Sterling Rearwin Speedster with 'Auto-Magic' Pilot - 22.5 inch Wingspan For Control Line or Free Flight, M-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Mid 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model with special 'Auto Magic Pilot' feature and 22.5 inch wingspan. Can be built for scale static display, rubber free-flight or gas powered control line or Auto Magic Pilot, where the aircraft flies by itself on a tether and maintains level flight. Features full size plans, many sheets of die-cut balsa wood parts, main spars, stringers, tissue, completely formed and painted wooden wheels, die-cut plywood parts, clear window material, vacuformed nose cowl and wheel pants, steel pre-shaped landing gear struts and decals. Full size plans are included that also include highly detailed text instructions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts including decals and instructions. 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.
