Dumas Kit #301 Stinson Reliant SR-10 by heywooood
Don CInteresting perspective. The motor looks like the kit I got from Dare that I used in my Solution.
Skyediamonds1985HW: your model looks great! I built an old Sterling R/C sized kit of the SR-7. Took great pains to fabricate the fairings along the wing struts and landing gears through use of resin mixed with micro balloons. Also did the complete interior. I used rolled up cotton wrapped in cloth, like small cigarettes and glued them together side by side to form the tucked and rolled back seat. Interesting thing is the arm rest in the back were recessed into the side cabin walls.

Scratch Built North American P-51B by Don C
Don CHere we go again. Rescaled to 1:24
Don CFrom early Comet plan. Can't tell which model it is, but I think I'll make it an "A".
bsadonkillLooks good so far. I want to do the 18 inch P-40 someday, if i ever get to it.
Uncle benzIs it possible to send me a copy of the plan ? If yes my mail: besnardjean-charles@orange.fr thank you...
BriandKilbyyou could build the a-36 apache? lol!
raylUncle Benz: Check your e-mail. Enjoy!!
Don CUncle Benz: both 1:24 scale versions are ready to mail. Brian: When you look at the plans, they have to be either the A-36 or P51-A. The B had an air intake just under the nose and spinner.
hjlittmanI've done the Comet 18 inch P-51 and a dozen of the P-40s (over a Period of 60 years) and the nice thing about them is that they fly.
Skyediamonds1985The "B" also had 4-bladed propeller whereas the "A" had a 3 blader... Ahem, just an FYI.

ONTARIO FOREST FIRE MAP - this is the worst forest fire year in Ontario in 50 years, and it is only half way through August, eclipsing the the big fire "flap" year of 1980 when I fought forest fires.
