I bought this from Japan back in 06. I've just started to maybe think about getting around to painting it for a shelfer. I've had everything out of the box a million times!
Check out the box... the majority of the damage and brown stains are from when the cleaning lady ( not mine, but when this was stored at the in-laws house while we were moving) put the IRON on the box and the iron leaked! Ha! I couldn't believe it, but everything inside was fine and the box was never mint anyway!
Also in the box are some door handles and wing mirrors that I picked up over time.
I feel fortunate to have a mint original bodykit and decals, despite a knackered box!

Very nice, your story made me smile. A great piece of Tamiya history and nice to have everything original.
