That must have been "nice" (I put that in quotes considering what overall damage was done with those checkerboard boxed kits to AMT/RC2), they were $8.98 around these parts.

Kinda sounds like you guys have something strongly against video games. I have a PS3 and a Wii and play them fairly often. I also build model car kits. Does this mean I have ripped a hole in the space time continuum? :D

if you have, then you are not alone

I graduated H.S. in 1995, now these kids are going to college? *sigh* Guess that explains why the music I listened to then is filtering into classic rock...

As part of the Gen X set of modelers here, I had video games growing up on the original Nintendo (Atari before that) and watched the internet be born (and had a Commodore 128 before that), and yet I and a slew of other people ate all still here, still building, and most if us are proudly still playing video games of one sort our another. I don't understand why some people feel the two "pastimes" are mutual exclusive of one another.

Agreed; many of my builds are inspired by video games. I rarely play anything other than racing games so for me the two kind of go together. Before Gran Turismo originally came out, a Skyline was a restaurant in Cincinnati. Forza 4 is my current favorite and I am in the process of building a few cars from my "garage" so I personally think that model cars and video games CAN cohabitate. B)
