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.


Chevy puts the Purr in Performance!

1957 Chevy Ad

I found this in some magazines that were getting thrown out. I opened one up and it fell on this 1957 Chevy ad that I’d not seen before so I cut it out. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get more. I’d sell this for $5. This magazine was called Holiday.

I posted a CD box of The Joshua Tree a few days ago, well, here’s some pictures I cut off the box from some blues CDs I bought back in the ’80s.

John Lee Hooker.

Muddy Waters.

Star Wars Kenner Toy Catalog 1978

Ephemera, Toys

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.
