Megow 1941 Megow Catalog Number 11 1941 - 128 Pages

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare. 1941 Megow catalog originally from Potter's Hardware in Thomaston, Conn. Very thick 128 page catalog from the 'Golden Age' of model building includes the full Megow gas, rubber and static scale aircraft line, a special about a Model Airplane show featuring Megow personnel on television station W3XE (perhaps the very first modeling show in TV), an article on the 'Story Behind Megow Balsa Wood', model aircraft dope with a Megow Store Display, Megow's Quick Dry Cement, die-cast parts and fittings for super-detailing static solid models, pages supplies for flying models, the Strombecker wooden kits line (distributed by Megow), American Junior (A-J) Line, Fireball U-Control, Gas Powered Models, gas motors, timers, knives, props, gas flying accessories, gas car models, Megow's extensive line of ship models and fittings, Megow's historical and large line of O and HO Gauge kits and accessories, and advertising showing the famous Megow 'Green Cabinet' and door decal for hobby dealers to display. The catalog is complete and has not been written in. There is general wear on the cover and some clear tape. Page one has a tear but no material is missing. The other pages are free of tears. 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 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.
