Sterling AT-6 Texan With Operating Landing Gear In Flight - 18 inch Wingspan, A9-149

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$65   

18 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for making the landing gear operate in flight. Stick and tissue model featuring quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, other wood stock as required, clear vacuform canopy (still in mint condition and not even yellowed), vac plastic details including gear well, pilot, cowl/engine & canopy, air scoop, finished wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor, plastic prop, covering tissue and a big full color decal sheet. Includes excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and inventoried complete. 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's offering to be 'deluxe' compared to other manufacturers.

Jetco Thermic 18 Glider - 13 inch Wingspan Hand-Launched

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$18   

From the late 1940s/early 1950s. This is a solid balsa wood glider with a 13 inch wingspan. When properly built and trimmed, they are incredible performers. In a small thermal they can quickly climb to 60-70 feet or more and be out of sight quickly. The kit has not been started. It is complete with all parts and plans. The plans are complete and can be used but are brittle. The box is very poor.

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.

Guillows Spitfire - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 504

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.
