Great Score of Goodies!

Post  Canso07 on Fri Aug 24, 2018 8:35 pm

Pretty good find for 20 bucks! Lots of different engines and kits that I didn't have. Fox 15 stunt new in the box plus another used, medallion 049 and 09, Testors 35 new, Taifun 1cc diesel, and a babe bee. The kits follow Sterling Ringmaster Bipe, Sterling Ringmaster Sportster, Aviomodelli Stuka, and a Graupner Filou sailplane. The stuka is interesting with the plastic fuselage halfs and balsa frame.

That is probably the best deal I have seen in a while. Good Job! That Sportster is a pretty rare kit. I have been looking for one just shy of forever.

You are a lucky dog!

Thanks Ron...yes best deal to date for me. I've been doing a little research on the sportster and yeah it's not a very common kit. I wonder how many Sterling produced.

Ooh Mommy!
Several individual items I would pay more than $20 for.
Haul of the decade. Nice going.

The Ringmaster Sportster has nice lines to it. The Sterling kit though is quite heavy. Pat King makes a very nice lightweight version. Unfortunately, your not buying his kit for $20. My friend Dennis built the prototype for Pat shown on the website. He then sent it to Pat who used it for a prize at a contest. The Ringmaster Flash Jr is another neat Sterling offering. Bob Clauss was chief designer/draftsman for Sterling for many years. Bob is a member of my club. Bob moved away a few months ago leaving us with many many unopened kits which were donated to the club. Many were auctioned off and several were used for prizes at our stunt contest in July of last year. His new residence didn't allow for the storage of all these kits. Bob could certainly answer the questions in terms of how many were produced. One of the kits that I thought was pretty cool was a Sterling F4-U Corsair signed on the box by Pappy Boyington . https://www.facebook.com/PhillyFliersCL/photos/a.605410626195742/1805593632844096/?type=3&theater

+1 on the above! Congrats! Just out of curiosity, were they offered to you for 20 bucks or were they advertised and you happened to be in the right place on the right time?

I have had a few things donated to me by kind fellow enthusiasts, and I also have bought ”piles of odds&ends” for cheap but this is something else!

yes they were advertised, I'm thinking a husband must of past away and the family didn't really know what to do with it. I had my daughter pick it up as I was busy, so didn't get to meet the lady.
