Your photographs have really improved since you got a new camera. Do you use a tripod or any kind of special lighting?

Thanks. I have a small tripod and sometimes I use a portable lamp but certainly nothing a pro would employ.

Here are some scans of my 1967 Topps Terror Tales cards:







I love the contrast between the fronts with their sickly greenish tinge and the bright pink backs. It's a very tough set to complete though.

The Aurora Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde kit doesn't seem to get as much appreciation as is bestowed on most of the other Aurora monster kits:

I built one as a kid but I was too young to do a good job. I still enjoyed it though.  :)

Interesting that Hasbro, unlike some others including Kenner, didn't cheap out on the colour palate offered in these painting by number sets:

And the brush looks decent too, much better than the lousy ones you get in modern children's craft sets that are neither use nor ornament! That's what I find most impressive about vintage toys (besides the artwork/designs), they were made with quality and pride, unlike the junk my kids get at christmas nowadays.

I have the Harris reprint hung on my closet door and a Warren original rolled up in a tube. Love those Warren posters.
