SIG Manufacturing Co.
Kit & ARF Production History
These pages contain everything I have found on-line concerning the production history of model airplane kits & ARFs from SIG Manufacturing Company, including kits from other manufacturers that SIG has carried over the years. The purpose is purely for my own curiosity, as I've been a major fan of SIG model airplanes since I was a teenager (many, many decades ago).
For most non-ARF kits, I've got original box art in addition to aircraft pics. A few have advertisement pics, some have plans - whatever I could find. Some even have currently operational aircraft pics. Most include links to the original construction manuals in .pdf form, and many have complete specs in .pdf form .
All information has been obtained from MANY sources across the web, far too many for me to keep track of, but RC Groups, RC Universe, e-bay, Worthington auctions, Mike himself and the SIG Company, and many personal websites were the main sources.
As far as I know, this is the most complete listing of SIG kits that exists, probably including within SIG Mfg Co. There are only 2 known kits missing, RC-10 and RC-11 - and they're just 2 of the 3 variants of the same plane, the RC-12 Simco, which IS included here.
The newest addition to the long-running SIG line are the entries from Alien Acft Corp - released and offered by SIG in January & June
2016, and the Rascal-168 - first seen at the 2016 Toledo Weak Signals Expo.
My most sincere THANKS go to Mike Gretz at SIG Mfg Co. for providing the original basic listing.

It's with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Mike Gretz, Chief designer at SIG, on 15 January 2016. Mike was a good friend, wonderful mentor of many, and absolutely indispensable in the origin of this website. His original e-mail to me with the "official" listing of SIG kits was what gave me my original direction, and is included at the bottom of this page.
