1/4 Quarter Midget Pylon Racer
Vintage RC Airplane Minnow by SIG 39" span. Kit in terrific condition.
Believe this dates back into the 1970s. 1/4 Quarter Midget Pylon was a class of r/c racers back then (as you may know).
Preformed plastic fuselage and cowling, foam wings and plastic covering, balsa tail section and balsa fuse backbone frame along with other balsa and plywood parts. Terrific detailed 12 page instruction and flying booklet (8 1/2 x 11" format so not a teensie tome).
Includes much hardware including engine mount, hinges, linkage hardware, prebent wire landing gear etc etc.
Kit is pretty complete as far as I can tell (no wheels though - were to chose your own I guess. No radio, engine, paint, glue etc included of course for this kind of kit.). See the box top closeup which lists features and inclusions.
Originally called for a .15 cu in gas engine - but who knows the possibilities? :)
