A27 Sterling 2-32 Schweizer Sailplane - 42.75 Inch Wingspan For Tow Line or R/C
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Purchased new in 1970 Cleveland, OH. Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue glider than is designed for tow line or radio control. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, a perfect-condition clear vac canopy, factory-finished hard-wood nose cone, finished wheel, a large, full color decal sheet that includes full side strips as shown, coving tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and complete. 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' as they had the action features and were much nicer than most other kits of this type.
