I haven't seen this posted anywhere. I must be slow, since I just learned of this site.

Not only can you find old kits, you can read old magazines too. I think we should all contribute as much as we can. I know I will.

Thanks for the info. Why haven't you and I heard of this before? Oh yea, we're slow, I forgot. Looks like another place to spend way too much time. Thanks again

I may have posted a link to that site a while a go but it never hurts to refresh the link.

some fascinating work from the glory days of manufacturer/supplier sponsored model contests.

if you read through the comment/rant sections of those magazines it would seem that attitudes in the model car hobby aren't a whole lot different these days. :blink:

you can even see some of Tim Boyd's early models. :)
