Stardust 049 aerobatic

Back in the early eighties, I acquired a kit for a low wing half A aerobatic plane, by the name of Stardust. Weirdly, I hung the completed model with TD motor against the window for about a decade with the coastal air eventually damaging it and it never took to the air.

I think it was called Stardust - unfortunately Google only comes up with free flights and bipes of the same name and nothing of this dinky little model. If I can locate some pics I would like to draw up an build an electric version. It looked not unlike (but better) than some of the other low wing aerobatic half A models of the 70's era.

Anyone with a memory of same and maybe a pic somewhere?

Cheers
Dave

Do you remember who made the kit and what year it came out?

That is the Stardust 1/2A model kitted by Pilot, built one so many years ago with a TD049 but my abilities were not up to the what the model could do. pity that there are no plans available. A very attractive model that would do well if electrified.
