Comet Sopwith Camel Super Stars Series - 32 inch Wingspan R/C Flying Aircraft, 1/12, 3647

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Rare and from the early to mid 1970s. Big 1/12 scale model is designed for R/C operation, gas .020 or .049 control line/free flight and rubber powered - or even as a detailed static display model. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also. This is a very nice and well detailed model for that time featuring 'Tube-O-Matic' fuselage construction, 'Rugged Super X Simplified Non-Warping Wing' light-weight plastic nose cowl, radial engine, engine exhaust, pilot bust, machine guns, scale prop and more, completely formed metal gear struts and upper wing center struts, finished wheels and nose button, plywood firewall, all die-cut balsawood, factory-cut stripwood and leading & trailing wing edges, covering tissue, very colorful, large and comprehensive insignia sheet, detailed full size plans with building instructions and more. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

The model has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The parts that were never sealed havc been inventoried complete. NOTE: The decals have been neatly adult cut into three sections. All transfers are in perfect condition. NOTE: one die cut parts sheet was factory cut 'off square', resulting in a 1/4" too much material along the bottom and 1/4" too short at the top. Several top parts are affected by this; but there is a 2nd sheet (two are required) so any compromised parts can be easily made. 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.

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 were much nicer than most other kits of this type.
