You are bidding on JP Model's Javelin II Sailplane Kit with the following specs:
Wingspan - 134"; Wing Area - 1,005 sq. in.; Wing Loading - 7.2 oz/sq-ft
On the box it states that the Rolled Plywood Fuselage is extremely strong and durable and, in fact, is stronger than any other construction technique that we have seen for R/C aircraft fuselages. The JAVELIN wing panels are locked to a center block which is pinned and rubber banded internally for a sleek wing mount which will pop-off if the sailplane ground loops. The rolled plywood fuselage with the fiberglass nose cone is tough, straight, and factory pre-painted with white epoxy with a mirror-like finish. The fuselage requires no additional finishing.
Easy to Build - Easy to Fly
Ideal for Novice or Experienced Flyer
Cost of Shipping & Handling is a FLAT $25 and I will only ship to the Continental USA

Thanks for Looking !!!

Stains don't always mean Damage!
I wouldn't be too worried about a stain on an old kit box! It's what's inside that counts.
A stain on the outside of a cardboard box from the 1970's isn't proof of "water damage"!
I have 30 kits dry stored from the 1980's, no water damage ever, and a few of the kit boxes show bleed through from the corragated cardboard glue. I live on the Texas coast, 15 miles inland and the natural humidity is 90% most of the time.
This bleed through is just what happens with an old cardboard box, it's especially true of cardboard kit boxes that have the last, outer layer made of white cardboard, and the under/inner layers made of the coarse brown paper.
You can't tell a thing about a kit by looking at the box!
I make this statement on my own, as an honest point of fact, about the boxed kits I have.
I do not have any knowledge of this kit, or it's owner.
Some of you might not know what time does to a 40 year old cardboard box.

Wow, wish I were in a better place to get this right now...I built and flew one YEARS ago in contests......nice flyer, but it does not come with spoilers. I added some, and it helped in the contest landings.
Good luck with the sale.
