Yunyj Tyechinik Yakovlev Yak-18 - Light Acrobatic Aircraft, 1/40

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$36   

This kit is still in the heat sealed old plastic bag, which has preserved the delicate box very nicely. Classic Cold War kit in large 1/40 scale. I believe this is a 'Yunyj Tyechinik' release and not the earlier MZMPI. This company succeeded MZMPI (which was the first kit manufacture in the USSR) and continued till a new name was introduced in the mid 1970s.

Megow 1941 Megow Catalog Number 11 1941 - 128 Pages

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$35   

Rare. 1941 Megow catalog originally from Potter's Hardware in Thomaston, Conn. Very thick 128 page catalog from the 'Golden Age' of model building includes the full Megow gas, rubber and static scale aircraft line, a special about a Model Airplane show featuring Megow personnel on television station W3XE (perhaps the very first modeling show in TV), an article on the 'Story Behind Megow Balsa Wood', model aircraft dope with a Megow Store Display, Megow's Quick Dry Cement, die-cast parts and fittings for super-detailing static solid models, pages supplies for flying models, the Strombecker wooden kits line (distributed by Megow), American Junior (A-J) Line, Fireball U-Control, Gas Powered Models, gas motors, timers, knives, props, gas flying accessories, gas car models, Megow's extensive line of ship models and fittings, Megow's historical and large line of O and HO Gauge kits and accessories, and advertising showing the famous Megow 'Green Cabinet' and door decal for hobby dealers to display. The catalog is complete and has not been written in. There is general wear on the cover and some clear tape. Page one has a tear but no material is missing. The other pages are free of tears. 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.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$45   

Still factory sealed but the seal and box have wear as shown. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.
