Today's Vintage Ad


Rick Robinson said...

Not apropos of this ad, but I sure wish I'd been good at building model airplanes, or any models for that matter. I always thought it would be cool to have well made and painted planes hanging by thread from the ceiling in my room when I was a kid. But I always made a lousy, glue-streaked, blotchily painted, wrinkled decaled model with pieces missing, and they always got thrown away, often before I even finished them, or half finished them. Eventually I stopped buying them. ** SIGH **

If you look at the list of contents it varies from the numbered pieces in the illustration towards the end.

Rick, most of us made lousy models when we were kids, and it didn't help that the kits were poorly engineered. You should try some of the new ones.
