Wanted Wanted : Anybody got a "Sleek Streek"?

Post  Kim Tue Jan 25, 2022 10:12 am

Just wondering if anyone has a North Pacific "Sleek Streek" or "Star Flyer" rubber band model they'd be willing to part with (Collector Alert:  I intend to fly it!)...OR...maybe be willing to do an outline tracing of the wing and tail feathers with dimensions of the stick fuselage?

I've got some photos copped from old Ebay listings that might be used to make parts, but it'd be REALLY nice to just have a straight tracing to go from.

Anyway, thanks for any assistance!

i could not understand what this plane was, and how it differed from the guillows ROG kits.

Levant's post showed some pretty graphics. It's cool, but very similar to any of the kits made in the 50s-70s that all looked like? the ROG Guillows now, that so many of us played with

Most of the guillows? assembled from same basic parts. the tails are all the same, the wings, etc, just different printing.

SO! assuming you want wheels and the full ROG experience?
the JetStream and Captain Storm are both super similar and available direct
https://www.guillow.com/BalsaToyAirplanes.aspx

as mentioned earlier - the SkyStreak is good, but no wheels

If you bought any of em, then traced, then cutout? you could use Levant's file to print one up as the graphics you desired (childhood memories - I totes get it)

I'd pretty much written off the now $5 planes - till Oddly, I saw and AMA video on how to hot rod them, and make em tether fliers. its kinda cool. and yes, I did this in the back yard

good luck
AND if ANY of ya come across a new Phantom 70? I'll buy it from ya (cat-launched, folding wings, not in production)
