  1. Nice to see Norwood Junction models again Tony.
  2. They used to be in Portland road near the railway bridge. Great old shop. I remember Model Time from the 1960s and the one upstairs in the Whitgift, can't recall the name though. There was also of course Beattys in North End.
  3. Just seen this. I love it! My late Dad was in LST 's during the war and although your model is slightly different to his ships it did remind me of him and for that I thank you.
  4. Love seeing this stuff Tony. I remember Airfix being 2/- and at the same time Revell being 2/11? I recall buying the Revell Me 109, Kawasaki Hien and Tempest during that period from Norwood junction models. I really wanted the Aurora Famous monsters of Filmland models but they were eight bob!! (I did get them later though.)
  5. So wonderful! Magnificent work Tony.
  6. Love it! I got one of those along with a Zero in a Christmas stocking in the early '60's. Didn't come out like that though! Lovely work Steve.
  7. A pretty good prize! To put it in context there is a brand new BSA Bantam 175cc motor bike for £122 in the same mag.
  8. I've just been reading RAF Flying Review for September 1958 which was given to me by a friend. Some great articles and the job vacancies for Policemen in Nyasaland etc took me back a bit but what caught my eye were the old model aircraft adverts. I obviously know Airfix and Revell and remember Eagle models but the others didn't ring a bell, anyone know more about Busch or Lincoln/Hawk? Anyway I took a few snaps for your reminiscences. If this is in the wrong forum I trust the mods will move, although I guessed this was the most appropriate.
  9. I love those old model kits. They have a charm all of their own. FWIW I own pretty much all the pre war aircraft cigarette card sets.
  10. Yes, still have them Rob. @rob Lyttle
