Does anyone have any good links for box art sites?

There's some nice art from some new models on this site:

I scanned a few in my collection. Most are too big to fit on my scanner. The two WWI kits are in 1/28 scale and quite rare these days. Never knew there were box art sites.

There is a lot of info out there... but the information is mostly piece meal, instead of being able to find it on one page.

This link has some Pretty Good links to the model sites, also along with some model box photo's... http://www.gasolinealleyantiques.com/kits/kitplane72.htm

Someone posted this link a long time ago, but I did't get very much out of it. I'll try again though.

I already have these pictures, but if anyone hasnn't seen them they are worth looking at.

Also I came across this book on box art while searching for pictures, you can prieview a few of the pages at a high resolution:

WOW! So it was Roy Cross who did all those great Airfix boxtops in the '60's! They are my favorites along with Hasegawa's Shigeo Koike---here's a site for the latter's less well-known work:

There was a great book that was published by Tamiya/Japan that showcased the artwork printed on their model kits. I think that they might've been the recent pioneer of the drop-out(white)backgrounds that was popular in their armour/racing car series.

I've been searching the web...

This looks like one of Mark Miller's 3D renders.

Thanks for posting all these box art covers. Brings me back to my youth. Revell and Monogram were the most available models to me as a kid. Tamiya wasn't available to me till I started leaving the modeling hobby. Then it was R/C.
