Dave's comments:

Built this one as a kid. A great kit with the brass parts. In this original kit, they even show you how to "make" your own popcorn with Styrofoam beads for the authentic look. AMT reissued it in 1997 and did another decent job with the box art except for misrepresenting the brass peanut roaster and other brass parts. You can see Revell's 1970 version of popping corn in der Guber Wagen.
