Revell Cadet kits
These have brought back memories. As a young teen I built many of them and mainly remember how difficult they were to build properly! The first ones had silver plastic for the 'chrome' parts - I don't remember making any with chrome actually. I was very excited by the Vauxhall Cresta which hadn't been modelled prior to this. The VW Karman Ghia was a favourite. I remember making the Morris Minor Traveller and the Consul. All had the plain strip of clear acetate which was totally beyond me. To this day my least favourite bit of any build is the clear window part!
