Not really vintage or rare kits, however a good find just the same. I had built  the Red Baron kit a few years back.

More like OOP. (out of production)

I believe that the tools for most of these kits are still in existence taking them out of the running for a rare kit.

A kit can still be a vintage kit even if it is currently in production though.

A lot of these kits were originally produced many years ago so if you happen to have an early version of a kit, it is a vintage kit, but not necessarily rare.

A rare, vintage kit would be something more along these lines.

In your first picture it appears that you have 2 Paddy wagons with 2 different release dates. (one is an earlier release than the other .)

An "original" or first release paddy wagon came with figures. That would be considered "vintage" and kind of rare and collectable.

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage
