Yesteryear Box Type – I (Straw)

1979 was when the ‘Straw’ boxes were introduced into the range. These boxes were uniform in colour and now included a window panel at the rear of the box, this enabled the model to be viewed whilst in its box from both sides, unlike previous window boxes.
There are variations on this box relating to the text on the end flap, it can be either small (Box Type – I) or large (Box Type –  I1)

There is one other variation of this type of box (Box Type – I2) and that was the one used only for the 25th Anniversary edition Y12, that box (shown below) was the only one to be released with this design in all white.
