Pity they automated the lighthouses, the keepers were always portrayed detailing their ships in bottles while the storms raged outside (before they ruined it all by rushing outside to rescue some damsel in distress ).
Back in the 70s I built a lot of kits, before I started playing with full size cars. With my two brothers, we built a '40 Ford Coupe with a rumble seat (from a kit called Flower Power), and a custom Model T truck, as well as a dune buggy and a Chevy Nomad and a 57 Impala, and a '60s dragster station wagon (a Plymouth iirc). Also built a Ford F150, an AMC Gremlin, and a whole lot of sports cars including a Mazda RX7 and Porsche and Ligier Le Mans racers.
Built a White Road Boss with a fuel tanker (iirc), and a GMC (Actros?) cabover with a furniture trailer.
The only scratchbuild I ever did was when I was at high school, converted a Mk2 Capri into an OSCA race car (sort of a non-spaceframe PDL Mustang 2 clone), with handmade box flares and a rollcage made from pieces of the plastic parts frames, and the V8 from an AMT custom Ford Econoline van. I made a trailer from more offcuts of the parts frames, and spare wheels from other kits. The V6 from the Capri went in the Econoline, that would have made a terrible real-life tow wagon.
Must ask my mum what happened to them after I left home and she moved house. Probably got some photos buried in a box in the spare room.
