Collecting Vintage Plastic Model Airplane Kits

Book

Life-long model builder, collector, and connoisseur, Craig Kodera, examines the hobby of plastic model building to formulate a book on today's art of collecting vintage model airplane kits. The book features more than 300 detailed, high-quality digital photos of vintage aircraft model kits and their components, and is written in the context of what specifically gives models their collectible value today. Box wraps, direction sheets, and decals are also covered in detail. This book also highlights exactly what collectors should look for (and be aware of) in building their collections. For proper historical perspective, the author covers model kit development in the heyday of the 1950s and 1960s. Comprehensive value and pricing information for vintage kits is shown as well.
