Re: A fun topic I think: childhood favorite kit
I recall that the box artwork (photo) for Revell North Carolina was the exact same photo of the Monogram North Carolina (1/500)--obviously a mistake. This got my heart racing, as I truly wanted another Monogram N.C! I did NOT LIKE the Revell version of N.C.!
My favorite kit is an AMT 64 Impala, but my FIRST ever kit was a 1/32 1965 Mustang Dad helped me put together in like 5 minuets.
My first model kit was the 1/570 Revell Titanic, gifted to me during Christmas 1992 at age 8. My older brother was gifted the Revell 1/530 USS Lexington at the same time. I have both kits to this day in a box, mostly intact.
I would go to my local hobby shop as often as my parents would take me and I spent my allowance money on models and supplies there.
One kit stands out most in my memory, the Airfix 1/600 King George V. After building so many Revell kits, this kit stands out most, with the Airfix 1/600 Repulse next. They just seemed so much more detailed. The Revell 1/570 North Carolina was the first kit I built on my own, and it is special to me as well.
What say you?
