Revell Modelers Club and even better Revell Master Modelers Club!

Revell Modelers Club Certificate
KIC Image 0002

I used to build quite a few models back in the day. Not a ton, I certainly knew kids who did more and better than I, but it was something I enjoyed. Here’s a couple of certificates from the Revell Modelers Club. Don’t know exactly what years they are, but I would guess late 1970s. Possibly early 1980s, but more likely ’70s. I wish I still had some of those catalogs. I built mainly cars, but also WWII planes and a couple of ships.

John Lee Hooker.

Muddy Waters.

Star Wars toy catalog from Kenner that came with some other Star Wars toy in 1978. I had posted this a long time ago, but it was taken with with a camera instead of scanned, and I don’t think it included all the pages. However, it’s kind of a moot point when all my old photos were flushed down the toilet by Webshots. I’ve got another one that I scanned but it saved as PDF instead of JPG, so I’ll have to re-do it.

There’s some cool stuff here, light saber toothbrushes, bop bags, custom vans… I really, really wanted Han’s laser pistol as a kid.

Notice the spelling of R2-D2 as Artoo-Detoo (complete with a trademark symbol!).

U2 The Joshua Tree CD Box from 1987

Ephemera, Music, U

U2, The Joshua Tree, 1987. Do you remember when CDs came in a cardboard box? There were two reasons for this, one, to prevent theft, and two, so they would fit in album display cases at the store. I don’t have the rest of this box, just the front cover.
