Default Berkeley 42" Stinson Reliant SR9-C E-Conversion

I won an Ebay auction for this 1959 vintage kit. I like the flat plate windshield SR-8 version so I redesigned the windshield and wing mounting arrangement, moved the landing gear forward and relocated formers and side window framing etc to match Wylam SR-8 drawings. I am using my MiniAC1215/16 BL motor in a GWS 300 gearbox set up now in A ratio to spin an 8x6 prop. May go with 8 KAN 950 NiMh cells but could save 4 oz with Lipolies if I make the leap.
I have about a month more of steady work to complete the model which so far has been mostly head scratching. I have a build thread running on E-Zone Scale Modeling if you're interested.
