1/32 PA67-700 Monogram Phantom Mustang F-51D - See-Thru Working Model - (P-51)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Rare first issue of this all-time classic and in good condition outside and dead mint condition inside. Hardbox is dated 1961. Although not perfect, this box is in well above-average 'good++' condition with great color and gloss, four solid corners, no stains, zero fading and no stains. There is no tape other than the factory sealing tape. The original price tag is still on the right short side panel. Flaws include edge and corner wear and scrapes at the upper right as shown. If you know these kits, you know they are usually in much worse condition. This model is still widely considered to be the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail. Buttons on the base activate two motors that make the prop spin, and the main gear and tail wheel retract and extend; two other levers on the base drop the wing bombs. Molded in the correct first edition shades of clear, red, black, silver and zinc chromate green. Inside, this kit is as it left the factory. All of the special presentation cardboard is in 'mint' condition and the two motors are still sealed. The parts were still wrapped in the original factory tissue and never even viewed until I did the inventory; I have carefully returned everything to the exact same position as it came int. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts present. Instructions and decals are correct for the first issue and feature the 'Horse' stand decal. The decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with only the smallest amount of yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are in 'near mint++' condition, again with very slight yellowing as the only flaw.
