About this Plan

Stinson Reliant. Scale model for rubber power.

Quote: "A 25 inch wingspan flying scale model of the 1934 Stinson Reliant. A cabin plane designed to be aviation's challenge to the air-minded public. 15000 ft flights have been made with this model.

The 1934 model Stinson Reliant though only recently created and marketed hasbecome popular with private airplane owners for its general efficiency. It has a pleasing appearance and embodies all the advanced aeronautical features. This ship is equipped with a pair of 'Speed Arresters' which cut down the landing speed considerable, thus enabling it to land in a smaller area.

In building a reproduction of this ship on a smaller scale, it was found that the resulting flying model was one which every modelist would appreciate. The model retains all the good proportions of its prototype, slight changes being made to improve its flying quality.

The model will be found comparatively simple to construct, even for abeginner, and above all will fly exceptionally well. The model pictured here has opften made flights with suitable weather conditions of well over 1,500 ft and remained aloft for almost 1-1/2 minutes.

The completed model has exceptional strength throughout, notwithstanding the fact that it weighs but 1-3/4 ounces. The special springaxle preserves the landing chassis by absorbing the slightest impulse.

Procudure: Before starting any construction, lay a ong sheet of transparent wax paper over the drawing so that the cement will not adhere to the drawing.

Fuselage: The fuselage frame is built first. It is made by building two sides of the same outline and coupling them with top and bottom braces..."

    ScaleType: This (oz7590) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
