Classic Kits revisits our favourite model kits whether they were tanks, ships, aircraft, spaceships or tractors.
With superb photography of boxes, magazines, kits and ephemera Arthur Ward reminds us all of a time when pocket money was spent on a Spitfire after school, which was assembled by tea time and destroyed, in an imaginary but fierce air battle, by bed-time.
Arthur Ward, with his expert knowledge, reveals the histories of the companies behind the kits we all loved, while at the same time giving us a fun look at our favourite models.
