Default VECO, Midwest C/L Kits Available!

Some of the "Old Timers" will remember the VECO line from the 1950's and '60's. These were U-Control, Free Flight and a few R/C models, balsa kits with colorful names like Chief, Tom Tom, Apache, Warrior, Sioux and of course Bob Palmer's famous Thunderbird.
Well, some of the control-line models are being kitted again, by Larry Richards, from Sparks, Nevada;

As well as models from Midwest, several of the profile U-Control designs.
And to give our newer (younger) modelers an idea of what these planes looked like, here are photos of an ad page from the March 1958 Model Airplane News (0.35 cents per copy!) in glorious black + white.
Enjoy!
