"Hello! I have attached some pictures of my version of your FF-35 Stinson Reliant kit. This was the first Easy Built Model I have built and it was a blast! I constructed it pretty close to the plans, but with the edition of some braces to the landing gear. I also used a bit of a different method for the wheel skirts, I used 4 layers of flat stock balsa; a layer of 1/8" balsa and 3 layers of 1/32". For covering I used the chalked tissue method outlined on the 'model tips' page of your site. I used white glue to attach the tissue to the airframe, and then Krylon acrylic satin clear finish to seal it once totally covered. Over all it was a great modeling experience. It was pretty easy going, which is a nice change from some of my last more meticulous builds! It's a great little flier too. I've had the best results with a single 12" loop of the supplied rubber. It tends to have problems overcoming the torque from heavier motors, or more loops, since it's such a little thing. Easily trimmed, it will make nice big slow circles lasting half a minute or longer! I hope you enjoy the pictures. I can't wait to build more Easy Built Models!"
