I must be slow, since I just learned of this site.

Model Encyclopedia link

Not only can you find old kits, you can read old magazines too. I think we should all contribute as much as we can. I know I will.

It certainly looks hopeful. Maybe it will become another lasting source for builders. I sure hope so, thanx!

I can see where that would be a good site to surf through. Thanks Don.

I got to the second issue of Model Car Science and saw two models of Bob Paeth's. Lot's of history here.

I've still got a number of my old (mid '60s) "Model Car Science" mags, but honestly the totality of "Scale Auto Enthusiast" is light years beyond what we did back then. Quality of photography and how-to articles wasn't that great either. SAE has been the standard for decades. Thanx.

Bob used to write for Model Car Science. He did so for a number of years but I am not sure of which ones it was. I know when he started he was still working for Revell and also after he left Revell.

I remember once I was telling him about a tip I had gotten from MCS about spark plug wires. You would take a piece of thread and hold it on a candle with your thumb. Then pull the thread. The friction would melt the wax enough to make the thread pose able instead of loose and floppy. Bob started laughing and dug around in his model room until he found the magazine the tip was in. It was in MCS and he was the author of the tip. We both started laughing about that. I went into the Army in 1965 and the tip was written before then. Not sure of the date. I have 4 Bob Paeth cars in my Museum. I wonder if any of them are in the magazine. I know the Floating car was on the cover on MCS but again not sure when that was.

Here is a link to the Bob Paeth Models I have. Plus a bunch of pictrures I took in his model room the first time we meant.

Great memories and hilarious tip! I don't remember that one. Glad, too, you have fond memories of one of the champions of that era of the hobby. Thanx!
