This remarkable set comes with the accessories: Instructions, mat, glue, paints and paint brush.
Paint case is fresh, clean and bright , with the near-inevitable little tears to the delicate perspex inner.
Large sturdy outer box is an excellent, brightly-coloured example.
Complete and vividly-coloured paper label. Very light wear only – hard to find this good. Couple of light stains – but surely one of the best surviving examples. The outer box is always the most prone to suffering wear over the years.
A notable addition to any Corgi collection. A very difficult find indeed.
