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 and very complete.

Micro Models The 1938 Twin Cyclone - 35 inch Wingspan Free Flight Gas Airplane, 3/5, F103

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$49   

From the 1970s. This is a quality reproduction of this classic flyer and is 3/5 the size of the original. Features full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started and is complete. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

Berkeley Super-Brigadier - 58 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft For R/C

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$175   

Very early radio control aircraft with a giant wingspan. In the free-flight roll, it meets the old Pan-American Airways Pay-Load Contest requirements for class A and B. Note the similarity in design to the early free-flight models - most early RC models had this appearance because of the stability required due to the difficult and unpredictable nature of early R/C control. Model features shaped and notched wing edges, die-cut plywood firewall, complete metal hardware, cut out windshield, superb full size plans with building instructions, rubber wheels, covering material and much more. Never started and complete. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
