Monogram De Havilland L-20 Beaver Bild'n Fly Series - 21 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 1/28, F2-149

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare. 1960 issue from the large 'Bild'n Fly' series. This series was Monogram's most elaborate, colorful and realistic flying models. It was short-lived however, as by 1960 non-flying plastic kits had become the #1 hobby of boys in the USA. The Bild'n Fly series included simplified assembly - no ribs or stringers. All balsa parts are color laminated and die cut - no tissue covering and all decoration is built in full color. There are 14 highly detailed plastic parts such as cowl, wheels, prop, oil cooler, etc. The windows are clear. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Includes metal gearbox with nylon gears, factory-wired switch, motorizing hardware and final drive on the sprocket wheels. The tank features individual treads, opening hatches and more. Most versions of this model included the electric motors; but since it is factory sealed, I cannot be certain.

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 manufacturer 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.

Monogram The Black Knight - (ex Aurora), 1/8, 85-6523

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Ideal builder model is the 2010 reissue from the original 1950s Aurora molds (originally obtained from Crown). This kit is the same scale as the other Aurora Knights. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued. When Aurora went out of business in 1976, they sold the molds to Monogram. However, Monogram did not release the Knights until well after Revell and Monogram merged.

Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling's offering to be 'deluxe' compared to other manufacturers.
