Sterling F4U-5 Corsair Launches Rockets in Flight - 24 inch Wingspan For Free Flight / R/C / Gas / Rubber / Electric - (F4U5), A14

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

This kit is part of Sterling's expensive big-wingspan series that was designed for action - it launches rockets in flight - and for R/C and also includes numerous extra parts for control line operation or free-flight. Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that 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, many light plastic detail parts, vacuformed plastic canopy, rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of decals, coving tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started. The small parts are still factory sealed in the "STERLING" bag, and the parts that were never sealed are inventoried complete with all paperwork and decals. NOTE: decals are 100% intact but have aged - they are slightly yellowed and wrinkled. 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 models.

Aurora Temco TT-1 Jet Trainer, 1/43, 139-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

NOTE: builder kit only. Please read carefully. Dated 1962. This is the nice ex-Strombecker kit after Aurora bought the molds when Strombecker closed down manufacturing. Molded in yellow and clear plastic. NOTE: the kit has some very neat assembly - wing halves are built and the seat halves are built. Quality of assembly is 'professional.' There is no other assembly. There is, however, some very light and fine sanding, pro rescribing of a few panel lines and some sinks are filled with primer - all very nicely done. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, the clear nose tip. Otherwise includes all other parts, instructions and decals. The box looks better than the 'poor' grade but is graded a such because a 7 inch section of the upper long box side is torn away and missing.

Aurora Aero Commander 680, 1/81, 285

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

Aurora of Holland issue. Still the only plastic kit of this venerable corporate workhorse. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: although all parts are present, one blade is broken off at a hub and that blade is missing. All other parts are fine. The box is very rough and has a long tear and missing litho on one long side. The Aero Commander was a state-of-the-art twin engine light transport from the early 1960s. It was built by Aero Design and Engineering Co. of Bethany, Oklahoma. It was the first twin engine aircraft to be used by the President of the United States and served in this capacity in the early 1960s. This high performance 5 to 7 place was popular with business travelers and had a range of 1,050 miles and a ceiling of 22,000 feet. The Aero Commander led to the Jet Commander, which became the IAI 1121 through 1124 Westwind business jets. Aero Commanders can still be seen at some airports in excellent condition, but many are neglected as newer aircraft are in favor.

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.
