Megow Contest Commercial - 36 inch Wingspan Cabin Style N.A.A. Class 'C' Flying Model Airplane, J-16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$75   

From 1940. Part of the AYA 'Air Youth of America' series of aircraft. Kit features 36 inch wingspan and 25 inch long fuselage, full size plans, print and strip balsa wood, nose block, covering material and a very nice pre-carved propeller blank (final finishing required). The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete. Fred Megow was a famous pioneer in the model aircraft field from the late 1920s till 1949. His product lines of semi-prefabricated, solid and stick and tissue kits won him national and extensive world wide distribution - possibly the first modern model manufacture to achieve this. His fascinating story involves trying novel and untested marketing ideas in the Great Depression, followed my explosive world-wide growth. Mr. Megow was a true pioneer in the early days of modeling and a leader in the low price field so that every boy could afford a kit during those difficult times. Megow also produced scale operating train and trackside kits, ship models (large and small) and automotive subjects. Megow's catalogs claim that they were pioneers in HO scale, and there is documentation to support this fact. Megow's early HO train kits served not only to promote this now-popular scale nationally, but were among the very first train kits. Model train kits were responsible for the explosion in model railroad popularity in the late 1930s - please see the article in this website about these kits.
