The Story of Revell: Volume 1: 1950-1982 (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The origins of the Revell as a company date back to 1941 when an electrical engineer, Lewis Glaser, founded a toys distribution firm: the "Precision Specialities". The conciliation with the (emerging) world of models came when the company Gowland & Gowland had the idea to launch a range of plastic toys and signed a distribution agreement with Lewis Glaser. Thus, in 1951 appeared the first Revell kit. This first volume dedicated to the famous American brand reviews the various Revell products, spanning a 30-year period: from 1951 to 1981. This volume represents a must-have addition to every amateur modeller, who will be pleased to find nearly 400 pictures of airplanes, boats, helicopters and other vehicles which promise to immerse the reader into their childhood. It is also an indispensable reference for collectors.
