I well remember these things Horrid little things that they were.
I would suppose not many have survived and those that did my be worth something one day
I really tried to fly that horrid little thing but it only went up and crashed to the ground several times.
Think maybe just for kicks and giggles I wil buy that one on the ever popular site.

Don't know if it is this or another: [link=http://www.ebay.com/itm/181120692913]E-Bay - Athearn Convair POGO C/L VTOL.....w/box[/link]

These are collector items and somewhat pricey. I'd think it would be neat for someone to model one of sufficient size to mimic the motions of the Bi-Slob CL "3D" bipe. That would be kind of fun, actually. Launch in VTO mode, hover, engage in horizontal flight, loop, back to vertical hover, etc.

The Pogo is extremely rare- high $ too. There are plans about for balsa versions- also one or two non-Scale VTOL types like the VeeTo that was in MAN in the 1950's.
