Very rare first and only issue from 1969. A large and well detailed kit of this unique underwater habitat. Molded in tan (ocean base), orange/yellow and clear. The delicate clear part is in 'excellent' condition with scratches and minimal wear; it has been protected for shipping. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals has one of the 'AB' from LAB missing. The box displays much better than the 'good-' grade but it is graded as such due to light staining to the left short side of the box top and heavy staining to the right short side. Box bottom (tray) has some light staining also but not much. This kit must be shipped insured.
