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!
Super Team Up: I love bacon as much as I hate Tampa Bay!

steveinthecity: Btw, the chard was fine. Very light taste, not bitter at all. Had it mixed with spinach and romaine to use as “greens” for salads.

Super Team Up: My Tampa Bay crap sandwich could've used some bacon harumph

Super Team Up: By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a terrible Rush song. There, I said it.

steveinthecity: They probably have more than one. Did they make any albums after Moving Pictures?
Sept 4, 2020 16:45:24 GMT -8
steveinthecity: oh, there was “Roll The Bones”? I honestly cannot recall them right now.

Super Team Up: They did make albums after Moving Pictures because that's when I was old enough to go see them. I remember Fastway opened one of the shows.... Kinda weird choice
Sept 5, 2020 7:00:17 GMT -8
Super Team Up: I saw them on Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows

steveinthecity: All those titles ring a bell, now. I heard “Permanent Waves” album on radio, and then bought my first Rush album, which was actually the 3-disc set “Archives”. I never did see a live show. I only know Fastway from their 1st album.

Super Team Up: Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie from Motorhead... Did they have more than one album?

Super Team Up: The fake crowd noise is the worst... I can barely hear the announcers.

steveinthecity: I’m not getting Tampa Bay, it’s St. Louis vs 49ers. +1 on crowd noise. I forgot there was no crowd at first, then wondering why the announcers are talking so loud.

steveinthecity: Ugghh...forgot. Cardinals are Arizona, not St. Louis.

Super Team Up: At least we beat Miami
