A5-298 Sterling Nieuport 17 - 24 inch Wingspan for RC - Launches Rockets in Flight
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
24 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically firing wing rockets in flight. 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 occured in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, clear vacuform canopy, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
