I had that kit once, but I sold it on eBay for a bunch of money. I should have keep it because the artwork was so cool.
I don't remember all the details but I think the cool model box art disappeared with some truth-in-advertising type laws that happened sometime during the Nixon years. And because of those laws, when Revell reproduced the kit years later, the box looked as so...
Although some model boxes still have cool artwork, such as this similar Revell kit:
back in the mid 70's I had a shit load of what would now be cool collectable model kits un built in stock sealed box. my dad was a car guy him and his dad worked in and ownd and ran car body shops. so they were all way's buying little model car kits and things for me and my brother . to build with them. but over time the closet go to full of them. so one day after a yard sale around 1984/85 they all went in to the trash can! what ever did not sell for $3.00 to $1.00 at yard sale went in can! even my star trek and star wars model kits.
beat they would be worth good money now days on Ebay.
