But only if they could fit their dolls into it somehow. If they couldn't they weren't interested.
I vaguely remember that toy Electra (or Vanguard)......but at
$14.98 (whatever that was in old Aussie quids) was too damn pricey for us poor people. So one had to make do with those tiny plastic planes one got out of Corn Flakes boxes and stuck together. They were fun till some bloody visitor one day came and trod on me whole set.

It's funny how you remember those incidents and stay cranky about them for decades. I still remember the nasty little cow who broke my Pac Man. It was a great Pac Man that wound up and walked around snapping, and the stupid girl overwound it.
Oops. I'm older than your wife but younger than you. Put it this way; I'm old enough to remember when Farnham was cool but too young to understand why...
I collected cornflake box dinosaur models for a while but the parts distribution was really uneven. Even after you'd bullied the whole family into buying the 'right' cornflakes you'd end up with six identical tails and no heads...
So Worrals, since you can recall that raindrops kept falling on yer head when you played 20 Explosive Hits on your 33 1/3rd at home means yes you're younger than me, yes you must've been a girl alright (Johnny F was never cool to us boys) and I agree you must be older than me missus - since you've never thanked me for posting PW Herman's rendition of Surfin' Bird. I can therefore surmise your age bracket.....old enough to be taken most seriously but still young enough to get away with murder!
Sisemen - I think you've been exposed to the Slasherisation process too long. Good to see its rubbin' off on ya!
BTW Worrals, just in case you were too young to know how Gomez blew his trains up...
Cool! Your mum must have been rapt... actually I missed the reference, so thanks.

More like You're The Voice on a dodgy cassette (the bagpipe bit sounded even more wobbly after a few hundred plays) but you get the idea. In hindsight Farnsey was probably a bad example because his career spanned about four decades; he's probably heritage listed by now and would have to get a permit from the National Trust before changing his hairdo...
the word on the forum slasher is that worrals also has a penchant for killer heels too.
I did the same to my model Spitfire, once the wheels and guns had broken off and the wings had been glued back on numerous times. Penny bunger up the guts. The mighty Airfix Lancaster, on the other hand, was for display only, and gradually migrated from its thread supports to the top of the wardrobe, to the bin when I moved out of home.
