This model is physically in excellent condition with no broken engines scratches or dings or reglued items.   The decals are in great affixed condition with no flaking.     That is likely because the decals are protected by a thick layer of nicotine which sadly shows a very noticable brown tinge disoloration stain over most of this model.       The model likely once proudly was displayed in a Travel Agency or in the “Smoking Lounge” at an airport somewhere in Canada back before smoking was prohibited indoors.
