HISTORY PAGE INTRODUCTION BY DICK ENGAR
What was it like for you when you first began building models by yourself, whether you received training from your father, your older brother or someone else who got you going? And how did the models on which you learned your craft come into existence? Who manufactured them and how were they developed?
DemBrudders.com will focus on some of the models that got many of us started from the 1950’s onward. Who can forget the venerable pioneers of the industry such as Aurora, Hawk, Revell, Airfix, Frog, Lindberg and Monogram? We'll also explore some history of those iconic companies that produced the kits for us. Dem Brudders hope as we present this online series, that you will enjoy the stroll down memory lane. Relive nostalgic feelings of your own idyllic and carefree days building the models we describe when kits were cheap and time to build plentiful!
Remember also the days of no worries about glue in the wrong places and when Advanced Modeler’s Syndrome hadn't yet been invented.
