Yes, the tinted glass was in one of the MPC boxed releases.
I had two kits purchased about a year apart in the 80's that looked identical on the packaging with the tinted glass and quality of the chrome job being the only difference under the shrink wrap. I made one built model out of the two kits as one had a few broken parts on the chrome tree and some puddled chrome over excess clear under the plating.
I built this kit back in the 80's, and all in all with some work it makes for a nice model.
Be prepared to deal with some poor attachment points on chrome parts and be careful removing them from the sprue. With some extra detailing and attention to basics it will build nicely- wish I had one in my stash right now.
