1/6 FS1 Sterling Piper Tri-Pacer PA-22 - 58.75 Inch Wingspan for R/C - (Tripacer)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Late 1950s or early 1960s giant, full-scale kit designed for R/C. This model was actually made from factory plans provided by the Piper Aircraft Corporation and to this day is one of the most accurate, big-scale Tri-Pacer kits ever made. The model is part of Sterling's expensive big-wingspan series that was designed for R/C and also includes details for control line operation. Very nicely engineered and features the finest grade and density-selected balsa wood, sanded to micrometer tolerance and precision die-cut, die cut quality hard and plywood for high stress areas, stringers and spars, other wood stock as required, factory-sealed hardware kit, shaped and notched leading and training wing edges, covering material, fully formed thick plastic cowling, formed spring steel main landing gear struts, fully formed, shock absorbing (spring loaded) nose wheel strut, a very large & authentic decal sheet and easy to read step-by-step plans & instructions that cover all steps of assembly, radio, and even control line flying. Never started. All of the small parts are still sealed in the factory clear bags. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes all paperwork. 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 had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.
