250 North Pacific Sleek Streek Rubber Band Powered Flying Aircraft - Bagged
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed
Rare. Still factory sealed. The renown Sleek Streek was North Pacific's best rubber band balsa flyer, and arguably the best flyer of any of the readily available aircraft by Guillow's or other makes. The main reason was that Sleek Streak was not only well designed, but light. The Guillow's competition was simply too heavy, and the North Pacific Star Flyer (a bigger model) was a bit heavy also (for the power). The performance was so legendary for this category that Sleek Streeks were modified and regularly recorded flights of over one minute and much more. There is even a famous article about how to modify this aircraft for that performance! When I was growing up I didn't have the article (or even the skill if I did), so I would remove the landing gear and shave off a little here and there - even this provided flights that were memorable to this day.
