some pictures up in a few days of the final build.
