Sterling Great Lakes Trainer - 36 inch Wingspan Flying Model, C13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Superb kit from the 1960s or early 70s. Designed for control line flight with .19 to .35 engines. Features die-cut and inter-notched balsa and plywood parts, shaped and notched leading and trailing edges, hardwood motor mounts, formed wire landing gear, molded plastic cowling, hardware pack, silk-span covering, authentic decals, extensive full size plans and more. The kit has never been started. The smaller parts are still in factory sealed bags; the parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and includes 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 personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.

After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.

Maircraft Taylorcraft - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut, profile cut parts, printwood and a small bag of details. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
