Since its beginning in Chicago in the 1940s, Monogram's plastic model kits for cars, ships, aircraft, and spacecraft have captured the imaginations of hobbyists everywhere. The thousands of models Monogram made from 1945 to 1986 are described in detail, shown in over 300 beautiful color photos, with several new images, and are complete with their updated collector's value. The popular cars range from classic hot rods and flashy custom cars to NASCAR racers. Interviews were conducted for this book with company executives, designers, and model sculptors including Darryl Starbird and Tom Daniel, artists who painted the box art, and salesmen who put the kits on store shelves. Today the kits and finished models are themselves collectibles for beginning and advanced modelers alike.
