Stinson Reliant 57in

Sterling Models's Stinson Reliant 57in

Very large and high quality kit with 57 9/16 inch wingspan. Designed for RC and .40 to .56 size glow engines, but easily converted to electric power. Features top grade die cut and numbered balsa parts, step by step full size plans with instructions, scale decals, linkage hardware, vacuform cowl, wheel pants, strut fairings, formed aluminum landing struts and much more. At 100% complete kit it includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacture dating back to the 1930/40's flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980's. I always considered Sterling kits to be difficult kits even though they are still highly popular to this day.

Previous builders complain of weak wing construction and problems while in flight. A skilled scratch builder may be able to construct the formers although the plans are complete some of the information is hand written and barely readable. The rest of the typed instruction is scalable (vector) written right on the plan. The kit itself is intended for and advanced builder.

Love building and flying. I've always flown on private property and only been involved with clubs twice. I live in southern Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls. I build at least one plane a year. I am fairly new to 3D helicopters.

My name is Donnie and I've been flying planes, helicopters, racing cars and launching rockets since 1970 when I got my first U-control plane from Carl Goldberg models. I finally got my first RC in 1983 a Cessna 182 kit with four channels. My favorite planes are 3D of every sort of aircraft. Anything capable of punching holes in the sky. IRL I work with programming and I use the skills I have to build my own designs and plans. Thank you for the donations.
