Aluminum model airplanes were trending after WWII. The trend died out soon afterwards, but out of it came the Topping 100 CL model, manufactured and sold by Topping Models of OH beginning in 1945. Thanks to the generosity of Rev. Dr. Robert H. Secrist the museum has been able to add a Topping 100 to the collection. It looks like Rev. Secrist made some modifications to the model, as it has a glow engine installed, as well as a much later spinner and prop.
Thank you for helping to grow the museum’s collection!

I have a Topping 100 that was my grandfather’s.
