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.


Excercise to Records!


30 days to thinner thighs

Top album is 30 Days to Thin Thighs, Hips and Bottom, Spot Aerobics, Upstart, 1983.

Then there is the insert for a Jazzercise record.

The next is actually a cassette version that I don’t have the cassette for. Energize with Exercise! Darrell Sisters Studio Arts Dance Center.

My mom actually did some of these.

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!).

Country Moog?


Country Moog: Switched on Nashville, Gil Trythall, Athena 6003, 1972.

Sorry about the picture quality, this is my cousin’s record and all I had was my iPad. It’s not for sale, or it would be at my house right now. This is just so incongruous it’s marvelous.

TV Books – Buffy’s Cookbook and Archie’s Wit and Wisdom

Books, Television

Buffy’s Cookbook, by Jody Cameron. Berkley Medallion W2092, 1971.”Buffy is a popular star of the “Family Affair” Television show.” Part of the Celebrity Kitchen series. Funny that they had to explain who Buffy was, like someone would buy the book not knowing. I assume that’s Jody in the background with the miniskirt.

The Wit and Wisdom of Archie Bunker. Popular Library, 1976. All In The Family

I could have done some clever post title playing on the “family” theme that both shows have in the title, but I didn’t.
