A9-149 Sterling AT-6 Texan - 18 inch Wingspan for CL or Rubber - Landing Gear Operates in Flight
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
Excellent model designed rubber free flight or control line. Includes an innovative system for making the landing gear operate in flight. Features high-quality all die-cut balsa sheets of parts, factory-cut spars and strip wood, wood stock as required, a beautiful clear vacuform canopy (that is still like new with no yellowing), vacuform light-weight plastic gear well, cowl with motor, air scoop and pilot bust, plastic propeller and rubber moror, all metal hardware for the retracting gear, completely finished main gear and tail wheels, finished thrust button and other hardware, full color decals (in mint condition), covering tissue and excellent full size plans with instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed Sterling bag; that parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. 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 unique working features, color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, clear canopies, wire landing gear and excellent instructions.
