I collect the old model packaging from the 1960s and 1970s, with a focus on motorcycles, many of the illustrations are just great, you rarely find them on German flea markets anymore.

Harleys, Triumphs, and the early choppers, I'm not interested in tinkering with these models, it's the covers of these models, comparable to the few record covers from those years.
These covers are very often small works of art, very underestimated, even today, often to be found for very little money...

If I were 50 years younger I would be piling up the packaging of the 1960's toy soldiers, you all remind those little boxes,
with the impressive paintings on the covers...

Whether someone collects knight's crosses, party badges, or whatever nonsense, that's not the point.
It is the searching, the finding, the own joy in every find.

I've also been collecting "music" for over 50 years, records, CDs, everything, it never gets too much, one disc is still missing... :wink:

Ref. 85-5241 Historic Airplanes 1:48 REVELL MONOGRAM 2015 Plastic Model Kits Catalogue.
This model does not appear in catalogs prior to this year, so it is not a Revell veteran kit.
P-51D Mustang, Lt. Col. John Landers, 78th Fighter Group, December 1944.

I had that very box of IJA infantrymen years, nay, decades ago! IIRC it was all part of a package with a US M3 Lee and a horde of IJA. Lord the fun I had with them.....

A few years back at a local antique store, where they sold more than just antiques, I came upon a collection of kits, all aircraft, that I picked up for a song. I remember them as being unusual for over here in the states. Got them packed away in the attic at the moment. Perhaps later I'll dig them out and have a look at them.
