yeah, I am always a bit hesitant to buy an open boxed item that could have been handled by too many people, one of them giving a fuselage a squeeze that causes a hidden former to pop loose that the LHS is unaware of. I would also have an issue with the fuselage being split open for inspection.

My LHS owner is a plane person but he barely has time to fly what he built 10 years ago let alone something recent. He probably has 50-100 different models at any one time and I don't expect him to have intimate knowledge of each one. Maybe your selection is less?
