More Modeling Memories

Here we have instructions for a very expensive model kit. As you can see, it includes tiny "wheat" light bulbs and a place for batteries, and everything.

Oh. Wait a minute. It's not an expensive NEW model, it's a moderately priced ($2.00) OLD one!

Yes, from the era that brought you a Luxury Car for $5000, it's a Star Trek model of the USS Enterprise!
You had to be careful not to use too much model glue where the struts attached to the primary hull. Too much glue would make the plastic so soft the nacelles would sag.
I think I went through three or more copies of this kit.
