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.

These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. 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.
