Overview
The origins of the Revell company date back to 1941 when an electrical engineer, Lewis Glaser founded a toy distribution company called 'Precision Specialties'. The reconciliation with the world (emerging) models arrived via the company Gowland and Gowland who had the idea to launch a range of plastic toys and singed a distribution agreement with Lewis Glaser. Thus in 1951 appeared the first Revell kit version of an unassembled Gowland and Gowland toy, a clunker Maxwell 1/16. The first volume is dedicated to the famous American brand, and reviews the different Revell products year by year from 1951 to 1981. Fans will be delighted by what models end up in the nearly 400 pictures of the airplanes, boats, helicopters, and other vehicles they were pleased to get in their childhood, or that are still enthroned on their shelves. It is also an essential reference book for collectors.
