This model is currently not in the Glenco catalog, but can occasionally be found on eBay and at https://www.oldmodelkits.com/

It appears to be a re-pop of the old Strombecker M-130, # D31-89. The measured scale of these two models comes in about 1/132 rather than the listed 1/144 scale.

And now, for a ritualistic shower.

Score and fold,

Yes, the Glencoe model was injected using the old Strombecker moulds. I saw today this model on Ebay at a reasonable price. Are you planning to design it anytime soon?
