Just picked this kit up at a local Good will thrift store for $3.99.Basic model and not very accurate but shiukd make for a nice decorative model.

It looks like the model originally available at Barnes and Noble a few years back. If so choose your adhesive carefully. Elmer's will not be very effective as the paper stock is very glossy. I switched to Aileen's in my attempt to build it. It may require either a contact cement or a super glue.
In any event good luck with the build.

I find a clear contact glue, such as UHU, works very well on glossy surfaces. You have to be patient, though.
