MPC and AMT/Ertl
( out of produktion )

The first pages of MPC 1978 catalog announced the company's new line of kits. MPC proudly announces the first introductions of a superb new kit series based on the epic film, STAR WARS; the copy read.
"Everything possible has been done to execute this series in a manner consistent with the quality of this remarkable film"

The first Star Wars model kits were made by MPC (Model Products Corporation), which was part of the General Mills Fun Group.
The company was later purchased by Ertl (1985) and its name was changed to MPC/Ertl and later acquisition to AMT/Ertl. And now
the series would become one of the largest catalogs of licensed kits in the history of plastic models.

I only take up the US kits here, many of the MPC kits were released in different countries and from company's like, Airfix, Meccano, Kenner, Denys Fisher, Revell-Takara, Clipper.
