Vintage Mark's Models Wanderer, 72" Sailplane kit.
Original kit. Complete, NIB, in excellent condition.
Wood is all in excellent condition. Die cutting of the ribs is superb.
Contains all original sales literature. If you built a Wanderer back in the day, opening this box will definitely transport you back in time.
Plans are somewhat creased and yellowed. I will include a new rolled plan to make building easy.

$54.99 + shipping

Thanks Alard, I had one as a boy. Many of us did I think.
Can't wait to build and fly it.

Thanks again, Rod.

Yes, it does! The same version as the Wanderer kit (my first glider) I purchased from Tower years ago. Recognize especially the ply fuse doublers on the plans that did not extend to include the wing aft hold down dowel. A friend had build his Wanderer before I bought mine but had managed to rip out the wing hold down dowels on a very hard landing :eek: and therefore in my Wanderer build I used the scrap ply from the kit to reinforce the fuselage where the aft dowel was located. Still have the Wanderer and flew it a few times several years ago.

Don't recall having the sheet with the assembly photos with my kit. The Wanderer box with its scrap and plans (had outlined the ribs in pencil) were stolen a few years ago with a bunch of much more valuable hobby items.

You'll have to wait a lot longer than 21 minutes for that!

Wanderer
 
I used to build these two-at-a-time to sell when I was home from college over the summer. Two kits and two rolls of Monokote would yield me two models with inverse color schemes; would have both finished in a week of evening building. Never had any trouble selling them on consignment at the Hobby Shop, and of course they always flew wonderfully...

Yeah,

I've got one on the shelf, as well and awhile back I piced up a Duralene fuse from Bob in Colo and he sent 2 1/2 kits in parts along with it. I was getting the fuse for a set of 2pc wings I picked up, locally.

Great flying plane :D

Duralene fuselage
 
Funny, this is supposed to be classified ad and people want to chime in about their Wanderer experience. Pretty cool.

I've always regretted that I didn't pick up a Duralene fuselage for the Wanderer when they were available.
Anyone know where I can get one?
