In addition to a snapshot history of model kits, this colorful look back at these nostalgic treasures features histories and descriptions of the most collectible models produced by Revell, Monogram, AMT, and MPC. Color photos illustrate subjects like AMT's Trophy Series double kits, 1953 to 1962 Corvette kits, the rise and fall of AMT's annual kit line, 1/25 -scale semis and tractors, 1/16 -scale kits, road-going Ferrari kits, and dragster models. A final chapter offers advice on getting started in the collecting hobby and discusses the issue of collecting vintage kits versus actually assembling them.
