ENDANGERED ANIMALS - Model Kits by Revell

Thanks to Another Monkey's post on the DVD release of "The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" movie. From there, I landed on this page about a set of Revell model kits released in 1974 to make more people aware of the plight of endangered animals such as White Rhino, Mountain Gorilla and Komodo Dragons. Neat.

I kept on meaning to drop you an e-mail about those kits. I'm glad you followed the link on your own! And I found it exactly the way it's laid out in the blog entry - writing about Kamandi made me think about that ad, and then I googled an image search for "Revell komodo dragon" (I think) and found that site!

I was 6 in 1974. I wonder if that was the first time I ever heard the phrase "Endangered Species"?
