As always, ignore at will!

It really does not seem that long ago to me, probably because I am on a nostalgia binge. Anyway, what I listened to when putting together models.:

You listen to one song for the entire build? Either you're super fast or want to hate that song in the future.

That came to mind on kits from years past. Naturally, there were others on the radio or turntable. Not surprisingly, they tend to be the same tunes I listen to nowadays.

It may be possible to slap together a simple kit in the 17 minutes of In-a-Gadda-da-Vida by Iron Butterfly. I wouldn't know, but my girlfriend and I managed a liplock for the entire song, much to our astonishment and the amusement of others.

One song I truly hated hearing was Miss American Pie by Don McLean. A good song, unless one is subjected to it every lunch break, every day, for the entire school year. Forty years later, I can appreciate the song for what it is without reaching for a barf bag.

Cordially,
Bruce

My friends thought I may have been a bit more than half kilter by listening to this lovely woman's songs. I bought all of the records I could find on each stay in Lajes, Açores. I cannot boast of knowing every word in the lyrics, but got a reasonable translation from my mother, a young Belgian who spent WWII in Lisboa (English is her third language). Should I ever spend a dollar on the lottery and actually win, I will seriously consider retirement in one of the islands in the Açores group.

Did more than a few models with this and similar musichttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS2nNTcL60M

And no, Mike, not one model to just one song.

Geezing too much,
Bruce

Bruce;

The first one of your references that I pressed was for the Fujimi 48th scale A-6, and lo and behold, I hear the exact same music that was in heavy rotation on my little mono record player as I was building this same kit to back in 1971.

I hadn't thought of the CSNY song "Country Girl" in many many many years.

What a great song and a great rush of memories it brought back from that time. I can even smell that crappy orange scented (sniff proof) testors tube glue and the chocolate smell of the whitman's sampler box I used to keep my model supplies in. I thought that this was just the coolest kit ever at the time. I had saved my lawn mowing money for a few weeks to get it at Ocean View Hobbies in Norfolk.

This brought back so many memeories of the time that feels like the Epoch of history. We as a civilization have gone steadily down since then except perhaps for moving past the orange scented glue.

Gratefully

Was a cadet Corporal at Frederick Military Academy in Portsmouth.

I still have two Fujimi A-6s in the stash, and would like to build one before long, out of the box with VA-145 markings, even though they may be for an A-6E.

Here are a couple of memory joggers for you:
