This is the matchbox kit form the '70s. My father gave it to me for my 16th birthday. It was also my first airbrushing job. The kit was built complete out-of-the-box, except the masking tape seatbelts and buckles. I dedicate this to my father who served honorably in the Navy during the 1950's.
It is seen here after35 years in a box in the attic. i only dusted it and polished the paint and clear parts. The decal sealer is starting to yellow however. I am still amazed its in this good a condition after all this time!
