Model building time capsule from 1969 Revell X-3!
I have been searching for one of these in the shrink wrap for a while. I remember buying this kit at a small store above our local market. It was the 88 cent store, which was not like the modern 99 cent store, but more like an “everything they don’t sell downstairs in the market” store. I would ride my Schwinn Stingray down there and head straight to the model section, where a boy with a dollar in his pocket could get a decent kit. I remember buying this kit in 1969, and building it in an afternoon and flying it all around the house. So here, the insides, not having seen the light of day for 51 years, is Revell’s 1/65 X-3 Stiletto. The box was in great shape except for one end that had the wrap embedded in it, the insides reflect packaging of the day for the less expensive kits. I can’t wait to build it!
