Pilot, artist, and model collec-tor Craig Kodera examines the exciting world of aircraft model kits from the golden age. Designed for kids of the 1950s, plas-tic models created many wonderful hours of enjoyment and perhaps bonding with a father. Those warm memories are what fuel today's kit collectors, most of whom now have their own families with whom to share stories of modeling fun. The book delves into the heyday of plastic model aircraft kits spanning the period from World War II through the mid-1960s. Collecting Vintage Plastic Model Airplane Kits includes excellent "how-to" in-formation and tips on building your own collection. Illustrated with more than 300 color photos of kits, catalogs, and box cover artwork, each image is explained in detail, with interesting facts about the kit, its history, and current market value. This book offers a knowledgeable, yet refreshing look at model collecting, and serves as a veri-table celebration of plastic aircraft model kits and what makes this one of the most endearing of collecting hobbies.
