How about some modeling nostalgia? Feel free to join in...
My older brother built models when I was little, so I got the modeling
bug from him. I dimly recall going into hobby shops with him in the
70s. I didn't really get into modeling until I was almost grown, in
the mid 80s. I miss the mom and pop shops that were still hanging on
then. There was one left in my area by then, a nice older couple that
would order anything for you. They showed me how to order an amazing
invention called aftermarket decals...and had oddities in their shop,
such as eastern block kits. I couldn't believe that someone could
order models from the commies! I had quite a few KP kits,some NOVA/
Frogs and a few VEBs (my favorites).
They sold out and retired, and the new owners basically threw it all
away and were out of business within 2 years.
But those days with those kind of owners are probably gone forever...
