Lil Tri Squire & Rudder Bird

A little trivia, looks like E-Bay has been good to Penn Valley
Hobby Center. Following nostalgia aircraft went for more than
I thought they would:

Sterling RC RUDDER BIRD balsa Model Airplane Kit - $132.75

Midwest RC LIL TRI SQUIRE balsa Airplane Kit - $112.75

http://tinyurl.com/cs8l7

I remember those kits from old AHC catalogs back in the late
'60s, early '70s. The Tri Squire is a 40" span 1/2-A kit, the
Rudder Bird was a semi-Goldberg Falcon resemblance plane of
around a 50" span. Both must have been less than $12 back
then. (I remember the Scientific C/L 1/2-A kits back in the
mid '60s went for a buck (USD) to about double that for their
deluxe kits in the Keesler AAFES Hobby Shop.)
