Default First Issue Cherokee-D Kit Scans

Here are the scans for a first issue Cherokee-D kit I picked up very luckily a little over a week ago in an eBay deal. For less than $12 per kit, I got the opened Cherokee-D; a pre-Damon (68-69) ARCAS sealed and mint; a pre-Damon Orbital Transport just about mint; a countdown tag Falcon boost glider mint; a 'Free Kit' Stinger mint; and a pre-Damon partially built Avenger. Photo of the batch is below.

But most importantly for here are the scans for the Cherokee-D kit, which is a first issue kit. It did not have the hang tag on the kit, so I do not know if it had a yellow pre-Damon hang tag or other. But, the face card and instructions do sport the pre-Damon logo.

Body tube length came out to right at 1/32th less than 14 3/8th inches, which is 14.344 long.

If someone has a drop box, I can drop them the full rez 300 dpi TIFF scans, which is how I normally scan these items.

I'll add the instruction scans in the next post.
