This issue is aimed at people more interested in the tin than the contents _ those people being collectors of stamps and other postal memorabilia. My guess is the vast majority of them will never have the shrink wrap removed.
Look, most modelers with half a brain know this kit isn't worth the plastic it took to mold it and that the currently available Revell kit is vastly superior in every conceivable way of you actually want to, y'know, BUILD a model of a '69 Daytona.
Even though it's a decent kit, unlike the Daytona, the same comments mostly apply to the recent tin-packed '53 Stude reissue. That kit has been reissued si many times that I expect it would take all of 5 minutes to locate one on the secondary market cheaper than the tin box one.
