Default Sterling Ringmaster Sportster

The Ringmaster Sportster was the relatively unknown member of the Ringmaster family. It and the Ringmaster flash really didn't look a lot like the classic Ringmaster s-1 that is so well known. However , this Sterling model while probably not one of the largest selling members of the Rinmaster line still commands hefty prices when offered on the bay. Pat King undertook the preservation of this design and redrew the plans and has produced a limited number of short kits. This is the kit prototype. There is more about it on the Ringmaster forum. It is unusual in that it is one of the few side mounted full fuselage models in C/L.

Very nice. Pat drew some plans for a multi-engined Scale project and sent them to me to build. He is a very good draftsman and I can't wait to build it. Bob Whitely's F-82 Twin Mustang 1/2A Scale model was designed by Pat as well.
Isn't the Ringmaster Sportser a tricycle geared model? I always thought they were very cool and with that canopy reminded me of the Navion sport plane.

Where is the Ringmaster forum? Are you referring to Stuka Stuntworks or is there another forum for the Ringmaster?
