Fantastic inside look at the goings-on of Monogram’s Dio-sheets from the 1970’s! Thank you!
Those Dio sheets are what hooked me on armor modeling. I’ve barely built anything else since.
I love this history and backstories to some of our beloved aspects of the hobby. I remember how absolutely blown away I was when I first opened up the Black Widow box and found that full color sheet. And the subsequent ones just kept getting better. I think Monogram hit a home run in terms of inspiring people to get into the hobby.
For some reason the text did not format well when I transferred it into the feature. I’ll go back and try to fix that tonight or this weekend.
I still have a lot of those!
Nice article Fred, thank you for posting it. Love those diorama sheets. Have several of them as they are one of the modeling items that I collect.
