MONOGRAM… quality model kits since 1945

Monogram began life in 1945 making balsa wood model kits of ships and airplanes. Their rival company (TVTA entry: Revell) started making plastic kits to which Monogram responded with their own range of “All Plastic” “Plastikits”.

The rivalry between the two companies continued over the years until they joined forces to become one company. Today they continue to enjoy that partnership.
