Megow SS Rex (1931) Italian Ocean Liner (Italia Flotta Riunite -Italian Line), 1/700

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare. From 1934, which was during the heyday of the Rex when she flew the Blue Riband as the Queen of the Atlantic liners. The kit features many printwood sheets, wood stock as needed, sealed metal parts in a small envelope, two glass bottles of Megow paint (with Megow logos in the glass and on the lids), unopened Megow cement, sandpaper and full size plans with instructions, profiles, rigging details and cut outs for promenade and fore superstructure windows. Measures 15 inches in length when assembled. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete. The Rex was an especially beautiful ship, and all kits of here were produced in the 1930s, making them treasured today. 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.

Still factory sealed, but the seal has splits. Close to 1/144 scale. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong.

Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.
