Parts Packs

In Tim Boyd's excellent book 'Collecting model car and truck kits' I first read about 'Parts Packs'. I found it a fascinating bit of modeling history, and decided to try to build a list of the 1/24-1/25 scale parts packs issued by AMT, Aurora and Revell, plus their reissues. Most pictures were found on Ebay.
