In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

In addition to the mysterious Orient, the Clippers stopped at exotic South Sea islands as well. Most had safe, long and distinguished service careers. The exception was the beautiful Hawaii Clipper. This Martin flying boat departed Alameda on a flight across the Pacific Ocean to Manila. Intermediate stops were made in Hawaii and Guam. The airplane departed Guam at 11:39 (18:30 CST). The last radio contact was at 22:03 CST saying that it was 565 miles from the Philippine coast, flying through layers of clouds and moderately rough air. The aircraft failed to arrive at Manila and a search was initiated.On 30 July, the Unites States Army transport ship USAT Meigs discovered an oil slick approximately 28 nautical miles (52 kilometers) south-southeast of the flying boat’s last reported position. The slick was described as being approximately 1,500 feet (457 meters) in circumference. No physical evidence of the Martin M-130 has ever been found. Search for the plane was called off on August 5, 1938. Fred Megow founded one of the very first national-wide (and world-wide) hobby empires during the 1930s Great Depression.
