in my view.
I think the research that has been done (Don - where are you, are you ok ??)shows very clearly that Eagle did not do any mouldings in blue and did not bag any either. It is my view that this is a kit moulded by Pyro - all of their Eagles were moulded in blue and bagged inside the box - that has found its way back to the UK. I can't tell from the photo if this kit has the butchered 'detail' on the superstructure that occured whilst the dies were in Pyro's 'care'. If it does then it is definitely a Pyro moulding.The main gun turrets also show serious shrink marks characteristic of the Pyro mouldings.
Having said all of that, if you haven't got one and, then this is much better than nothing!
