Anyone ever heard of it?

It doesn't really appeal to me, but I know where I can get a kit for a good price. It says it can be made to work for FF/CL/RC. .020-.099 size so perfect for our engines.

There is one on the bay going for over $60 with two days left 20 bids........

Maybe I should have bought it! lol!

Sig certainly had some interesting kits in the inventory back in the day. Sadly, most have been discontinued. Whenever you see these combo kits for free flight or control line, they usually take a slight bit of redesigning. Sig made a neat little control line plane which I just completed from a kit that had 75% of the parts missing. It was known as the Sig Kricket. The kit came with a foam wing and was a built up fuse. Unfortunately, it doesn't fly as good as it looks. I'm going to cut a slightly larger foam wing for it and try again. The neat thing with this plane is that the wing just plugs into the fuse so digging out the old one should be a snap. The bellcrank is located above the wing so nothing interferes with the wing itself. A neat plane if someone comes across it. Rebuilding a new wing in balsa would even be simple. Ken

Hey Ron,
Somewhere, in my pile of kits, I've got a Sterling "Diamant" sailplane kit...pretty similar to Sig's sailplane. It was a Swap-Meet Orphan I got for ten bucks a decade or so ago. It's complete except for it's canopy (I think), and I'll shoot it to you for $15 total if you think you might want it as a project.

I'll dig it out and check to be sure about it's parts count and send photos. As Ken said though, like a lot of these old kits, it'll need some changes for any serious attempt at making it fly. This kit (I believe) has plug-in wings which I don't think would take much abuse. I'd intended to build it with a wing-saddle type of set-up, but doubt I'll get to it.

Googled it and it looks kind of like a Fournier.

Real long running build thread on RCG of a larger version: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=275084 Mentions the Sig kit was basically a rebranding of a Berkeley kit, so it has some historical roots, for sure.
