The Megow's Philadelphia Models was named after its founder Fred W. Megow. Megow saw the growth of the aviation industry and began experimenting with model airplanes in the late 1920s. In 1929, he founded "Megow's Model Airplane Shop" which was one of the earliest companies to produce and sell airplane modeling kits. The business ceased operation in 1949.
