It is a great memory Harry,especially getting in touch with a guy who was about my best friend in that period of my life.We now talk about the kits we did as growing kids into adult hood(becoming a adult was the stupidest thing I ever did lol).
I started with cars and planes and military did nothing for me.Every monday night our church had what they called craft club. you could build model cars,paint,electronics(think crystal radio and electric motors you would build),knitting and others.My friend always gravitated to the models.I think they were 1/43,glue bombed,all brush painted so they looked pretty bad but we had fun and the hook was set,We were I think 8 or 9 years old.I been doing ever since and love it.I got reconnected with my friend and he has started building again.
What do you guys do with and how do you store decals? I have decals from the 70's to present and I need a better way to store them. Right now I have them in a big file folder in my file cabinet.What do you guys use?
