I just gotta say...i Love flea markets.
Revell Ferrari 360 Spider

I Paid $5.....And the whole kit is still in plastic, even the decals and mesh!!! I couldn't pass it up.
Second I came across this:

I Paid $10 for this one. Both I think are going to be OOB builds, nothing fancy. I did notice the decal sheet has started to yellow, will they still work? I have never seen the mustang kit before and i am a bit weary if it is worth anything. Anyone have any info on either kits? Good kits? Bad kits? Thanks.

You should be able to place the decals in the windowsill under direct sunlight for a day or two and that should get rid of the yellowing. Those are some great finds. That Mustang kit is really a decent kit if you take your time with it. :sunglasse

360 is meh..It works but no Tamiya, the Mustang is an awsome kit. My parts are a little warped, but still. Great finds at price man!

+1 on direct sunlight. and if you are really a bit iffy with the condition of the decals, i know micromark has a decal film (liquid) that you can apply on the sheet to strengthen them.

and those are great flea market finds! :)

Great finds; that is the original issue of the Monte Carlo SS. Those optional wheels weren't in subsequent releases of the kit. Plus it doesn't have the nasty mold line across the trunk where they reverted the Aeroback SS back into the notchback. :)
