Biography  
Richard Kishady


Richard Kishady was an illustrator for Revell Model Kits, especially airplanes and automobiles.

Born in Hungary, he fought in World War II with the Hungarian Air Corps and spent some time near the end of the war in a POW camp. After the war he traveled to Munich, Germany where he studied at the Academy of Fine Art, painting the walls of the school to pay for his tuition.

He immigrated to the United States under sponsorship of an American Church group. Kishady first found work painting brochures for the big three automakers, but lured by the climate he moved to Southern California and found work with the Revell Company.
