Model Kit Art!

Trying to clear out my basement, I came across the following model kits I'd long since finished. Before I toss the boxes, I figured this art was well worth preserving.

Matchbox and Roy Huxley were a 'match' made in heaven for many, and it recalls for me many fond memories of building kits with my brother and our dad. If waiting for the glue or paint to dry was getting me down, gazing over these fantastic pictures on the box was always enough to counter any flagging enthusiasm.

I include a couple of non-Matchbox kits as well; the Skyhawk isn't even artwork, but I liked the note about the crew men, so I'll let it pass.
