Default control line wingmaster???

Anyone ever heard of a control line kit called a Wingmaster? Probably from the early to mid eighties-just curious as to what it looks like, specs, etc-a person I work with says he has a new in box kit he'll give me if he can find it. Wondering if it can be converted to rc easily. Any pics or comments, please let me know! Thanks, Mike.

Mike:

I think your friend at work is talking about the Ringmaster. I built
my first one about 1957. It was in a series of planes by Sterling.
Some of the others were the Circus King,Circus Clown and Lion
Tamer. The standard size had like a 40/42" span and up till a few
years ago, Tower offered a Jr. Ringmaster.
The planes are a profile fuse like the Sig Fazer, but the wings are
not as thick as the fun-fly to allow the radio gear to fit as easily.
The next problem is that the outboard wing is about 4" longer than the inboard. No big deal to change that though.
The engine mount is just like the Fazer, with the tank strapped to
the side. My first plane flew with a McCoy 35 Red Head which cost
$4.99 new and the kit was like $6.50 This plane is the reason why I got into RC because I got tired of falling down from getting
dizzy
Hope this helps you,
Randy
