Box & Packing
The outer box is complete with all flaps and no tears or repairs. The box though a little grubby now is strong however there is clear indication of past water or insect damage and this is clearly shown. The outer box is excellent condition. It comes with the original corrugated packing card piece in nice condition. The inner packing pieceis a strong card base with no tears, alittle grubby only. The plastic model protector bubble is nice, detached now and has minor splits to the outer edging only not the main bubble.
A hard to find and most attractive gift set. Superb models with a box complete with minor damage.
