    This is review from June 1999 R/C Modeler

    Vol. 36 - No. 6 by Jerry Festa

    WE LIKED THE: Ease of construction, well-engineered cabane alignment, quality of die-cutting, and flight performance.

    WE DIDN'T LIKE THE: Attaching hinges to plywood wingtip.

    Every so often, a particular model arrives on the modeling scene and, for some reason, pulls dearly at your heart. This may happen when a manufacturer first releases the kit; at other times, it strikes when you see one of them fly at your local field. In the case of Midwest's Super Stinker, I was impressed when I saw a prototype at Toledo, but after I saw one fly, it quickly became a "gotta have" addition to my hangar. When Jim Pearson asked if I would build one for a kit review, it must have taken a whole microsecond to accept! After talking it over with my wife, it was decided that this was going to be one of those "special" planes in that it would be built and decked out "First Class" - meaning items like servos, engines, accessories, etc., would be the best. Not that any of these items would be necessary for this plane to perform up to its potential, but an opportunity like this doesn't come along every day, so when the UPS man dropped off the 12" x 6.5" x 39" box, my "banker" and I had a wife-to-husband talk! The Super Stinker would require a new engine, seven servos, along with a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants. These were serious considerations, but well worth the additional efforts needed to obtain these items.
