Veron Velox Kit on - Airplanes and RocketsMuch more so in the pre-Internet days than today, obtaining or even knowing about model airplane products in foreign countries was difficult. Unless an aircraft modeling magazine, of which there might have been three or four in 1960, happened to report on something like this Velox kit from Veron, in the UK, there was almost no way most hobbyists would ever learn of it. My guess is that most model magazines published in foreign lands were brought back to the U.S. in the duffle bags of military members and their families. Velox models have recently sold on eBay for more than $100, and there is a fairly extensive Velox thread on the forum.
