This bagged kit was bought a Telford in 1999 for a whole pound! Story goes that IPMS Avon was offered a van full of kits, about the night before the show. They put them in for the kit-swap, which was self-help that year. Their stall-holder was bored, and let me have this for a quid. I can't show you boxart, as it wasn't in a box. Part started - but well under 25%, ARE ALL THE BITS THERE?? That's the gamble. Almost everything is removed from the sprues, so a definite jigsaw build! Years later at Telford, I offered IPMS Sweden SIG my unused decals for a Viking DC-6 kit. They very generously gave me this set of decals for the final flights of a JA37 Viggen. A quick peruse of the instructions leads me to believe that I can build a JA-37 from the kit, with minimal pain - we'll see. This won't be a quick start as I'm busy on WhatIf II GB at the moment.
