MAKE your own Buck Rodgers 25th century figures…

I really like this 1933 ad, they sold kits to make toys and encourage the Maker kids to make REAL MONEY “Get this great outfit! Make toy castings of Buck with his marvelous Disintegrator Pistol . . . Wilma Deering, his faithful Lieutenant . . . and Killer Kane, the arch-criminal of the 25th Century. Paint your castings in bright, lifelike colors. Make all the toys you want. Sell them at a big profit! Millions of people are interested in Buck’s adventures . . . and follow them daily in newspapers and radio. Start your own toy business with this complete outfit. Make real money.”Link.

  1. My dad made one of these from that issue. It’s sitting in my garrage now, but it doesn’t work anymore…

  2. Check out the circuit board layout- not a straight line in it! Someone should make a PCB layout program that emulates the old tape-and-donut method.

  3. I’m looking at the parts list. What is a proper substitute for polystyrene capacitors? They don’t make much of those anymore.
