Here we have a lovely and rare example of the (Airfix,Stingray fantasy box)
As this is a fantasy box, the concept is what it might have looked like if Airfix had made a box for the Stingray back in the 1964.
Done in the style of the old Airfix boxes from around the 60s, it will make any collection look fantastic and if your a Gerry Anderson Collector then this is a must for you.
All our boxes are printed directly on to the correct grade of card for the period, and using the very best print methods available.
None of my boxes have been spray mounted or done on a cheap inkjet as they look (Awful) !! What you get is a box which looks the business and will compliment your toy or collection perfectly.
All artwork has been sourced from my own boxes and sometimes with the help of friends
Back in the 60’s when you would have sent off for the kit it came back to you in a plain cardboard box with a picture slapped on the top which depicted the Stingray toy.
Here at retro we have used the same artwork they used on the box, and carefully reworked it to make it into a proper full scale toy box, and one which could be displayed with the toy and make it look how it was supposed to look. Not with a bad cardboard box which was how it came… we feel this is a much better look and we hope you agree that this box on any shelf with the model will be a fantastic homage to the toy in question.
All boxes come with an original looking advert from the 60’s advertising the Stingray Airfix kit, this is also printed on original looking newspaper to give it the original look and feel of the period.
Please be aware that all boxes are made from scratch, so what your getting is a fresh box every time.
All boxes take roughly 3 days to build from the point of ordering, so please be aware of this when placing your order.
Your box will be sent built up, I will not send any boxes unmade or flatpacked unless specified in the above description.
