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.
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.

Got this with some albums at an estate sale. I don’t know how it used to work, but now it just seems to leave behind a bit of a linty mess.
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.
