Inner polystyrene tray is intact, if a little marked by the models in places now. Unusually, this set has the top moulded piece of polystyrene too (minor break repair).
Outer box with a charming and delightful full colour pictorial scene is a work of art in itself and displays well with no loss of colour vibrancy.
The lid face is strongly-coloured still and clean, with none of the expected punctures or heavy wear that often plagues this style of Gift Set box. Residue of old tape which kept the lid closed. A small area of surface loss at a lid end and base side. Light wear besides. The comparatively flimsy yellow card base into which the polystyrene base fits has some grubbiness and light wear.
Underside of box base:
