Back then, most kit manufacturers included a small un-marked tube of glue in the kits.  Probably was Ambroid, at least that was what I had in the first kits I built in the early '50s (included a few red/yellow box Comets and all the Megow's).  The Strombeckers had a really stinky horse hoof based goop that my Mom wouldn't let me use in the house (not even in the basement) - Ambroid or Duco was OK.

Terry, is correct that Ambroid was in use along with Elmers.

I tried to research what glues were available for this time frame but didnt have alot of luck.


Ambroid may have been used for model building, has been around since 1900.  Not very common now, my last tube is empty though I do like using it.

I have been thinking about this Ace Whitman plan for some time.

After going through my flash drives for the Ace Whitman plan, I ran across many many more plans I like. Here are a couple more that hold my interest.

I could not post Comets Red Demon Racer, the file size is too large. So here is the outerzone link.

I think that I would favor the Joe Ott 1938 Cub. Simple construction. I might even have some wood from some old kits that would qualify as being from that era (ha ha).

CD--  If you have a Dollar General they have T-pins and the ones with ball ends for 1.00 a pack. While you are there grab
a empty cardboard box and you are all set for a building surface. Think the box should get you through 1 build.
Big-- I think any production kit from 1935-1945 and/or any plan that was a magazine supplied supplement. Monday I plan on seeing what a few suppliers can do for a group buy on print wood kits, either full or short kits. If the newer guys
and girls are reading this dont be afraid to join in.

Now! I am interested, have you set up the criteria? Such as
1. 1935-1945
2.
3.

It sounds pretty interesting - all except the "no magnets" part. I have very few pins and nothing to stick 'em in. Still may  build along (on a separate thread). Should be fun! Smiley

Gunny, do you have a time frame of what airplanes would be allowed?

Plans might be a financial way only for some Jim. But remember you cant use any PC generated parts stickers. Tracing paper would be the obvious choice for that time frame and/or cutting up the plans.Or the pin prick method... Shocked
