18 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for making the landing gear operate in flight. The model has not been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one important part, clear vacuform canopy. The small parts are still sealed in the factory bag; the other parts that were not sealed are all present, except for the canopy. With plans and decals. 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.
