I rarely partake in this scale but due to subject matter and fact the rear and front panels remove I did so.
Cheaper than eBay offerings.

That looks better than many 1:43. But for 60 bucks I'd rather double that and get a good 1:43 version.

IIRC, the 787B was the first of Aa's "premium" models, with fancy box and special cleaning cloth. I think it was around $90 when it came out.

Very impressive detail for the scale. Then again you'd expect so for that price...

Really nice model! But 60 bucks for a 1/64 model is very expensive.

Those together would make awesome "big and little" photos :)

Good looking 1/64. That scale certainly has improved a lot during last few years.
