FREE to good home VINTAGE Balsa Kit "Circus Prince" - Control Line Stunt/Combat

Not sure what year, but it's called a "Circus Prince" from P.D.Q. Products. Original owner says 50's or very early 60's at the latest. Never built kit with balsa/ply. I'll try to get a picture. Not even sure what to ask for it, so best offer would be fine. Balsa has signs of oxidation spots, but appears to be fine.

From the box:

27" span
class AB
100% AAA balsa
Tough Plywood
Formed Wire Gear
Hardwood Motor Mounts
Detailed, Easy to Follow Plans (plans are included and in perfect condition)
Sprightly Decal (that one cracks me up)
2 piece fuselage for easiest, most accurate, and strongest wing mounting.

P.D.Q. Products Co. Millville, N.J.

Did a search and for what it is worth this plane is still made new and can be bought for about $41 plus shipping.

Got it. How times have changed. On the box it says $1.95. Can you imagine anyone selling a plane kit for a buck ninety-five?

Free to a good home.

I'll send it to anyone who wants it, as long as you cover shipping.

WOW I thought about offering $20 shipped but figured that was too low. If you want to do something like this and stealthy doesn't take it I'll do that. At least that would give you something to pay shipping for.

Hey John,

Nah. I was debating but I don't have a motor in this size. Better that I didn't get it really. Cheers all
