I happened to find this thread about the 1/24th scale Monogram Sports Car Series and how they were developed..and how that series taught the design and patter model builders how to work I the 1/24th scale model car arena.. It was fun working with Gary providing this insight... I also noted a post by Art Anderson indicating the kits were a failure and that failure is why BobJohnson was fired from Revell-Monogram...hmmm .. I happened to be part of those years at Monogram and Revell-Monogram..because I AM Bob Johnson.simply put, Art Anderson does not know S**t from Shinola! The sports car series eventually evolved into the extensive series of muscle cars, the pro stock Camario and T-bird and the amazing NASCAR series we began developing right after the 1981 Daytona 500..in a decade, this series sold over 13 million kits in multiple versions. When Tim Cawley came to Revell-Monogram, it did not take long for me to realize this soap salesman from Proctor & Gamble knew nothing about the hobby industry..Our son was 10 and growing up without his dad..I RESIGNED on April 15th of 1991 and moved to Charlotte, NC forming IRT Design..doing NASCAR licensing and research..I was a founder of Accurate Miniatures and the person behind the 1/24 Corvette Grand Sport using reference photos I found in the Monogram files...I created Creative Masters at Monogram in1984, and led design on NASCAR die-cast for Revell Collection, Carousel I, 1320 Inc., Team Caliber, Mattel NASCAR, and HO projects for Classic Metal Works..love the two buses! I have done the rework on the Brawner Hawk for Replicarz as well as the two Marmon Wasps, the two Challenger I models, and the upcoming Lola T-90.. I write the annual book text for AutoCult...by the way, our son earned his Eagle Rank In BSA in 1999 And is now a Major in the USAF..I am a 25-year BSA leader.... Hey Art...deal with facts; not your uninformed vitriol! Happy building!
