Megow Republic P-43, S-53

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare 1940s solid wood scale model features a 6" wingspan, balsa printwood, fuselage block, a factory-sealed envelope of small parts, color insignia sheet, detailed instructions and very nice plans. Never started and complete. Fred Megow founded one of the very first national-wide (and world-wide) hobby empires during the 1930s Great Depression. Megow Models became a giant manufacture and carried extensive lines of solid scale model, flying stick-and-tissue rubber or gas powered models, rolling stock & passenger equipment and even an extensive line of military and civil ships in all sizes. His autobiography is available and makes fascinating reading. Megow kits are very collectible today for their high quality and attractive box designs.

Ace Model Shop Sport Roadster, 1/24, 146

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Dated 1946. This well designed kit is primarily wood with plastic wheels and tires and with some metal details and other metal parts. Features main wood parts that are all cut to profile (cut in two dimensions) or die cut and other wood stock such as dowels and blocks. There are four excellent plastic one-piece wheels with tread and a small clear wax paper sack with some small metal parts (like a steering wheel, etc.). There are excellent instructions with detailed building text, full size three view drawings, photos of the assembly process and a very nice photo of the built model. Never started. The kit has been inventoried with all parts present, and the small parts bag is still factory sealed. The famous modeler Gordon A. Babb founded Ace in 1942. Mr. Babb was born in 1897 and became a well-known builder and competitor in the model field with aircraft and cars. National 'how to' hobby magazines often carried details articles about how to build his designs. In his first year in business, he sold 1,800 jeep kits. By 1952 the line had greatly expanded the line to hot rods, T-rods, midgets, roadsters and much more and he was expecting to sell 600,000 model kits. Mr. Babb was famous for inventing the first gas-powered midget racer model which sparked a nation-wide building spree and speed competition. His 'Ace Model Shop' was in Pasadena, California and the mailing address was 60 N. San Gabriel Blvd. Later the address was simply Ace Products, Pasadena 8, California. Most solid 'display' kit producers in the 1940s simply provided plans and blocks of wood, maybe with a few accessories. Ace went well beyond that with all cut-out parts, fully formed wheels and even some metal parts, occasionally small plastic details and sometimes even decals. The plans went well beyond the average also, featuring numerous views (not just three), detail views for sub-assemblies and even text instructions. There were at least 15 car kits in the line and also many military vehicles which were popular kits in World War 2. We don't know what happened to Ace 'Models Of Merit' but the introduction of plastic kits (started by the Highway Pioneers) put an end to most wood kit production.

Sanwa Lockheed C-130B Hercules, 1/205, PA1102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very Rare. Early, colorful issue from the late 1950s. The kit is dated by the 'Sanwa Plastic' logo, which was normally used in the late 1950s up to 1960. Very nicely detailed for that time with fine surface detail, optional 'closed' or 'open' rear dual cargo doors, moving ailerons, rotating props, optional opened or closed crew boarding stairs/door and colorful decals.

The decals are flat and 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only flaw and the instructions in 'near mint' condition. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.
