1/48 AMT Stinson Reliant SR-9

Happy to share my first civil aircraft build on the ARC site. This is a AMT 1:48 kit Stinson Reliant SR-9 that were manufactured between 1933 and 1941. These were sturdy aircraft and could land on semi prepared runways.

The aircraft was painted with local camel acrylic colours. Spraying the gold acrylic was a challenge and required frequent cleaning of the airbrush. The gold color came out very well and provides a nice contrast to the gloss white..

I have used the decals that came with the AMT kit. The kit itself is quite good and required minimum amount of sanding and filling. I paired this gullwing personal  plane with a Chevy pickup to create a small diorama. Hope you like it.
