Default Kap-Pak

I come upon little baggies of parts by Kap-Pak every so often in their blue label. All I have found so far is things pertaining to like 1/2A controlline models.

I used to buy Perfect items off the pegs, so had little opening to their products.

Did Kap-Pak make bigger parts or have a bigger variety?

Yes they had a factory in Chicago, that made all kind of airplane, train and car parts for Models. The origins of their company were Comet Models. –I have some fond memories of this place. My grandfatherLouise Kapp was one of the founding members of Comet and later started his own business with is two sons Arnold &Mort KAP-PAK

My cousin made a great DVD about Comet (The Comet Model News) you may want to check it out

Well, thank you for that. Brings back memories for myself also. I actually can say, and with all honesty, I've built many Comet kits.

Bill,

Thank you so much for this posting.

It sure brings back the souvenirs of our activities in the mid 1950s.
They were quite similar to what we see in these movies.

Your post sure made my day .

I have myself, in the past, posted pictures of the kind of radios that the K8IDF is showing.
We had to build our own radios in those years and of course many home designed and built models.

A million thanks.

Zor

When I started building modelairplanes, in the 1950s, the hobby shop's Kap-Pak display rack wasthe place to search for hard-to-find parts...those little fiddly bitsthat were impossible to find at the hardware store. I still have afew unopened hardware packs and unused, tin fuel tanks. I treat themas souvenirs that bring back fond memories. For almost 70 years I'vewondered about the folks who brought us Kap-Paks...now I know.Thanks!
