OK, I know the box might not be the most interesting part for everyone, but for all the RC nerds out there the outside of the box is pretty interesting. (and no, it’s not a bad thing to be a nerd about anything!)

At first glance, the kit (supplied by the good folks at Modelsport.co.uk) looks like something that was shrink-wrapped in 1983 and kept safe in someone’s loft, and only just discovered. But once you start actually reading the text and looking closely at the pictures, several things jump out at you.
