SCALE MODEL AIRPLANE KITS C/L

Kit# C-2 Howard's "PETE"

The "C" Series is one of Sterling's oldest.  There were 13 scale models in this series most designed for C/L flying with B and C (.19 - .35) engines.  Some of these models were produced for only a short period of time during the 1950s.  These include the Howard Pete (Kit# C-2), Polish fighter (# C-5), and the Ryan S-T (# C-7).  The Grumman Guardian (# C-11) was introduced in the 1960s as was the Stearman PT-17 (# C-12) and the Great Lakes Trainer (# C-13) was brought out in the 1970s.  By 1995, only these last two kits were still being kitted.  These kits make beautiful scale models for flying or display.  This is a highly sought out series for the serious collector and builder.
