The model has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The parts that were never sealed havc been inventoried complete. NOTE: The decals have been neatly adult cut into three sections. All transfers are in perfect condition. NOTE: one die cut parts sheet was factory cut 'off square', resulting in a 1/4" too much material along the bottom and 1/4" too short at the top. Several top parts are affected by this; but there is a 2nd sheet (two are required) so any compromised parts can be easily made. 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.
