A18 Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 - Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 Inch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Flying Aircraft - (SVA-5)
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
19 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and 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.
