The Aurora, Revell, Monogram Models Story

2020-04-03 - Paul Almquist

Did you build model kits when you were young? I built various aircraft, the USS Missorui battleship and had several early 1900's car models that my older brothers had built. Anyone remember the Baker Electric?

If you also built models then these names are likely familiar to you: Aurora, Revell, Monogram, Airfix. There were others. Here is a YouTube video on the history of 3 of them. It is an interesting trail to follow. Enjoy, I did.
