Wow! 21 pages of very interesting reading. Very Impressive!!

I'm curious what the market value of this set would be? It seems the gurus here tend to be pretty accurate predicting prices of specific kits. Taking all the blood, sweat, and tears that Poppy put into this kit, what would these sell for on the open market?

If I ever rewrap another Luddy kit it will defiantly be mod orange if it is still available. Last time I checked Sam was the only one that had it.

I was confused untill I saw the 1/2" of the original wrap.
i had originally wrote something on this thread, but now i see that it's an old one so, no need.
