Remco Radio Kit

Who wouldn't want one of these? Remco Industries of Newark, NJ was a toy manufacturer in the 1950s and 1960s. They went bankrupt sometimes in the early 1970s. The Remco Radiocraft kit advertised below is a crystal radio with a tuning coil and a single transistor as as an amplifier. They had many other kits and scientific toys and another radio with a decent germanium diode and a sliding contact coil. More here.
