Sterling Stinson SR-8 Reliant Gullwing - 31 Inch Wingspan for R/C, 1/16, E8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Big scale kit with a 31 3/8 inch wingspan. Designed for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or detailed scale display. Features die cut quality balsa sheet parts and factory cut stringers and spars, die-cut plywood parts, fully formed wire landing gear struts, completely finished main and tail wheels & thrust button, hardware, control line parts, vacuform cowl/engine front, wheel pants and more, plastic prop, rubber motor, clear window material, covering tissue, large color decal sheet, superb plans and more. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed 'Sterling' clear bag. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and includes all 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 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 and more.
