Thought I'd post up a pic of something I've been working on. The old discontinued Parkzone Stinson Reliant. It took some searching and some patience, but I was able to source all the parts (with a few spares) to put together this fun, attractive airplane. I had one when they were in production, and sold it as my fleet was evolving and it was just it's time to go to a new owner. Now I've got one, and I can't wait to get it in the air. One of my favorite things to do with this airplane, was touch and goes. Touch and goes all day long. The attached picture is just the airframe with a motor and prop installed. It still needs servos, linkages and so forth. The only things I did different than stock are:
FMS 3536 850kv motor
Rochobby Waco 11x7 prop custom painted (it has the very scale design, albeit the chord of the blades is too wide for scale)
Blacked out all the windows
Printed the image of a Lycoming R680 radial engine and sized it to the plane. It looks fantastic, in my opinion. Small holes in the graphic will allow air to pass into the cowl
Here are some pics with rough measurements of my Carbon Z T-28 travel rig. The measurements are very close to cut pipe length, but do not necessarily take into account the length and geometry of the T fittings and L bows. I am not a technical drawing artist by any means, so its a bit rough. I made this rig using the dimensions of the model as a guide. I just started laying pieces down and connecting them together to see what worked and what didnt. I did use an electric mitre saw so my cuts were fairly accurate once I was happy with the fit.

I finished my GWS Minion Cruiser (Funny Park)
I had a coupon code from Tower Hobbies, and it was a free shipping deal, so I figured it would be a fun little project. Rustoleum 2X Yellow, and blue pinstriping tape from Oreilly's Auto Parts. Park 400 1000kv outrunner. I was going to fit a 35mm spinner, and I still might.
