Megow Corben Ace - 24 inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Model, C-6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

I located this kit in the 1938 Megow catalog, so it is from near that year. Part of the famous 24 inch wingspan series of kits which were 25 cents each. Features print wood, pre-cut stringers, spars, wood stock, preformed wheels, very nicely pre-carved wooden propeller blank (needs sanding to complete), tissue paper and full size plans. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including plans. Fred Megow was a famous pioneer in the model aircraft field from the late 1920s and a very early manufacture for HO scale trains in the 1930s. 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.

12 Squared F-4X(S)-HIAC Phantom II Reconnissance Conversion (F-4E(S)), 1/72, 2-1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Limited run injection molded conversion in white and clear plastic. Includes all parts needed for the conversion including the camera which can be mounted inside the nose or on provided display stands. Uses the Hasegawa F-4E (or other 1/72 F-4E kits) to build one of the three Israeli F-4E(S) aircraft. In the 1960s General Dynamics developed the RB-57F that held the 66 inch focal length HIAC-1 Camera. This amazing camera got smaller with time, and by the early 1970s the Israeli Air Force expressed an interest in having the HIAC mounted in an F-4 Phantom II. Originally mounted in a 22 foot pod, by 1974 the camera had been integrated into the F-4 Fuselage. Originally the F-4X was to have Mach 3.2 capability, but the US Air Force dropped it's support with the F-15 coming on line soon. The IAF completed the project, but only the HIAC nose version, designated F-4E(S) which this kit represents.
