Just for my own curiosity I goggled AMT then Revell. Most of those kit are still avalible and lots more! Both sites I looked at let you down load the instructions and I believe that the kits actually have more parts then before. The 5 and 10's are long gone and the drug stores no longer have a hobby department but the internet has everything! If I want something I first locate it on the internet and then swipe it's nomenclature and part number. Then I plug it into amazon and find out who has the best price with shipping included and Taa Daa! Just like going to Woolworth's! You still can get those kits and enjoy them with you grand kids! Of course you have to go through a FBI background check to buy the glue but you can still have fun! BB
