Happy Halloween all. Here are a few more horror paperworks plus some pics from this year’s pumpkin parade at Sanary.
I found my childhood Stanley Gibbons stamp album today and thought I’d share a few images of some Ajman, Romanian and Czechoslavakian space exploration stamps.
These Ajman stamps feature artwork depicting some of the US Apollo missions.
These Romanian stamps feature US astronauts and Russian cosmonauts such as John Glenn and Yuri Gagarin.
I can’t find the date of this stamp but “člověk na měsíci” translates to “man on the moon” and the 1969 date would seem to celebrate the beginning of the Apollo moon missions. The letter ‘C’ on the astronaut’s chest could relate to Eugene Cernan, an Apollo astronaut of Czech origin.
Come celebrate Halloween with TVTA as we dig out our Don Post masks and get stuck into some fiendish meat snacks while perusing some ghastly comic covers, posters and ads!
This is the second year I’ve entered the TIG Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Contest. Last year I claimed some cool vintage Star Wars prizes with my Chief Chirpa pumpkin. This year I’ve cobbled together a full-figure Yoda using two pumpkins.
I’ve also dug out some old Halloween-esque Don Post ads from the archives too. Happy Halloween!
The 1986 Jan / Feb edition of Fine Scale Modeler featured a step-by-step guide on how to build a Return of the Jedi diorama. The results are impressive, and part of the diorama – featuring a Speeder Bike and Scout – is shown on the excellent cover, seen above.
Inside there are some nice modelling ads from companies like AMT, Testors, Fujimi and MRC-Tamiya, all of which feature below. Enjoy.
