Halloween countdown: 5

TVTA has been busy preparing for this year’s Halloween. Costumes are ready, the pumpkin tools have been sharpened, the scanning room has been dimly lit, and Wooof has been busily reading his new pop-up book: Hey cats, how to turn into bats and back again in five easy steps!

Five. Fine. Let’s use that number to begin our Halloween countdown as TVTA presents five spooky posts oozing scare-tastic scans of the frightful and fiendish all the way up to October 31!

ZOMBIES

We begin our creepy countdown with scans from a 1982 issue of UK magazine Starburst which paid homage to zombies in cinema and TV.

Starburst 48, 1982. Cover. This special issue was devoted to screen zombies, and featured interviews with George A Romero, Lucio Fulci and Jean Rollin.

Thank you for walking with us! Look out for countdown number 4 coming soon…

2008 Airfix catalogue UK

The 2008 UK Airfix catalogue features model-making kits for Doctor Who and Wallace and Gromit along with the typical military vehicles and soldiers the Airfix brand is famous for. The high-quality 97 page catalogue was aimed at the UK market and is packed with wonderful photographs. Below are a few sample scans.

Doctor Who. The cover features a cheeky appearance from the Tardis to make the first letter ‘i’ of ‘Airfix’.
