Hills Bros. kit new

All the components of the Hills Bros. kit assembled.

The outer cartons are of the "tuck-in flaps" type. Although they can be carefully opened and reclosed, the flaps are of the locking type and opening will probably damage them. These boxes are designed for using them only once.

The inner cartons are uncoated and should be coated with wax once they are filled and sealed.

The outer and inner boxes and the components are shipped flat together.

This is how you will receive the unassembled components. Read the complete "Reproduction" chapter for tips how to fill these wrappers and packagings.
You will need glue for the wrappers and boxes, and a hair straightner for sealing the pouches. The matches only need a staple.
