Monogram was founded in Chicago in 1945 by Jack Besser and Bob Reder and originally made balsa wood models of planes and boats. In the 1950s the company introduced plastic kits and soon became one of the leading producers in this field in the USA, along with Revell. The range comprised cars in various scales, with a focus on customized and racing cars, but also planes, boats and military vehicles. Monogram was owned by Mattel from 1968 to 1984 and then merged with its former competitor Revell. Revell-Monogram was sold to Hallmark in 1994 and to RC-airplane maker Hobbico in 2007. In addition to the kits, ready-made 1/87th scale models were produced from 1989 to 1991 in the "Mini Exacts" series. The short-lived series included models of American and European sports cars (mostly contemporary, but also several classic cars) with plastic bodies and diecast chassis. Some models from the series (Buick Grand National, Chevrolet Corvette) were later reissued by Herpa with improved details and plastic baseplates.
