My first sim....the vertibird
I was in Toronto Canada 1975. It was Christmas and I was 10 years old. The Vertibird was the only thing I wanted. My mom took me to just about every store trying to find that thing. Eventually she found one with broken control sticks, but I wanted it anyways.
I ended up using pencils glued in place.
I would sit for hours playing with the thing. Then I wired up a transformer in place of batteries. After that it really went fast.
Even back then I was tinkering with things. You have to love to tinker :-)
There's a place in Toronto called the Ontario science center. Back then it had a real big type Vertibird that you could fly around. I guess that has always stuck in my mind.

Its all earth!
