Just a kind of reminder for people looking for old plans, the AMA Plans library has purchased a NUMBER of older sources, and has most of those available. In fact, a few years ago, I DId get a set of plans for the Sterling Fledgeling, for which I happen to have an old Wings foam core.

Just thinking this over, and I seem to recall an article on Sterling back in an American Modeler magazine, or one of the other Air Trails antecedents, that Sterling got a lot of their balsa from a factory that made life rafts for the Navy. He got the rejects, that kind of explains a lot of the almost oak hard heavy balsa wood their kits had. And maybe some of the splintery 3-ply plywood. BTW, I STILL have around 30 Sterling-Sterling Estes flyables and kits! Many of the later kits actually had some decent balsa and die cutting!
