Have you seen what these are on eBay for?
Cheapest I've seen boxed & mint is 850 quid!!!
Doubt it will sell but some US collectors are asking for $2k

Yeah i've got 2 of them on my watch list, i've actually seen completed listings of around a grand, not sure how legitimate they were. I was actually looking for the Monogram/Revell kit when this popped up a couple of years ago, couldn't believe it when i picked it up for £37! I guess the state of it put people off
