1/16 E8 Sterling Stinson SR-8 Reliant Gull Wing - 31 inch Wingspan for R/C
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair++
Big scale kit with a 31 3/8 inch wingspan. Designed for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or non-flying detailed scale kit. Although the box has wear, the kit is like new inside. It has never been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag, and all parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. With 'excellent' condition decal and large, detailed plan set with 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 featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, 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.
