Sterling Spitfire Mk.I Drops Bombs in Flight - 24 inch Wingspan for RC / Control Line / Freeflight, A19

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Larger scale for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. An excellent model featuring color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, rubber wheels, finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans/instructions and details on conversion to RC or control line. 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.
