In 1939, an experimental airmail Sky Hook service was introduced in rural communities that lacked air strips. A bag loaded with mail was positioned on the top of a tall pole. A Stinson Reliant swooped down as the flight officer grappled the airmail container with a long hook while incoming airmail was dropped from the plane to a waiting post office representative.
This kit is a 1:28 scale, flying model of the 1938 Stinson Reliant SR-10. Our model was designed September 21, 1939 by Ron Clarke. Eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests. It took third place at the Muncie, IN contest in 1999.
