That WAS ME posted that Boston box-art!

And all the other pics, too, Mikey! But I will accept your thanks especially for the Boston pic, which was by far the hardest to come up with. Most of them I "swiped" from all over the Web (though I'm sure this qualifies as "fair use") . But I couldn't find a Revell Boston (or Canberra CAG-2) box art pic, to save my life. |
So I went to my stash, where I have only a "re-bagged" version, in a generic box with color copy-of-a-color copy-of-the original, pasted on the outside. It looked like absolute sh** - as I'm sure you can imagine - however I realized I could "merge" the colors (such as they were) with the contrast of a very good black-and-white copy. Which I duly found displayed prominently on the first page of the instructions (particularly typical of early Revells and Auroras).
Without boring you with how I did it (in Photoshop® - and yes, it is minor proof of genius ) you can see for yourself the results - plus, I included the b&w-only version, for your interest.
So - you're welcome, buddy! And be sure to send me your newest Boston pics, and writeup(s), when ready, Mikey.
