Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$85   

Builder kit only - please read carefully. Classic large 13.5 inch wingspan kit. Made of solid Western Pine - not balsa. Builds up to an impressive display model. Kit includes fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder and nacelles all cut to shape, Casein Glue mix, sandpaper, and a parts bag with completely formed propellers. Large full color Pan Am decal sheet. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing stand wire. Stand base is included. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: box is complete but heavily stained, especially the left short side. Decals are intact but water damaged; please see the article on this website about saving old decals. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only sanding would finish them.

Sterling L-19 Bird Dog - 17 inch Wingspan CL/Rubber Powered Kit that Drops Leaflets in Flight, A12-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$65   

Still factory sealed. 17 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for dropping leaflets in flight. Sterling was a famous manufacture 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, clear vacuform canopy, preformed wheels, finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to control line.
