Maircraft Curtiss Goshawk - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size 3-view plans with instructions steps and templates, 2D cut fuselage and wings, other wooden parts, and a factory sealed envelope of small parts. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

MPM Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan - (M6A1K), 1/72, CZ004

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$29   

Early in the development of the Seiran submarine based float plane, two preproduction airframes emerged with retractable landing gear for land operation. These were likely the 5th and 6th prototypes and they had dual controls. They were given the 'K' designation for trainer. They could also be operated from the submarines as they had the same catapult attachment. Training may have taken place from land or taking off from the sub then landing on an airstrip. It is interesting that the original Seiran concept did not call for floats as the aircraft would launch from the submarine catapult and crash-land beside the submarine when the mission was over. This limited edition model kit features fine recessed panel line detail and decals for both aircraft. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

$29   

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.

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.
