Has markings for the very colorful box art aircraft which is from the famous Vienna Air Raid of WWI. The SVA-5 was a highly successful Italian WWI design that saw service up to 1929.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Purchased new on March 31, 1966 at Hobbyville in Cleveland, OH. Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that drops the centerline bomb in flight. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic engine cowl, exhaust manifolds, bomb, spinner and wheel pant, beautiful clear vacuformed one-piece canopy (still mint not yellowed), rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of full color decals, coving tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and complete. 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 had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.
