Thankfully, we still have a great one!
I have a barber shop and a butcher I go to and they're only 2 doors apart. I'd rather support local businesses, especially those from my church.How about old fashioned bakeries? and butcher shops? No, I don't want to go back to landlines, newspaper/magazines, and tube TV's, but I do miss some of the things that we had back in the day...
I liked the AMT car models better than Revell. Revell made some good ones, but Revell were 1/25th scale an AMT were 1/24rth and the Revell cars were slightly smaller. being larger didn't make the AMT cars better but you couldn't have a Revell car and an AMT car side by side with an AMT car or the difference would be obvious.Revell Car Models in Plastic
Balsawood Planes with gas engines
Besides the typical Estes rockets, and flight line/RC planes, I built five or six of the Monogram 1/8 scale model cars. I built countless AMT, Revell, Testors, and Momogram 1/24 - 1/25 scale cars and a lot of WWII plastic model planes. I still have Lionel O gauge trains and a few Tamiya RC cars. I don't have any kids, so they all sit in storage containers. I set up the train every few years around the Christmas tree.Testor's, Revell, Estes, Monogram, Patra, Centuri, Lindburg, Marklin, Tyco, Aurora, Tamiya, Lionel, etc. were gods to me. HH
Now that you mention it you’re right,kids don’t use bikes as much as kids in the 60’s-70’s did. My folks were of the mind that using the car was only for necessities and if i wanted to go somewhere i had a bike or i could walk. I certainly was in good shape back then.See a common theme here: within bike riding distance.
Yeah, you don’t hear that much anymore either.
