This is the page I am going to use to ask the questions
that I am still looking for an answer to.

I really would like to know who did the
box and instruction sheet artwork.



I've got a question for anyone with information.
Look at the picture below and let me know if you know what version that packing configuration might have been used for.
It has already been determined that is was not the JCPenny's catalog version.

Entire contents would fit in a 12x12x12 box.



There are still some box variations that I am unsure of.
Basically, these are types that could possibly exist, but I have never seen.
Any of the 1st 14 kits with a 1974 side panel.
Any Canadian or European versions of the 1974 boxes.

This one is a bit more complicated.
The first 8 kits, in 1972 boxes from Canada or Europe.
I've seen 1972 kits in non-domestic boxes,
and I have 1971 kits in non-domestic 1971 boxes.
But I have never seen 1971 kits in 1972 non-domestic boxes.

If you have seen any of these, please let me know.
Pictures would be even cooler.


Anyone have a picture of the T-shirt
from the Monogram 88 offer?


Kit 737

All I know, is that there never was a #737 on the store shelves.
The number falls between the Allosaurus and the Cave Bear, so I don't know if it was supposed to be part of the first wave, or something for the second wave. At first I thought it might have been the Stegosaurus, but now I think that was designed much later than when this number would have been used ('71 or '72)

Update April 2008 - from a second hand source, I have learned that according to Andy Y. it is nothing more than just a gap in the numbering. No mysterious missing kit, or anything cool like that.

I got this little item in one of the Revell-Germany kits that I ran across.
I'm curious if this actually came with the kits, or did someone just throw this in the box that I got

Update - it appears that this was enclosed with most of the RG kits.
