Old builds

Post by mophius » Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:44 pm

Here are three off the surviving models from when I was growing up. My dad and I did these as a joint venture but it was mostly him. Seeing as this was nearly 30 years ago they have lasted well.

What I find frightening is to think that many of the kits we now call The Cadet series are that old......

Nice builds by the way :D

I have one of those for use. There are three of the original in the vinyl cover. Myself, my late wife, my current wife. We all got them the minute they hit the book shelves in 1975.

I still have my original version that I've just about worn out reading and re-reading it.

Anyone remember this manual?

I don't remember that one but I do also remember having a copy of The Next Generation Technical Manual with the orange cover

After 30 years they seem to be still in perfect shape! And they all were very well built and painted too! Other than that I just saw some dust from time that gives to them a bit more sense of reality!

:)
Thanks,

Yan.
