  Home / Model Kits / Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplane Kits / FF-23 Stinson Reliant
 
Kit FF-23 Stinson Reliant is a 1/28 scale, flying model of the 1938 Stinson Reliant SR-10. It uses the Box and Former method of construction. Our model was designed September 21, 1939 by Ron Clarke. Eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests. It took third place at the Muncie, IN contest in 1999.
 
In 1939, an experimental airmail “sky hook” service was introduced in rural communities that lacked air strips. A bag loaded with mail was positioned on the top of a tall pole. A Stinson Reliant swooped down as the flight officer grappled the airmail container with a long hook while incoming airmail was dropped from the plane to a waiting post office representative.

 
This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand-picked printed balsa and balsa strip wood, rubber motor, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, TissueCal™ markings, clear plastic for the windshield, wheels, wire, and Easy Built Lite tissue in a variety of appropriate colors. You will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.
