Default I was looking for something else...

...And found these.

Here are three MPC kits that were part of that 'find' around 1990.
While I found MPC kits in an out-of-the-way hobby shop near Las Vegas,
these kits were from a hobby shop in the Los Angeles area.

I bought a couple of each kit and opened the ones where the packaging had been damaged.

In the case of the Lunar Patrol, the cutting pattern for the parts was printed on the balsa sheet. Centuri did this with some of their kits too.

Well, since the boxes are opened I guess I will just have to build them.

I don't know about the paint schemes. Pink fins on the Flare Patriot?
