I really enjoyed RobotGrrl‘s post on EMSL where she unboxes a mint Heathkit AC Voltmeter kit and assembles it. She finds all sorts of amazing components like RCA “electron tubes”, a crystal diode, and a gloriously old skool instruction book. See her unboxing and build progress pix.

And if you’re into Heathkits, be sure to read Dale Dougherty’s ode to Heathkit in our MAKE Kits special issue.
