One thought on “Scale Models – Contents Listing 1969-1979

  1. I have been looking for the article Bandi Packard V-12 Sedan Kit by David Jane in Scale Models v. 8 , no. 89, February 1977. Can you suggest where I might find it, or where I can fid that issue of Scale Models?

    Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

    THankk,

    Yours Truly,

    Cliff.
