Sterling Spitfire Mk.I Drops Bombs in Flight - 24 inch Wingspan for RC / Control Line / Freeflight, A19

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$59   

Still factory sealed. Larger scale for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. An excellent model featuring color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, rubber wheels, finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans/instructions and details on conversion to RC or control line. 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.

Fred Megow was a famous pioneer in the model aircraft field from the late 1920s and a very early manufacture for HO scale trains in the 1930s. His product lines of semi-prefabricated, solid and stick and tissue kits won him national and extensive world wide distribution - possibly the first modern model manufacture to achieve this. His fascinating story involves trying novel and untested marketing ideas in the Great Depression, followed my explosive world-wide growth. Mr. Megow was a true pioneer in the early days of modeling and a leader in the low price field so that every boy could afford a kit during those difficult times. Megow also produced scale operating train and trackside kits, ship models (large and small) and automotive subjects. Megow's catalogs claim that they were pioneers in HO scale, and there is documentation to support this fact. Megow's early HO train kits served not only to promote this now-popular scale nationally, but were among the very first train kits. Model train kits were responsible for the explosion in model railroad popularity in the late 1930s - please see the article in this website about these kits.
