I'd only play with that if it was remote controlled. I was never into car or plane models, but I had Godzilla and monster type kits. Had the Pirates of the Carribean ones that used a rubber band to create "snap action".

That's a pretty cool set. I remember back in Junior High School, I checked out a book from the library that had plans for various airplanes that you could trace onto cardboard and then cut out the various parts of the airplane to assemble a plane similar to the one you posted. I've been searching for that book for years but still haven't found anything like it.

We need some pages from the Sears Holiday "Wish Book" 60's - mid 80's. Not sure if that got traction outside the States, but it was huge here. Those Mego's were awesome. Who knew how cool those'd be to the future "us"?
Just saw this from Ditch: "if you're technically too old". Nah, you might get weird looks, but the toys were better when they could be appreciated I think. Those 70's parents wouldn't have been drinking, doping, and swinging so much if they could just chill with all those amazing toys available for a few bucks. Adam-12. Planet Of the Apes. CW McCall!

StuDaBaker: I just missed some in the Britian thread right behind Siggy

Ditch Fahrenheit: There's one more of his threads left...I bumped it.

Buzzetta: I'm updating it now.

Buzzetta: I like my private little game that has been long since dissolved. I would tally up and keep tabs on suspensions and vacations when they used to publicly announce them. McKnowitall had a few records going with frequency and shortest time between strikes

Buzzetta: I would like to think that the mods are kind of on board with this as they did not poof the thread but locked it. In the last few years, threads have been poofed rather than locked to discourage this tally.

Ditch Fahrenheit: They were definitely on board 5 years ago. In fact, I suspect they were actively manipulating the scoring.

Ditch Fahrenheit: Plus, it's just better forum management to lock a thread rather than poof it. That way everyone has access to the information in the thread afterwards.

Buzzetta: There were those that chose to disrupt for the sake of getting points whenever they saw a thread was on its way out. However, the game did part of the mods job for them. It let them keep track of who and how many times someone was involved in nonsense.
