Great History of Some Great Model Kits
|Value for Money:||4.0|
Having just read and reviewed Schiffer's book about Aurora Model Kits, I was in a model kit mood and happy to move on to this volume about the history of Monogram. The book is a very entertaining read, about a fascinating period in history, with many great illustrations. The book also traces the rise and fall of the model-kit building craze, of course, as Monogram was in the vanguard of this. All of which makes for a most enjoyable and informative book - I'm not sure if the kit list in the appendix is fully complete, or if the values are current (as with all printed price guides, they can go out of date so quickly), but in spite of this, I would recommend this book for all fans of Monogran and anyone interested in kits as a fun read anyway!
