Ya Know Stik !

   This may be a " Zombie " Post but for some of us it is now appropriate . I just recently got , at a yard sale a sealed Revell Model Master Club Model .It was after Revell swallowed Aurora ! It's a Jag . I still have some stuff but no patch .The Navy called my Name so I went .

 By the time my Navy and Marine time came to an end it was gone . I had three daughters and a son (The Son now passed ) and had to think about Colleges and stuff . Modeled a little on weekends .

 But ! I fondly Remember that and the Parents Magazine  Model Builders Club and  such .Got great models that way from Granny .( she did it for me .) Oh My , Those WERE the days !  T.B.

I appreciate that you resurrected it, too.  I was a member of the second incarnation of the club, the one with the "Get it Together" magazine (it was the Seventies, man!).  I still have a couple of my membership cards, signed by Royle Glaser Lasky herself Wink.  I don't have the iron-on decal-that T-shirt wore out decades ago.  I don't have the patch, either.  Mom sewed that onto a knit cap for me, and that, too, is lost somewhere in SE PA.  I do still have the file that came with the little tool kit, the putty spatula, and I think I still have the tweezers.

I wish I had the newsletters, though.  They might be in the attic at my dad's house, but I haven't seen them since I went off to college in '82.  I remember some of the build articles, though.  And the running series of stories about hero Delmo Kitsalp, and his machine to turn models into 1:1 working objects.  His nemesis was Monty Graham, who was always thwarted in the end.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

I was a member from 74 to 77.

The "Tool's " came on a part's tree, and you needed a tool ... to get the tool's !

The set of 4 Spring clamp's lasted for ONE build, then they snapped and became truly usless.

Dont know what happened to my patch, But I wore the T-Shirt out !

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

I vaguely recall clamps, but I don't think I ever used them.  I recall them as being shaped like a capital A, with the clamp's jaws at the top of the A, and you'd squeeze the legs to open them.  The clamps had no spring at all, so they really couldn't hold anything in place.   The tools were made of a soft plastic, like the plastic Airfix uses for its figure sets.  The tweezers were passable, though, as was the putty spatula.

The file was good, though, and I still use it routinely, though I've since added a lot of other files to my tool kit.

From the magazine, I remember two build articles in particular, both with 1/72 airplane kits.  One was the B-24D, finished as a Ploesti raider, and the other was the PBY, finished as a Black Cat.

And I remember an article with tips on building sailing ship models.  I remember instructions and an illustration showing how to make a rigging tool, out of a piece of brass rod and brass tubing.

I should see if I can find those old magazines...

I remember being in some kind of club when I was a kid, but I don't think it was this Revell club.  I think it was called "Young Model Builders of America" or something like that, and this would have been late 70's/early 80's.  They sent me a kit every month, and some kits I remember building are an F-16 in the red, white, and blue prototype colors, a Douglas A-26 Invader, and a UH-1 Huey.

Revell Master Modelers Club deals w/ raised panel lines “LOL””

 

When this club was around, it was the same for Tamiya and Hasegawa. Aside from a few 60s vintage 1/32 Revell kits, and some more (then) recent Nichimo and Otaki kits, nobody was doing recessed panel lines.
