If you didn't have one , or several in my case as I used to lose or break many, you don't know what fun you were missing. If I saved all the money I spent on North Pacific gliders I could have retired by now. Skeeters , Sleek Streak , Star Flyers etc. This is one of the smallest North Pacific made at approx. 7 inches in length. I don't think it is overstating it when I say that North Pacific gliders taught a generation of aeromodellers and full size pilots the basics of aerodynamics. Still sealed in its packet . A lovely item .
