Maybe it is because my first R/C model airplane was a 1/2A Skylane, but I
have always have a great admiration for
Carl Goldberg, whose eponymously named company manufactured the kit.
Sadly, both the man and his company are gone now. Mr. Goldberg, whose
biology can be found on the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) website,
aptly summarizes his contributions in the following statement, " 'Mr.
Modeling,' title given by American Modeler magazine, hailed by
expert builders and beginners alike as 'Expert Designer.' Carl is typical of
the many designers who have come to the top from the rank of model builders
and flyers and herein represents a host of individuals with similar
talents." Having previously won a few competitions and owned a hobby shop,
Carl began his design career working for Comet Model Company and then went
on to co-found Top Flite Models, whose propellers he promotes in this
advertisement from a 1951 issue of Air Trails magazine.
