If you want a cheap "builder" $65 is a good deal.
NIB Sky Dart IIs are going for ~$50 now.

Thanks for pointing these out. The Nighthawk looks like it may have been opened, but not the SkyDart. I'd ask for more pics, but fortunately, I've acquired both these, and need to hunker down for a while. If sealed, that's a reasonable price for the Nighthawk, and a great price for the SkyDart.

I agree with GH. No way the Skydart is a factory sealed kit.

I'm doubtful about the Nighthawk as well.
It looks like scotch tape strips at the bottom of the bag

Lol I know it seems crazy for the card to be upside down, but we really pride ourselves in accurately listing the condition of a kit. I have inspected that kit 4 times now and there are no tears , rips, slits, or tape on the plastic. The hang tag is crimped/sealed and fully intact. We even have a new sealed Mini Fat Boy from Hobby Lobby with the face card upside down. It is rare, but it can happen.

Thanks, those aren't the Skill Level 4 kits I'm looking for at this time.
