Modeling on TV...Sort of...

Was just watching "That 70's Show" tonight. Near the end of the show,
Eric Foreman turns up in a t-shirt with "Slot and Wing Hobbies,
Champaign, Ill." on it...
Used to frequent that store while I was going to the U of I...was a gas
to see thier logo again. I'm hoping the shop's still there, and thriving.

At some point in the past, jerry 47 posted this interesting stuff:
It's a car commercial, IIRC..."Get to your Metro Detroit So-and-So dealer and take advantage of the Saturday Sales Event."

LOL...I think it's one of those generic national commercials, which ends with local voice/pic overs. You know, just like when you see an ad from Alex Trebek saying "Watch jeopardy tonight on NBC channel Detroit 4."

What movie was that where the guy took a newfound lady friend to a friend's impressive apartment that had lots of model airplanes hanging from the ceiling and they accidently broke a bunch?

There's a commercial running now of a dad and son with a half built balsa Catalina in it. I don't know what the product is. Jerry 47

Just got the latest CD by Steely Dan, "Everything Must Go". I was listening to it for the first time and I heard a line in the song "Things I Miss the Most" that I had to replay several times to before I convinced myself that it was a scale modeling reference (of course, I later found the lyric in the CD liner).
The line is:
"I'm building the Andrea Doria out of balsa wood"

Modeling on TV and film apparently is becoming a new trend.
I recently saw on video the movie "40 Days and 40 Nights" where the plot line has the main character takes up plastic modeling to get his mind off of sex. Some RMSers may not realize that these are separate activities!

Sounds like a horror film.

It was an 80's era movie that starred Martin Short who was trying to impress his date. I forget the actress' name (Anette ?), but she played the ex-wife of Don Johnson on the Nash Bridges TV show. Paul Glasser played the buddy of Matin Short who let him borrow his apartment for the night, which included the trashing of a Monogram B-29.

There was also an episode where Fes builds a Monogram P-51 Mustang . Too bad the box was a late '90s box.
