Hello all ! This may seem a strange question but can anyone tell me if all the ACADEMY model kits come shrink wrapped / plastic film, from the factory ?

Thank you very much !

I don't know, but anyone can put shrink wrap on a kit.

Hi " G " 

You hit the nail on the head on that ! I purchased a 1958 Buick - A.M.T kit a while back and was surprised that it was shrink wrapped .They Never came like that new !

Not all kits come shrink wrapped.  I have several that arrived without the wrap.

In 1975 or 76, I worked at a Kay-Bee Toy and Hobby. We had a shrink wrap set up. When a new kit came in. I'd opene it, check it out and rewrap it. Nothing new. 

 

Remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
