This appears to be a semi-scale model of the Mini-Max. Best of luck with the build and the flying.

Hi Jim,
Yes that is the one ! I am going to making mine look close to the one in the photo! It will be a refreshing change of pace. And generous wing area, at 18.5" I will post more photos soon.
Thank you!
Joe

Fuselage

Hi Guys,
Fuselage is almost done. I made the engine a cowl little different, as I want it more scale.

That is very nice looking. Excellent job on the assembly. Colors are a good choice.

Joe. Why did you have to go and start this post about the Micromax!!! Now I got to get one for myself. I have over 20 planes and at least 8 of them are Stevens aero kits. Great kits and I love them but I find many of his micro's too heavy for the Parkzone brushed motors and when possible I go with a 180 brushless on 2 cells. Really livens them up. I'll probably go brushless on the Micromax. Really great job you did on yours and let us know how it fly's and maybe post a video.
