Marutaka Stinson SR-8 Reliant

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
This is a rare hard to find Marutaka Stinson SR-8 Reliant kit in NIB condition. This kit is the original version of the kit made in Osaka by the Marutaka family before they went out of business and their inventory was taken over by Royal. I have too many projects on the go right now so it has to go. It has been stored in my heated workshop and all the wood and hardware are top quality, a lot like a Pica kit. Wingspan is 86", fuselage is 54" and it needs a 60 two-stroke or 120 four-stroke. For you scale guys, this is Stinson's famous gull-wing monolane from the golden age of flight. $300 o.b.o.

Re: Marutaka Stinson SR-8 Reliant

Sorry, no picture. However its a heavier than normal box with a photo of the Stinson Reliant on the top. The balsa has been beautifully cut and the hardware is all pre-bent and good qquality. I have not unwrapped all the parts and packages as the box is so well packed. The box is 38"x10"X6".
