Auto World Store carries many Monogram model kits in our collection for beginners and experts alike.
Monogram has been making plastic scale models since the 1950s, mainly 1:24 cars, 1:48 aircraft and 1:32 armored vehicles. Initially, Monogram specialized in the model racecar market with items such as a 1:8 scale Ford Model T.
The company was originally formed by Bob Reder and Jack Besser, two former employees of Comet Kits. Monogram merged with Revell in 1986 — today, both are owned by Hobbico. Besides MPC, AMT and Revell, Monogram is often referred to as one of the traditional "Big 4" in the plastic modeling industry.
How Do I Paint a Monogram Part or Kit?
You can paint your Monogram model kit in five steps. We recommend painting your Monogram model before assembling it to achieve a high-quality finish. [depending on the part, it might make more sense to paint first or assemble first]
Take the following steps to paint your Monogram scale model:
- Apply a coat of primer to each section of the model's exterior. Allow this coat to air-dry.
- Airbrush or brush an even, smooth coat of the chosen color onto each part of the exterior and let it air-dry.
- Use a paint remover or thinner that's safe for use on plastics to touch up any finish flaws.
- If desired, apply a topcoat.
- Allow your model to air-dry for 24 hours before assembling.
