Carl Goldberg Models Spirit of St. Louis / Ryan NYP - 21 Inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Aircraft, D1-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

Purchased new on December 16, 1966 from Barns Hobby in Cleveland, Ohio. Quality scale rubber-powered flying model with stick and tissue construction. Highly prefabricated balsa kit that does not use tissue covering. Features all die-cut wings, fuselage sides, formers, tail surfaces and more, vacuform engine, finished wheels, plastic prop, thrust button and spinner, metal hardware and prop shaft, rubber motor, full decals and superb plans with excellent instructions. Never started and inventoried complete. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.

$70   

Very high quality, scale kit designed for R/C, rubber power, gas or CO2, control line or non-flying super detail scale. Features quality die-cut balsa printwood and stripwood, diecut plywood, numerous crisp vacuform parts such as exhaust manifolds, spinner radiator and much more, clear vacuform canopy in 'mint' condition, light-weight plastic wheels and prop, hardware, rubber motor, fully formed wire landing gear, complete full color decals, covering tissue, superb full size plans that include building and flying instructions and conversion details for R/C and other forms of flight. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed Sterling bag while the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with a paperwork. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they were very complete.
