Post in this thread your intent to purchase the item and PM me your information.

I would like trouble free mature buyers, not tire kickers, if you can afford the hobby you understand this.

I spend the bulk of my day searching for work and applying and writing cover letters, understand that is my priority as my job is finding a job and staying healthy.

Thanks for your interest and support.

Good luck with the job search! I was in that position a little over a year ago, and I know how stressful it is.

The AkroMaster is a sealed kit
The Top Flite and Sterling have been opened and have some shelf wear on the boxes. The Top Flite kit having more wear because of the printed finish type and having traveled across the country a few times in moves...

Top Flite Baby Flite Streak is designed for the Cox 049 radial mount, not the original George Aldritch design with beam mounts

The Sterling Beginners Ringmaster Bipe is also setup for the Cox Radial Mount motors as well.
The Beginner's Ringmaster Biplane kit has the plastic radial mount firewall that was common with 049 profile balsa kits.
Most modelers have the skills to convert to beam mount design if they intend to put a Cox TD/Medallion or a Brodak CL / Norvel / McCoy / etc. beam mount design engine on the kit.
