What do you mean, you’ve never heard of the Stinson Reliant? Go and look it up for goodness sake - the Reliant is a classily styled drop of aeroplane from aviation’s golden era. A large, strong, easy-to-fly machine, it served as just about anything you’d care to name – airliner, military utility, ambulance, airmail pick-up, executive transport and so on. The type was produced between 1933 and 1941 with the final version, the SR-10, being the most luxurious not least thanks to leather seats and a walnut dash. The large elliptical gull-wing was the Reliant’s notable trademark feature and those graceful curves have been nicely reproduced here along with rib detail in this EPO foam park-fly model.

When it comes to the weather, putting on an outdoor model show in the UK can be a risky business, even in the height of summer. Mind you, for the last ten years the Hastings Model Airshow, located down south on the English Riviera, seems to have escaped the worst of our all too frequent summer squalls, basking instead in its own little micro-climate. As the hard-working guys and gals of the Hastings MFC would surely testify - just reward for the efforts of all involved, pilots, visitors, and club members alike. Accordingly, when the curtain was raised for the 2006 Airshow, the morning of the July 29 dawned warm and bright, a condition that lasted all weekend, and even spilled over into Monday morning! Now there's a thing.
