BMJR Models Miss America 1/2 - 48 Inch Wingspan, B-326

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$68   

Still factory sealed and retails new for $104. An excellent kit featuring traditional stick-and-tissue construction, laser cut wood parts, hardware, full size plans and instructions. The Miss America was originally designed by Fran Zaic in 1935 as a gas powered Free Flight model with an 84" wing span and later became a kit released by Scientific. In 1959 Joe Wagner and John Pond were discussing a new event for SAM competition: scaled down versions of 'Antique' gas models of the 1930's, to be powered with Cox .020 engines. From this, the 020 Replica event was spawned. For this event Joe designed the 1/2 size Miss America. The BMJR Miss America 1/2 has a wing loading of just over 8oz per ft. making it legal for SAM Texaco. The Miss America 1/2 may be powered with Texaco .049 or electric. With a 42 inch wingspan, she is perfect for the Texaco Speed 400 event. This design was later published in the 1961 Model Airplane News with electric power and R/C in an article by Bill Winter. The BMJR kit was developed from an original hand drawn plan from 1959 provide by Joe with permission to develop this kit. This model is true to the original with some subtle changes to the rudder, elevator, and structure for RC control and a simplified landing gear mounting. Flying weight of this model is 13.5 oz. with a 238 sq. inch wing area.

Inventoried 100% complete. Please NOTE there is light bug damage to the instructions but nothing serious. There is bug damage to the decal backing paper only (not the transfers). Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.
