Sterling Fokker E-III Eindecker - 25 inch Wingspan for R/C / Free Flight / Control Line, A23

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$59   

Big kit for RC, free flight or control line. This model includes a very large decal sheets, die cut balsa sheets, pre-cut strip wood, vacuform cowl, engine, machine gun, pilot and other parts, rubber tires with completely precarved wooden wheel hubs, preformed landing gear strut wires, hardware, tissue, rubber motor and prop. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. 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 featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

His product lines of semi-prefabricated, solid and stick and tissue kits won him national and extensive world wide distribution - possibly the first modern model manufacture to achieve this. His fascinating story involves trying novel and untested marketing ideas in the Great Depression, followed my explosive world-wide growth. Mr. Megow was a true pioneer in the early days of modeling and a leader in the low price field so that every boy could afford a kit during those difficult times. Megow also produced scale operating train and trackside kits, ship models (large and small) and automotive subjects.

Megow's early HO train kits served not only to promote this now-popular scale nationally, but were among the very first train kits.
