if you still have the box it would be on the end by copy rights. Or if its a rerelease then you would have to write to them to fined out that info.

Thanks for the response.......Smile

I got the model #, but there doesn't appear to be any other info, other than the manufacture's address (AMT Corporation, Troy, Michigan) Sad

Seeing as it has Troy, Mic. on the box, that would date it to 73, that's where amt was then. I bet the kit is worth some money too.

Thank's for the link, I'll research it here shortly. Smile

The kit doesn't appear to be re-released material. I say this because of the "old" style (of the box), and the "yellowed" condition. But, I sure don't know at this point .

Reference my above posts. Even the Buyers Choice reissues AMT did didn't have the Try, Mich. address.

What you have there is an annual release made in 1973 only. AMT never re-released this kit (But I wish they would as I am making a '73 out of a '72 and a '75.). This kit is rare and you should hold on to it as it would be worth some money. However, it would be cool to see it built.

Hi Kevlar86......Thanks for the link. I'll give it a shot. Also, looks like you've been busy helping out another fellow modeler. I'm like him, all thumbs and no fingers when it comes to computers. Thanks again Big SmileBow
