What To Build

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have the opportunity to build either another Giant Corsair or the 100" Stinson Reliant and I'm not really sure which one to build.
So I put out the question as to which one would should I build.

Thanks Gang.

Re: What To Build

You've already built a Corsair, why not try the Stinson?

Re: What To Build

I pretty sure the Stinson would cost less to get in the air as well.

Re: What To Build

Randy, I'm kind of bias. Therefore my vote won't count.

Re: What To Build


OK, now I'm editing my not-so-helpful answer. I vote for the Stinson IF you would be into a nice scale vintage monoplane with a good military history as well. It just has that classic aviation look and could be finished in so many interesting and unique ways. No, it wouldn't be "thrilling" to fly, but would be a sheer delight to bring through on a low pass, or to bank the turns with lots of rudder. You could put in lots of great detail in the build and it would likely be a strong SOB that would last years.
