My Passion for Aviation

My passion dates back to the late 1950s and early 1960s. I could never get enough reading about airplanes especially about World War II airplanes.

Monogram Models was the best model airplane kits back then. All these box arts are still etched in my mind.

When Monogram released the Avenger I had to built it.

Working features, figurines… the works!

What more could you ask out of life back then. I bought another Avenger in the late 1980s or 1990s, and it sat in his box for more than 25 years.

The box art was different, but the instructions were the same.
